    You may have to treat the assembly the way tire guys do a big truck tire in the field, by prying the flat tire off the rim. If you do, use a flat-bladed crowbar. That will allow you to at least get tthe tire off the rim. Try that and post back as I don't know what the wheel/axle configuration is on those older units.Toro has some diagrams on the net. I found this, but don't know if it will help.

SOURCE: how to remove and replace rear wheel tire on my

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.

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.

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!

im assuming you dont here any grinding, start by tightening the cable ( loosen the cable mounting bolt slide the cable towards the engine, make sure you leave some play in the cable so its doesnt engage constantly and re-tighten ) this is most likely your issue however if you re-test and get grinding you either need new drive gears and wheels, new transmission or possibly both, you said it does something just not powerfully this pretty much rules out your belt, highly doubtful its that worn out and if it came off of a pulley it would do literally nothing, however if you tighten it and the drive is almost normal but still weak you do have a worn drive belt

The front tires on my Toro keep loosing air and are very often flat. What can I do to solve this problem?

They are most likely loosing air at the seal at the rims. That happened to me. I bought some inner tubes and problem solved.

My toro mower won't start. new air filter, new spark plug, etc. could it just be stale gas?

The Toros have a Tecumseh engine and are famous for this. I'd suggest you do a thorough cleaning of the carburetor, but there is a little known secret that I've learned about this particular carb. Pull the bolt from the bottom of the float bowl on the carb (1/2 inch wrench; the "main jet"). Be sure that all the little holes in that jet are clean and you can stick a wire thru them. There is a microscopic hole at the very top of the threads on that brass bolt that often gets clogged and your mower will not start. I use the wire from the needle valve inside the carburetor to stick thru it, as it's about the only thing that'll fit. (note: if you have 50 year old eyes like me, you can't even see this hole w/out specs). Hope this helps and best of luck to you. (also, be sure you put the float bowl back on the right way; there's a bevel in the back that needs to go toward the hinge in the float or the float won't work. Learned that one the hard way as well. )
