SOURCE: Toro self propelled mower rear wheel keeps falling off

Are these regular bolt on wheels? Have you changed the nut?

I would expectc to find a "Stover" nut on such an appllication. Stover nuts are similar to "NY-Lock" but without the nylon lock. Rather, Stover (and you have to ask for them at the hardware or auto parts place), are not round and/or have had a certain side portion punched to make the nut hard to put on. Some well meaning back yard mechanics (read me) have 'fixed' the Stover by running a tap through them maning them easier to get onto the threads ... but alas, it didnt stay. That was how I learned about Stover.

Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Rear wheel drive does not push mower when engaged.

remove the rear wheels and check the gears in the wheels- they are plastic and part of the circumfrance on the inside of the wheel. If worn replace wheels.
also check belt- it should be tight with very little play when drive is engaged ( obvioulsy check this with engine off).

Tightening steering wheel on husqvarna tractor 42in 15 horsepower no. yth1542

Interesting! The steering gear can commonly become loose at a several points. I would check the steering wheel itself, prise off the central plastic cover and make sure the nut underneath is tight. Check the gear at the bottom of the steering wheel shaft, if this gets loose it can jump the gear teeth. Sometimes this is so bad the steering wheel will turn without moving the wheels. Tighten everything and replace any worn parts.

Steering on my Toro lx420 is loose. It takes numerous turns of the wheel to engage gear. I just replaced the gear and pinion but there is still alot of play between the pinion and gear.

Steering shaft has oil-lite bushing that wears = replace bushing. FWI, you posted in the wrong section--this is for cars and trucks.

Is there a larger steering wheel that fits Husky YTA19k42 mower? Standard is approx 12" diameter.

Have you tried a steering wheel handle? Small knob that fits to a steering wheel which saves having to grip the wheel. People with dexterity difficulties use them on cars here in the UK, here's a video of one from the US

Sounds like the sterring wheel is striped

Sorry I don't have a solution but have a similar problem. I replaced the steering pinion gear in hopes that would resolve the problem, but it didn't. The steering pinion gear is located at the bottom of the steering shaft and turns the steering gear. Looks like the steering gear needs to be replaced as well. The nuts securing the steering gear are accessible in the same area as the pinion steering gear. I am going to order a replacement steering gear and attempt to replace it.

The steering wheel turns but the wheels are not

Inspect your steering for any linkage that has come loose. Check it from steering wheel to the front wheels. Repair any thing that is loose or just hanging.

Good luck.
