Customer Question

We have a Toro 22" high wheel variable speed mower. Model #20016 6.5 HP
Problem - Front wheels do not spin freely when wheel mower is shut off.
We have replaced - Trans, bushings, clips, wheels, belt, cable
(didn't change drive gears as appear to be good).
Problem still exist.
Any solutions?

Hello,are the springs and keys installed in the new drive shaft? If yes did you inspect the keys for wear? Did you lube the pinions and make sure they lock one direction and turn the shaft and spin free the other?
