SOURCE: Yard Machines 22 inch mower, I dumped it on its

if you bent the blade most likely you bent the crankshaft too.
Remove the spark plug and pull the rope and remove excess oil from the spark plug hole
check the spark plug for spark if you have none then a flywheel key is sheered a more in depth fix.
If you get it started you may notice a whole lota vibration due to a bent crank shaft or maybe not?

SOURCE: how to remove and replace rear wheel tire on my

Part # 634-0020 is listed for the FRONT wheel. Your post asks about the rear wheel. I was unable to determine if the same part number fits the rear.

FRONT
1) Remove plastic hub cab with a screwdriver around the outer edge.

2) Loosen the shoulder bolt in the center of the wheel (My guess is that you will need a 3/4 inch socket).

3) Leave the bolt and all washers/bushings together and remove the entire wheel assembly as a unit (the bolt serves as the axle).

4) Note the component locations and install the new wheel exactly as the old came off. Do one side at a time to be sure the reassembly is in correct order.

Working from the bolt-head to the mount hole, the assembly should go as follows: Shoulder-Bolt, Wave-Washer, Wheel-Bushing, Wheel, Wheel Bushing, Bell-Cone Washer, Mounting-Hole.

REAR
1) Remove plastic hub cab with a screwdriver around the outer edge.

2) Straighten and remove 1/8 inch cotter pin from center of axle and slide ratchet-spur off the axle while making note of the tooth direction.

3) Slide the remainder of the wheel assembly off the axle.

4) Remove the small shoulder bolt from the ratchet-pawl and note the direction. Remove the ratchet-pawl and ratchet-plate from the wheel. On the inside of the wheel is a "pem-nut" which may need to be held with pliers.

5) Reassemble Ratchet-Plate, Pawl, Pem-Nut, Spur and Cotter Pin in the reverse order.

As was mentioned before, doing one at a time will help keep the parts in the proper order.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: how too replace the blade drive belt on a murray

Its actually really easy. First, determine the size of your mower deck. Is it 30" 42" 54" etc. Then, go to a home improvement store like Lowes or The Home Depot (or an online retailer.) Search for a replacement belt for your deck size. Removing the old one is easy. Pry back the retainers on the engine pulley and slip the belt off of the pulley. This should make it very easy to pull off the mower deck. Installation is the opposite of removal. Make sure you note the belt arrangement for proper installation. Good luck!

How to lower lawn mower


Cindy, if it's already at the lowest setting, you kinda / sorta answered your own question, i.e. it can't be adjusted any lower; but, as you may be aware, there is an adjuster at every wheel, and by putting all wheels at the same - lower - level, you will get a lower, mowing height; and if you've already done that, or there are no 'individual adjusters', they wheels are typically bolted to the frame and there are usually several holes to bolt the wheel to - simply un-bolt and re-bolt to achieve the lowest, preferred height.

How to adjust the height of the mower


If you mower does not have adjusters on the wheels then there should be three holes where the wheels are bolted onto the base. to adjust these you have to take each wheel off and bolt them in the same hole for each wheel. The top holes are the lowest the mower can be set the middle ones bring it up part way and the bottom hole is the highest setting. You should set the mower to cut at least two and a half inches above the ground. The center holes should be good.

How do I Lower my yard machine mower to cut grass shorter?


there should be adjustments on each wheel.
Place the machine on a flat level surface and adjust each wheel so the blades are at the height you want it to be. Make sure all the wheels are all at the same height. Usually, the bottom of the deck lip to the floor equal all around.

The hover fly mower sits on the grass, being that there are no height settings, it cuts quite low. Are there way's to make the mower sit higher off the ground in order to cut the grass at a higher...


Usually all mowers have height adjustments of some kind. Look around your front and rear wheels, if you have a number of holes drilled into the deck ,these are your adjustment holes.You would unbolt the wheels and put them at the height you would like.
If as you say there is no adjustment, I would say buy new wheels that are an inch or more bigger than your present wheels and install them in place of your old wheels. If you go to any local dealer they will be able to help you with your problem.

Black and decker 18 inch flip over handle electric lawn mower cat #8019 don't know how to adjust height it is cutting way too low


There is no height lever on this simple mower. To change the height of cut, the wheels themselves must be moved up or down. First, unplug the mower. Turn it over on its side. You'll see that the wheels attach to the frame with simple bolts, and that there are two open holes at each wheel (three holes at different heights altogether, but one of the holes is occupied by the current mounting height of the wheels). Undo each bolt for all four wheels and move them to a new position. Note that the wheel-mounting holes are drilled 5/8-inch apart from each other. If you want to add another hole there is room on the sheet metal to make a new hole for each wheel, and this would put the mower body and blade very high off the ground, if used. You can make that new hole for each wheel with your electric drill. But I think your mower is probably set to the lowest of the three holes, so see first if moving the wheels 5/8-inch higher is better for your lawn, and, if not, then use the 1 1/4-inch higher set of holes on all four wheels. Make sure to move each wheel to the same height hole! Good luck, be safe. --Joe, Tucson, AZ

Hi, got a Craftsman 20 Hp 42 inch cut , the Deck will not lay flat, it is always on a angle. any ideas ? No matter what the cut height is set at.


Hi tubbed,

Most of these decks are held on at three points. Two are in line 90 degrees from front to back. The other is attached to the height adjust lever.

The first two are adjustable to change the type of angle problems you are having. Make sure you have the engine off when checking. Adjust until the desired angle is reached.

Also, if the model your problem is categorized under does not match your model, the cause of the angle and the solution may be different.

Best regards
Mike

How to adjust height on tractor mower model no. 917.270812? I turn the adjustment knob and it will lock in only on the highest and lowest heights and nowhere in between.


You need to turn that knob to its highest point with the deck height lever to its highest setting. Now turn that knob counter clockwise a few turns and let the deck lever all the way down. That knob will stop the lever part way down. If it mowes to high rase that deck lever again and turn that knob counter clockwise some more and let that deck lever down again. Repete till you have the correct cutting height. If you were cutting to low turn the knob clockwise insted of counter clockwise in the instruction above. The knob only set the stop of the deck lever. Once set the deck lever lifts the deck up and holds it but when you let that lever down it returns to its mowing set height.
