I would first pull off the recoil assembly and clean out the assembly. There should be something in the recoil assembly that should pop out and engage the motor when pulled. Lube/flush that with some light spray lube.

The first thing I would do is to spray the screws with a penetrating oil like PB Blaster. Let it set a while and try again.

How old is the fuel in the tank and also look into the tank for water from condensation. If the gas is older than 2 months drain the tank and the carb bowel.

Remove the 5/16" allen cap screw on the end of the shaft. The knife assembly slides onto the crankshaft and is keyed with a woodruff key. Soak the shaft in pentrating oil overnight and try to slide it off or use more persuasive measures like tapping or a slide hammer. You'll see a big nut it's a LH thread so to remove it turn it CCW. The rest is straight forward. I can send you the owners manual if you provide an email address. It illustrates the process in detail. Ronald

Hi, check out "you tube " type in what you have put above you basically
have to get the right bolt and where you have taken the centre bolt out you put a longer bolt in and bottom it out screwing it in with some vibration the wheel pops off. See video.

check all switches - wiring - and electric solonoids in that particular function, look closely anywhere the harness flexes in normal operation and also where anything may have been in contact with the wiring. there may be safety limit switches check them as well. quite often it's something simple. a wiring/hyd. scamatic would make things easier if you have a model&serial# you might be able to download on line

There is usually 1 to 3 screws that loosen and the coil moves in and out. You set it with a feeler gauge. Some of them have to be set on both sides. Before trying to start slowly turn the engine over by hand to ensure nothing is hitting

tapers break easily when the taper is distorted momentarily

leave the bolt in place unscrewed about 1/8 inch

place a bearing puller under the boss and apply pressure to the head of the bolt

using to heavy hammers , place the head on one side of the boss and hit hard on the other side of the boss

this will release the taper and it will jump to the head of the bolt

remove the bolt

If there is a key in the taper as well then the problem becomes different as you may have to apply heat to the boss to distort the taper and break the rust bond on the key

make sure that the truck is in the ready to move configuration--
bucket properly stowed booms in etc as there may be micro switches that will not allow pressure to return from the cylinders until this is all achieved
The system has safety devices that will not allow operation until it is properly leveled or will not allow stabilizer operation until the machine has been properly made ready for travel
read your operators hand book and safety instructions
