Q:

B & D M100 mower

A:

I did some research on the M100 but was not able to find information on adjusting the back wheels. Your expert will be able to help answer your question. It may take two business days for your expert to reply. I do hope that everything works out on the mower.

They may just be rusted if the mower is old as you say. spray the adjusters with wd-40 or any lube type spray and let it soak in a while and try the adjusters again. I don't see many mowers like that so this is just a guess. maybe Wade has some info on this type or seen it before and will reply to this post.

Not sure if my reply went thru or not, so I'll try again. Thank you Marc and TC for responding. I found a parts explosion on the B & D website but no instructions. Still need some directions on what to do. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the mower. Unfortunately the manual is no longer available. This does sound like the adjusters have gotten rusted. Spray some WD-40 or some rust buster on the adjusters and let them soak for awhile. I hope this will help you. If you would like to have a technician check and make this adjustment, I'm listing a site you can access, for the nearest repair center. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services. I hope this will help you.

Q:

Lawn tractor starter is cranking, but the drive gear does not engage with the flywheel.

A:

The tractor not starting can be an inconvenience and keep you from getting the lawn mowed. I did some research and I was able to find two links that will provide you with some good information. I hope this helps while you wait for your expert response.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the starter. I suspect the gear on the starter is stuck in the down position. I recommend holding the bottom part of the starter with one hand and rotate the starter gear. The starter gear should ride up the helix to engage the flywheel. Once you see that the gear moves on the helix clean it with brake cleaner. This will flush out any dirt keeping it from working. After you have it cleaned, check the operation. If it still will not engage the flywheel, check the battery. If the cables on the battery are connected backwards the starter runs backwards. This will keep the gear from popping up when engaged. It will also cause a problem with the charging system.

I hope this is helpful. Please reply below with more details if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

todd, I will be happy to assist you. In the details, you did not indicate if the starter turned backwards, when it was checked At O'Reilly Auto Parts. If the starter is turning backwards and you are sure the battery is connected correctly, I recommend replacing the starter. I have to say I have never seen a starter turn backwards when connected correctly. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.
