Toro Select a pace

I have a Toro Select a Pace mower model 20022 1999 Serial number that has always been hard to pull backwards. It will release and roll easily if I jerk it hard on asphalt or concrete, but it just drags the right rear wheel in the grass. The left side driven wheel will release fine. The forward mowing drive works just fine too. Any Clues?

Sounds to me that it's just dirty from grass and debres and the key and spring inside the axle isn't working Properly. Take the wheel and drive gear off
as well as the key and spring,and clean with WD-40 or the like.

NOTE THE WAY THE DRIVE GEAR COMES OFF, AS TO NOT GET IT BACKWARDS UPON RE-ASSEMBLY.

Gear and Spring

Ill give it a shot! I bet those gears are still held in with a roll pin?

Thanks!

No roll pin, just a spring clip "E" type clip. Your unit does not have the spring and key, but rather a rocker type key that rotates up and into the gear to drive. There is probably some corrosion or build up on the key that is causing it to stick and not release.

With this type of drive system, you need to allow the unit to roll slightly forward so the keys will disengage the drive gears, before trying to pull it back. Once you release the self propel drive allow the unit to roll forward without the help of the self propel for an inch or two this should allow the drive key to release.

Best of luck....

With all the dirt that was on the outside of this mower, I have no doubt youre right about corrosion on the key. Im going after it.

Thanks!
