Hello,

 

I recently gave my neighbor a Cub Cadet 1027 rider, sometimes called the "Bug"? He's trying to remove one of the rear/ drive wheels in order to replace a tire but is having a helluva time getting the wheel off. What we're wondering, is it possibly 'splined' onto the axle or is there a magic spell we need to chant to get it off.

Thanx for any help,    Pat   aka   flgudmusic

That has 2 flat spots on the axle and 2 matching ones on the rim to hold it in place.  They were put together dry so it most likely rusted together.  When I have to get a rim off a setup like that at work the magic spell is usually an oxy/acetylene torch and an abundance of 4 letter words plus a couple days to remove it.  If the tire is bad it's usually easier to just jack the tractor up and change it where it sits.  Hope this helps.                        Stewart

Just leave it on and change the tire on the wheel on the tractor. Don't beat it off the transmission will break

Put a tube in it while it's on the tractor.A good tube will last as long or longer than that little tractor will.

 

Hated my YardBug lol.Got it needing a drive belt.Put both drive belts on it and used it for 2 weeks then the drive cable broke.Replaced it with OEM cable.Was $68 for the cable btw.and mowed with it for 2 months then the carb decided to fill the block with gas and I forgot to check it before using it and it blew the connecting rod through the block.

 

Went and borrowed my neighbors skid loader for a couple minutes and made it fit in our small dumpster :rolling: :rolling:
