It says on the back of the can not to use it on those tires.
Um... because they have an engine like your car that has moving parts and cylinders... only significantly smaller?
Changing a small lawn mowers tires will require you to firstpurchase new tires. Then loosen the bolts on the old tires. You canthen take off the tires. Put on the new tires an…d replace thebolts.
Mounting and dismounting a lawn tractor tire can go easy or be a real PIA. Gather two very large flat screwdrivers, or better yet, a pry bar. Place the tire on the rim at angl…e so that one side drops over the rim. Place a screwdriver on one side between the tire and rim to stop the tire from coming of as you begin working the tire on with the second tool. Simply use the pry bar and work your way around the tire. The closer you get to completion, the more difficult it will be to pry the tire over the rim. You may need a third pry tool to place between the tire and rim on both sides as you work the tire on. You can also use a hammer to assist, with a tool on opposite sides to hold the tire from coming back off, then use the hammer and hit the bead of the tire to work it on while moving the holding tool forward as you progress. Hint: Use dish washing liquid to liberally lubricate the tire and rim around the bead. This will dramatically reduce the effort to get the tire on. Once you have done it a couple times, you will find it to be a pretty simple task...most of the time.
Most small diameter tires are mounted on wheels that have a innerand outer halves that are bolted together. Disassemble the 2 halvesby taking the bolts off. removing the half …from the tire thatdoesn't have the valve stem first. The tire might be stuck on therim but some gentle persuation should make it come off. A littlesoapy water might help. Remove the second half working the tube outof the stem hole in the wheel. Clean the rust and dirt off of the surface that the tube restsagainst with a wire brush and sandpaper. paint it if necessary withsome rust resistant paint. allow to dry thoroughly. Inspect theinside of the tire for object that caused the puncture. Repair orreplace the tube. Reassemble in reverse order making sure you don'tpinch the tube between the 2 halves of the wheel. You could reusethe bolts but I suggest replacing them with new for the low cost.inflate to suggested pressure and remount to the mower.
well it all deepens how broken it is if its really broken you will have to get a new one but if they is something wrong with the blade try to get a old dust pan brush and turn… the lawn mower over and give it a brush or buy a new blade on the internet or on ebay
clutch for (your model mower) on eBay or other site that sells mower parts
Most common cause of lopeing (revving up and down) is a dirty air filter.
If it is a push mower there are only a couple things that will cause the mower to smoke. 1) The rings are worn and need replaced. This lets oil seep past the rings and burns …the oil in the cylinder. This will cause a white smoke. (this is probably the most common cause for engines smoking) 2) The carburetor is putting too much gas in the engine. This will cause the engine to run rich and make a black smoke. 3) There is an external oil or gas leak that is leaking onto the motor and burning from the heat of the engine. If it is a riding mower there are many more things that could cause it to smoke.
Magnets are used in the flywheel to produce the ignition. Often they are imbedded and tied to iron cores.
One number is the overall tire height, one is tire width and the other is the inside diameter.
Take it to Sears.
As long as the rims are the same size and they are not to wide yes.
you may be able to recharge one, there are some gimmics out there but i doubt they work, if it won't hold a charge replace it, they aren't expensive 20-40 dollars
Fix a flat, you can get it at any dollar general store or Wal-mart.
You probably could if it were the only option but the valve stem/sensor may have to be replaced.
