I likewise am having a problem with my Sears tractor (Model No. 917.273021) with transaxle Model No. 222-3010L -- it suddenly stopped moving. I installed a new drive belt, checked operation of the bypass valve, checked the brake, and purged the transaxle -- to no avail. Although I do not see any sign of oil leakage from the transaxle, you suggested to make sure the oil level was OK. I have not checked the oil level because I do not see where to do so -- I do not see the pipe plug on the right side of the transaxle -- which is why I was hoping that Mark T's images (provided elsewhere in this thread) might actually show where it is located -- do you have a better image that shows where this plug is located (I do not see it listed in the parts list of the owners manual)? Also, should I change the transaxle oil filter? Thanks.

Thanks, Mark. Yes, I now can enlarge the image and read it. However, strangely - it will not allow me to print the entire image - is the image available as a pdf file? Thanks again.

I am sorry about the printability. We have to build these images in order to post them. The site only allows 3 PDF files. If I break them up it makes it hard to post them all. If you have a picture problem you should be able to crop and print what you need. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Mark

I found the plug and checked the oil -- looks ok. Onto another possibility -- I understand that another possible reason for the tractor not moving is that keys in the axles that drive the rear wheels might have sheared. I believe these keys are listed as Part No. 7070E. Have you heard of this happening and, if so, what would cause the key to shear? If one or both of the keys are sheared, how difficult a job is it to replace them? Thanks again.

A:

I am sorry you are still having a problem. It is unlikely that the axle key is sheared. I have seen them come out but never shear. To check the keys just set the parking brake. Then try to push the tractor. If one of the keys were missing, you would be able to push the tractor with the brakes on. To install a new key just remove the dust cap on the end of the axle. Then use a flat blade screwdriver to remove the clip on the axle. Next, remove the washer and push the tractor until the slot in the axle is aligned with the slot in the wheel. Once aligned, you can slide an axle key into the slot. After you have it pushed in, go ahead and put the unit back together. Please let me know what you find. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.
