Lawn mower cranck but wont start…
ANSWER : Since you already checked for spark and air I would drain all the fuel out of it and check that fuel for water. Over time some lawn mowers end up with contaminated fuel. You can see the water sitting on the bottom of the fuel if you let it stand for a bit in a small plastic bowl.

Be sure to empty and dry out you fuel can as well. Especially if the mower stopped running right after a refuel. Which is a good sign your gas can is contaminated too.

It turned out to be a blocked carby and the way to fix is as follows;- remove air filter- start mower (assuming it now starts)- place open hand over carby hole and then remove. The force of the spinning blades will **** through the blockage.You may need to prime it first.Hope that helps.

How do u remove the tire off a rear rotiller – Troy Bilt Mtd Tiller Wheel Tire 480×4008
ANSWER : Remove the pin that secures the wheel to the axle and remove the wheel. Sometimes the wheel will become rusted to the axle and can not be removed. Its best to leave it be. Attempting to beat the wheel off the axle runs the risk of causing internal damage to the transmission. Once the wheel is off, remove the valve and release the air then using your tire tools remove the tire.
