Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
You got it, righty tighty, they put right hand threads on most lawn mowers and spin the engine in the direction that won't spin the bolt out, so you don't need to torque it on there with 50,000 lbs of torque, Just snug it up, then you can get it off again when you have to. A buddy of mine goes through blades like the Tasmanian devil, he grinds them with a wheel and puts them on with an impact driver, so he has to get the impact out to get them off, no curbside repairs for him. I tried to show him how to sharpen the blades with a 4 1/2 inch disc, but he would have it. He has a pile of ground down blades!! Get a piece of pipe on your ratchet handle to get the bolt loose. Get a pair of gloves on to hold the blade. If it is a left hand thread, I want to know about it. Hope this helps.
