Wow, I hope nobody was hurt.

To extract the remainder of the bolt, you need to first hit the hardware store. If you have a piece that broke off, bring it. ( or the mower) You need a replacement bolt anyway.

Ask about 'Easy-Outs' and the what size drill bit corresponds to the one you need.

What they are is similar to a punch with course left handed threads.

The idea is you drill a hole in the bolt at a specific size for a specific easy-out. Pound in the easy-out so it can get a bite on the bolt and start unscrewing.

The left hand thread keeps a hold on the bolt while the bolt is unscrewing. Yes, it's a marvelous world. But not a perfect one.

Best get some penetrating oil too. And pull the spark plug before doing anything.

Best regards

Mike

What holds pully on shaft for lawn keeper blade


I have an old model Lawn Keeper gas edger with a 2HP Briggs and Stratton engine. It uses a 30" fan belt to drive the cutting blade and both pulleys have an alllen head set screw holding the pulleys to the shafts. The pulleys are cast aluminum and the set screw and shafts are steel so I find need penetrating oil and heat to loosen the set screw in order to push the drive pulley further on the shaft to make room to replace the drive belt.

I cannot remove the blade from my B&D MM575 mulching mower. The manual says to block the blade, then loosen the nut. However, when I block the blade and turn the nut, the shaft continues to turn,...


You can use a pipe wrench on the shaft and a regular wrench on the nut. Disconnect your spark plug and tip the mower onto it's left side. You will have to use your left hand to go down through the mower shoot to hold the pipe wrench and your right hand to unbolt the the blade attaching bolt, it should come off immediately.
Remember you may have to purchase a new blade holder, since your problem shouldn't occur if your blade holder was OK. GOOD LUCK.

How do i lock blade so i can un screw the bolt. I need to resharp the blade


I use a piece of 2x4 . Tip mower onto it's left side, stand 2x4 between deck and blade and remove bolt. You will need to use your leg to keep mower from rolling back. This is just a simple and inexpensive way. You may also buy a special tool to hold the blade while you remove the bolt.
GOOD LUCK>

There are two philips screws on top. I got them with a screw extractor as they were rusted. You won't be able to fasten the blade from the motor side though.

How do I change the drive belt on a 7021r mower? The drive will move the mower on pavement but not on the grass


First, you need to make sure you have the right tools for the job. You'll need a wrench, work gloves, mower blade clamp, drain pan and fresh fuel. Check your owner's manual for the correct belt to your specific lawn mower. Belts that are not specifically designed for your mower will not fit properly and may wear down prematurely. Next, remove the spark plug wire. This is a safety precaution to prevent the mower from accidentally starting.
Now you can remove the screws that secure the drive cover to the mower deck. Once you've taken off the drive cover, loosen the screw that holds the belt tension spring to the transmission. As the screw is loosened, tension on the belt is released allowing you to remove the belt off of the front transmission pulley.
At this point you'll need to turn your mower on its side to take off the mower blade. Be sure to use a work glove to protect your hand when removing the mower blade. You can use a lawn mower blade clamp over the blade to secure it. Unscrew the bolt to remove the blade and then the engine baffle. Once the pulley unit is exposed, you can remove the entire drive belt. Insert the new drive belt and place one end on the rear pulley and re-attach the engine baffle. Then, place the mower blade back (making sure it's facing the correct way with bottom of the blade facing the ground) and tighten the bolt. Remove the clamp and return the mower to its upright position so you can place the other end of the belt to the front pulley. Remember to tighten the screw to the tension spring.
Put the front drive cover back on, tighten the screw that secures the cover to the deck and reconnect the spark plug wire. Add new fuel to your mower and you're done!

How do I undo the bolts holding the blades on my Masport 400 mower? When I try the disc holding the blades just keeps rotating.


The easiest way is with an impact wrench. If you don't have one there is usually a hole in the disc where you can insert a screw driver to lock it from turning.

1957 Sunbeam Twin-Blade electric lawn mower shaft bushing

Generic problem for all Vacuums
1957 Sunbeam Twin-Blade electric lawn mower shaft...
Posted by mower man on Jun 08, 2008
I have a late 50's series Sunbeam twin-blade electric lawn mower that I use regularly. The shaft bushing(s) on the left blade has worn out, and there's too much play for me to run it w/o ruining the machine.
It appears that the belt-run cog inside the housing is the part that is supposed to come off of the shaft to get to the bushings, but instead of a cotter pin or other fastener holding the cog in place, it looks like a rolled metal pin that may have been pressed in place.
How do I replace the shaft bushings so I can keep using this great vintage appliance!? I found a website that supplies parts for this model year, but no schematics or user manuals. Thanks!


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. This website is for vacuums and you would need to contact a local lawn mower shop in the yellow pages, they are amazing about the way they can fix old lawnmowers.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
