LX-178..replaced rear wheel and found a 2 inch pin on the floor. The clutch will not work..spins..where does this pin go?


It is likely a roll pin that attaches the shift clutch arms to the trans-axle. These pins do not usually remove easily. Look carefully at each arm assembly to find the one missing. Replace with a new pin.

Hope this helps?

The right rear wheel is not driving. Can you help


You probably shears something. There's probably a keyway with a broken shear key in it or perhaps a spring pin or clevis/hitch pin that's been broken. Try to look in the hub where the shaft goes through it coming from the transmission, if you see holes you need some sort of pin. If you take the wheel completely off and see a keyway in the shaft, you probably sheared the key and need a new one.

GTH2654T WILL NOT DRIVE R BACK UP


did you have the rear wheels off or one of the rear wheels off to do something?...sounds like one of the square keys that drive the wheels is missing. I did it myself once.pulled and wheel and forgot to put it back in. same response. check both rear wheels to make sure the key in still in both slots of the wheel. its a 2 or 3 inch piece of 1/4 x 1/4 inch square stock. if you lost it you can buy square stock 1/4 inch at a good hardware store.

Remove the center dust caps from the rear axles, start the tractor up and put it in gear and observe the axles, if one of them is spinning freely inside the wheel, you have lost the 1/4" square key that pins the wheel to the axle. Replace the key and you can go back to mowing. Hope this helped Tim

My victa 4013tx will not drive . the drive belt is on and correctly tensioned but have no drive. was working fine when last used but had a flat tyre when i went to use it and all i've done is removed and...


You removed the rear tire?
My first guess is there is a "key" that holds the tire to the axle. It will be a piece of steel about 1/4 inch square and 1 inch long or a Woddruff key like the one pictured below. Go back to the location where you removed the wheel and find it. Remove your wheel and reinsert the key. toolboxhero_1.jpg

How to remove and replace rear wheel tire on my mtd self propelled lawn mower model #126-478n134 part #634-0020 tire sized 8 inches.


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!

Won't move


Remove the center dust caps from the rear axles, start the tractor up and put it in gear and observe the axles, if one of them is spinning freely inside the wheel, you have lost the 1/4" square key that pins the wheel to the axle. Replace the key and you can go back to mowing. This often happens when a flat has been repaired and the wheel pushes the key out the back as you slide it back on the axle. Sometimes it will just barely catch at the edge of the wheel and work for a while then fall out and you not even know it

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.
