SOURCE: Need to remove rear wheels to replace tires on MTD riding mower.

most likely rust has taken over
find some liquid wrench or pb blaster and spray the axles liberally and let it penetrate the axles and wheel hubs where the axle goes through.
use a 2x4 and a hammer to tap against the wheel hub to try to move it down the axle then tap in back on to try to free it up as the penetrating oil works in, spin the wheel and tap in different areas of it
the worst case cenario would be to use a torch and heat the axle and hub up and drive it off, but it sounds as though you are moving it some and with some patience they eventually should come off
when you put them back be sure to coat the axle with some grease and do not forget to reinstall the key stock in each wheel, if they have it
the bolt in the center of the axle is all you need to remove and note where the washers came from and where they go back.

hope this helps you some

My John Deere STX 38--I took the brakes completely apart and cleaned and put back and adusted. The brake disc stops, but the axle keeps turning? Is something broke in the rearend/axle?


the disk should be bolted to the axle. im not real familiar with j.d. but i know the disk bolts to the axle, that is what stops it. it bolts to the axle so if you have to buy another disk you can without buying the whole axle.

Hi there,
Sounds scary! How steep is the hill?
Could you jack up the back end of the mower and check both wheels are driving? Maybe get it running slowly and get someone to carefully try and stop each wheel from turning with some sort of friction, eg a broom. If just the left wheel is driving you could get similar symptoms to what you describe. Some mowers have a key in the axle to wheel joint - if this is the problem then maybe yours is shorn.

1) there are also bushings which hold the axle assembly into the front cross member, take a look at those.
2) while you are at it, replace the front wheel bearings on both sides

I don't quite get you, if the belt is running but the rear axle is not turning then your transmission is shot. If the belt is running and the rear axle is spinning with no forward or backward motion, then someone took the back wheels off and put them back on without installing the keyways.

do you have the complete model number from the data tag on the mower frame? there are two typical systems for these machines, both require the belt to be tight and not slipping at the crank shaft, and the pulley on the trans-axle to not be slipping on its shaft, the older style trans axle uses a belt tensioner system to tighten the belt and turn the pulley, i.e. if the pulley turns then the axle should too. this can be checked by hand with the axle and belt removed. the second system is a clutch style axle that has a constantly tight belt and uses a small cable controlled lever on the transmission housing to engage a drive clutch inside the transaxle, if moving the lever forward doesn't cause the axle to turn as the pulley and shaft are turning the clutch mechanism is usually toast. with both of these systems one should also note whether the axle is turning inside the wheels when they are on the ground, the over running clutch sprags inside the drive gears could be stuck causing the wheels to turn without resistance applied, but stall when in contact with the ground.

while inspecting the trans axle note any wobble or free play in the axles or input shaft, this will indicate a worn case or bearing, resulting in a slipping gear in the trans axle.

Clutch


It does sound like a clutch, but deserves to be more thouroughly checked out, Does the clutch pedal feel normal? is there a little free-travel at the top of the pedal stroke? do you see oil dripping under the car?
Clutches usually go out slowly, they start to slip under heavey load first, then gradually slip even under light loads in low gears. If an axle was loose, it could have spun in it's hub, with the hood open ans an observerstanding beside the car looking down at the axles, slowly let the clutch out (engine running, in reverse gear, ) being careful not to hit your assistant, if the axles turn- one of them, but the wheel doesn't this is your problem. If the axles don't turn with the clutch out, and engine still revs, well it's time for a clutch or transmission, Good luck, hoe this helps

How to test 4wd actuater for 90 chevy pick up


The 4x4 system on an 88-98 full size gmtruck is controlled electronically except the shifting of thetransfer case which is done with a lever. When the transfer case isshifted into a 4x4 gear a switch in the upper driver side of thetransfer case is closed this sends power to the front axle actuatorwhich engages the front wheels to the front axle. A sensor is alsolocated on the front axle which is closed when the actuator shiftsthe axle into gear.

The first thing to check is the 4x4fuse if it is bad replace it.
Next check the switch on the transfercase connect a continuity tester to the switch and shift the transfercase into 4x4 the stitch should close, if it dose not replace it ifthe switch is functioning properly replace actuator on front axle

Mtd snow blower,8hp 2 stage, 1995, Problem: oil leaking on axles, and on casing wear axle come out.wheel stop turning , no gear selection. could you direct me ???


The oil leak normaly would make the 'friction disc' inside the frame slip so as to not drive the axle.
Locate the oil leak
#1 engine crankshaft seal
#2 engine crankcase cover gasket
#3 engine overfull so that the excess oil is coming out of the crankcase breather tube and running down inside the frame
