Toro Personal Pace Recycler - Rear Gear Wheel Fell Off

I'm truly a noob who likes to tinker and I'm trying to fix my mower. Well as stated above while mowing the wheel started to wobble and was hanging off. After removing the wheel I noticed that the retaining ring was off so I tried to put it back on with the snap ring pliers to no avail. I believe that the ring was bent because one side would go into the groove but the other side was just a bit out of place. My grandson tried to remove the ring but it would not go over the gear pinion and he ended up breaking one side. At that point we just pulled it off and will use it for size reference. How or do I need to remove the pinion in order to put a new snap/retaining ring back on? Is there something that I can use as an alternative that would be easier to put on?

Thank you for you help in advance.

Sorry for the omission:

Toro GTS 6.75hp 22 rear drive
Model 20031
Serial No. 240031001

Also I didn't mention that I purchased this second hand and took a picture of a wire that was disconnected when I purchased it. What is it for?

All you should need to do is replace the E-Clip part number 65-2720:



The wiring is for the electric starter.

Thumbs up

Thank you for your quick response. The E-Clip is just what I need.

Is the dangling electric starter wiring something that was possibly installed and then disconnected or an option? If I take the cover off the mower would there be a corresponding plug in wire?

I believe that you are missing most of the starter parts. Would need a wider picture.

Is an E-clip and a Snap/Retaining Clip interchangeable? The E clip seems to have a little tab that goes into a slot. Are you suggesting this as an alternative? Please don't take offense at my question I'm only asking because I'm trying to learn.

OK I missunderstood where this came apart. You do need a snap ring part number 32151-36

Thank you. Now for the second part.... There is no way to get that snap ring on without taking off the pinion is there?

Yes you must remove the pinion. My records show that it is a 1" snap ring.

Is there a tool to take the e clip off the pinion or can it just safely be pried off. I have another little quirk with this same mower but I will open another thread.
