SOURCE: The rear wheels will not turn in reverse at all. I

Rear wheel drives like this have pinion gears with rachet pawls that allow them to go backwards freely while locking when the transmission drives them.

You need to take off your rear wheels and carefully remove the pawls. They look like little squareish metal shaft keys with springs under them. You should notice that the keys or pawls are covered in what looks like grease.....which is actually worm metal from the pinion gear and oil mixed together to form this pastey greasey substance. Clean all that stuff off and lightly oil *( light oil...3 in 1 kind of oil) and reassemble.

You should hear the nice clean clicking of the rachet pawls as you roll backwards again!

Good luck and be careful!

Remove the spark plug and try pulling the starter again. You may have a fuel leakage into the cylinder and it has caused a hydraulic lock. Check/change the needle and seat in the carb as this leaking is the usual cause if this type of problem. Good luck and please rate this solution.

I have a Lawn Boy 10685. It sat for about 4 years. It would not start. I replaced the spark plug and added gas. It started right up, but the engine is high revving? what would cause this? How do I fix


Sounds like the return spring on the air vane governor is stretched. Take the shroud off and look for the paddle shaped piece of plastic next to the flywheel. There should be no slack in the attached spring. You can shorten the spring if needed with a pair of needle nose pliers.

Model 10640 how to adjust self-propel drive cable


If the V-belt is old, you'll need to install a new V-belt first ,then IIRC,the adjustment is by sliding the bale conduit on the side of the handle.

Oil mixture for 1985f series 2 cycle lawn-boy mower


Contact your dealer ! but 32:1 sounds correct. 8 ounces of Lawnboy oil to two gallons of gasoline ....is 32:1, 8 ounces of oil to one gallon of fuel is 16:1 for the real old lawnboys,
When Toro bought out OMC,and started using Tecumseh mowers,the ratio changed in the late 80's or early nineties ! IIRC :o)

I have a Lawn Boy 10685 with a Tecumseh motor will it run with rear mulch switch off and either wired together or left open?


If you are getting spark, it should run, usually safety switches connect to ground out the coil to give no spark.

I have a Lawn Boy 10685. Changed the blade and went to start the mower and the pull cord will not pull. I tried spinning the blade by hand with no luck. I took the starter apart and it spins fine. I check...

Does not walk good.....could the cable stretch or is the belt loose or housing needs adjusting?


Check the drive belt for tension first...most likely the belt has stretched out with use over time.
