Hi,

  • 1

    Pull the tractor onto a hard surface, such as the driveway.

  • 2

    Find the leak in the tire. If it is caused by a large nail that is visible and goes all the way through the tire, you will have to replace the tire. If it is a small hole, it can be repaired.

  • 3

    Connect the the tire's nozzle to the can of tire sealant if the tire can be repaired. Spray the tire sealant according to the recommended usage on the can. For smaller tires, use only half the can. For a larger tire, use almost the whole can.

  • 4

    Put the jack under the front or rear base of the tractor, which is right in front of or right behind the axle, depending on the tire, if the tire needs to be replaced. Raise the portion of the lawn mower so the tire that needs to be changed is off the ground.

  • 5

    Unscrew the bolt in the center with a wrench or a socket. Most likely, it is a 3/8 inch wrench or socket. Take off the old tire.

  • 6

    Remove the tire from the rim. A flat screwdriver can be used to help pull the tire from the rim.

  • 7

    Put a new tire on the rim after removing the old one. A new Craftsman tire has to be obtained from the Craftsman hotline at 800-469-4663, as retail stores do not carry them. Fill the tire with air. If you can't get the tire to seal on the rim, you'll have to take the tire and rim to a tire shop.

  • 8

    Replace the repaired tire and rim assembly on the mower in reverse order of the way you took it off.

    Jack the mower up at the rear and make it stable before doing any work on it, remove the rear wheels by removing the hub caps if they are still on the wheels and remove the cir clip and washer on each wheel and remove the wheels. there will be a key way on each axle when you remove the wheel, make sure they are put back in their place when assembling the wheels onto the axles or you will not have any drive on the wheels
    Remove the drive belt, brake rod etc then support the trans axle before removing the retaining bolts and removing the trans axle from the mower. hope this helps.
    If you are not mechanically inclined then you should leave the repairs of the trans axle to the mower repair shop unless you are buying a new or reconditioned trans axle, in which case you can fit the new trans axle in the reverse order of removal.

    Remove front tire on lawn mower


    Jill,

    If the tire has a hole have you considered a Plug?

    If thats not an option before you can pull the tire off, there should be a small snap ring holding it in place. please use blocks to block the tires and do the following.
  • Park the lawn mower on a level surface, then place the wheel chocks in front and behind the rear tires.
  • 2Place the jack under the frame at the front of the mower. Raise the mower up and place the jack stands under each side of the frame. Lower the jack until the mower frame sits firmly on the jack stands
  • 3Remove the plastic cap in the center of the wheel by hand; this should expose the snap ring holding the wheel to the axle.
  • 4Pry the snap ring off the axle with the flathead screwdriver. Slide off the washer, wheel and the shim washers from the axle.

    To replace tire follow steps 3 and 4 in reverse order. place shim washers back on and then wheel and then snap ring, etc...

    hope this helps

    After the E-clip is removed and the washers slide off the wheel should slide off. This being a rear wheel it has to come straight off due to the key. Nothing else holds the wheel on. If it is not just sliding off, it is okay to use a little force to pull it off.

    I hope this helps.

    I purchased a older MTD 12 HP lawn tractor. How do I remove the rear wheels in order to replace the tires? Do I need a special tool. I can not see anything to put a wrench to.


    theres a screw and a bell washer in the center of the rear wheel , maybe covered by a cap, check this link for a breakdown on that machine as its what I located with the specs you gave http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Mtd-Parts/Riding-mower-tractor-Parts/Model-33925A/0736/1509200/WL000275/00009

    I own a Sears Yard Machine riding mower and the rear tires are flat and I'm trying to remove the tire and take it to tire dealer to check for leaks and plug. My problem is HOW TO REMOVE THE REAR...


    there is a cap over the end of the axle, it snaps off. with the rear end jacked in the air remove the C-clip which you find under the cap. the wheels will then pull off. make sure you put them back on correctly, there is an inside and an outside. If you reverse it, you will rub a groove in the tire and it will go flat and have to be replaced and they cost more than car tires. And do not pull the wheel off in the lawn or in a gravel driveway. when the wheel comes off a small key will fall to the ground. you will need to re-install this key when you put it back together or the wheels will not move. if you lose the key into the grass or gravel you will have to go to a real hardware store or small engine repair shop to buy another.

    I have a L110 automatic john deere rider ant i have a flat and I cant get the back rear tire off


    Should be an easy fix....remove plastic dust cap from end of axle... you should see a "C" shaped circlip keeper key in a slot on the end of the shaft with a washer under it...place the flat blade of a screwdriver under the slot in the key and pry upward from close to the middle...the circlip should slide right out...remove the washer from the end of the axle...the wheel is held in place by a woodruff type key slotted into the axle and wheel....sometimes rust, dirt, and crud gets between the axle and the wheel and kind of sticks it in place,,,try squirting a little penetrating oil or WD-40 in the keyway slot and let sit for a few minutes...you may have to take either a dead blow hammer, or a piece of 2x4 and a hammer and give the end of the axle a whack or two to get it to break loose...while pulling on the wheel and tire (you may have to get the wife to help with this one, her pull and you whack) after the wheel breaks free and slides off the axle clean the keyway, key and the axle with sand paper and grease it before you replace them...also clean the inside of the wheel hub....I use waterproof grease on the axle to prevent water from entering and rusting the axle....I do this procedure on both back wheels each fall before storing the machine for the winter ( just a good maintenance procedure they don't tell you about....) hope this helps... ;-D

    I want to repair one of the rear tires. How do I disassemble?


    Hard rubber or plastic cap in center to be gently pried off, this will expose a C clip holding the wheel onto a splined shaft. Jack the mower frame up until the tire is off the ground. Remove C clip and then the wheel, being careful keep it, the washers, and the key in order. If you lose the key, which will fall out when you pull the wheel off, axle will not spin the wheel when you put it back together. Note tire can accidentally be put on backwards, so make sure you do not do that or you will rub a groove right through the tire. Mower tires cost more than car tires. Most tire shops can also fix large mower tires.

    My rear wheels keep poppping off. I've hammered and glued, but they won't stay on. Do I need new wheels or a new axle assembly?


    Greetings,

    You may need to just purchase the the little c-clips that hold the wheels onto the axle. Kirby Vacuums actually have a hub cap on their rear wheels that can be removed to access the axle end with the c-clip. If you take a flat head screwdriver, and pry off the plastic part of the wheel off of the rubber part, you should be able to see the end of the axle. There should be a little tiny c-clip at the end of the axle that holds the rear wheel in place. Is that clip there on both sides?

    If yes, then you may need to replace the entire axle assembly. If they are missing these clips are available for purchase through many online websites including our own, govacuum.com.

    If this repair didn't fix your Kirby, please contact me, I'm happy to try and diagnosis this further with you. If it did help, please rate the repair as helpful, thank you.

    I cannot get the rear wheel off the tractor. Question... the ''square key''... I thought mine was missing & secured another one, but WHAT DO I DO WITH THE SQUARE KEY ? Is the original still in the hub part...


    Here is what my manual says. It is for a 14 hp 42" mower deck. 6 sped transaxle.
    Block up axle securely.
    Remove axle cap, retaining ring and washer to allow wheel removal (rear wheel contains a square key. Do not lose).
    Repair the tire and reassemble.
    On rear wheels only: align grooves in rear wheel hub and axle. Insert square key.
    replace washers and snap retaining ring securely in axle groove.
    Replace axle cap.
    If you send me your email address I can send you a picture as I do not know how to post pictures on here yet.
