Question about Garden
How do i remove a front tire/rim of a Troy Bilt Super Bronco lawn tractor? I need to replace the tire, tire is flat and coming off of the rim. It has a plastic cover over the center of the rim, where I might find a bolt or lug nut...but the plastic cover won't come off.

Remove spark plug
Remove cover from engine that covers the flywheel
Remove rockerarm cover or valve cover
Find TDC (top dead center) by rotating the flywheel by hand and your finger over the spark plug hole as you rotate the flywheel you will feel pressure against you finger at some point then stop.
This is the compression stroke it is called now find a long slim round piece of plastic or plastic ink pen to stick in the spark plug hole (If you are careful a slim screwdriver can be used ) and find the piston top, then slowly rotate flywheel again (cw) as the piston is moving up pushing the plastic up as you rotate the flywheel slowly.
a max. piston up or tdc as you turn you will feel and then the piston starts to go the other way,at that transition this is tdc (piston is on top of stroke) leave it there,,both valves should be closed at that point.
Have a feeler gauge and set the exhaust valve at a loose .002 and the intake a loose .004 be sure engine is cold when valves are adjusted
Feeler gauge goes in between the rocker arm tip and valve stem top for each valve setting.
Note the rocker adjustment at the push rod side of each valve by tightening and loosening to make adjustments,lock your adjustments in place and rotate flywheel a few times and recheck settings

Go to this website, upper right hand corner and do a parts look up.
Search for your model and that good stuff they ask of you and then
choose mower housing should be there, browse the site it's really cool

On the front wheel is held on by an E clip, there is a large washer that a plastic cap is snapped onto. If you pry against the egde it will pop off, then remove the E-clip, a large standard blade screwdriver will work ( don't lose it, it will try to fly away), then slide the wheel off after you have jacked it up and supported the front of the tractor.
Hope this helped
