The shaft key is a weaker link allowing independent spin in the event of a catastrophy. Your engine is spinning and a blade is halted by a stump or block. Something has to give and the key is that something instead of inertia curling your driveshaft. You will find one of these on the engine's crankshaft, and one on each side of the rear axle. If you fail to insert it on reassembly you will be freewheeling.

Poulan pro pr185h42st How do I remove the steering column


Do you have the tractor operator's manual? There are parts diagrams in the back. If not, here is a typical Poulan Pro Manual It looks like you should.

1. Remove the steering wheel.
2. Remove the steering shaft extension
3. Remove the clip from the shaft down by the steering sector.
4. At this point the steering shaft may slide out the bottom of the tractor through a hole in the frame. If there is no hole you will have to remove the complete steering sector from the tractor.
