Troy Bilt 2410 Wheel Removal - Rusted

Hi All,


Just finishing up a project on my 2410. Got all the maintenance done from the previous owner. Last thing I need to do that I can't, is get off these wheels so I can grease the shafts. If a tire goes flat I'm screwed! The wheels must be rusted on the shaft and I can't get them to budge. Tried heating the axle with a propane torch, maybe couldn't get it hot enough? Sprayed penetrating oil down there as well.


Any other recommendations on getting these fussy wheels off the axle?

Very doubtful propane will do it. At very minimum MAPP gas and better yet find someone with oxy-acetlyne torch. Once off, sand inside hub and the axle shaft. Apply generous coat of never Seize or lithium grease. While we're on this subject remember to grease auger shafts.
I hope this helps.
Be sure to confine the heat to just the wheel hub and not the axle.

Guess I better find someone with MAPP gas and/or an acetylene torch! I've read some other forums that suggest the use of a 50/50 mix of ATF and Acetone works pretty well as a penetrating oil. I need to flip this up on end and let that soak into the hub for a day or so...............but gonna wait till it warms up a bit. Too darn cold to be working in an unheated garage right now!

I did You Tube, couldn't find anything specific to my particular wheel, but the principle is the same. I just think mine is so rusted on there I'm going to have a **** of a time trying to get it off.........

are you sure they are rusted? i know those ones are sometimes a pain to get off. sometimes you can wiggle them. if you have an air chisel they sometimes work to knock wheels loose. not like you really have to get them too far before they will start spinning freely.

I would not use a torch and I have one.

I made a wheel puller just for this. I will post pictures over the next few days.

Thanks JLawrence! I don't have any pullers, so I'm curious if that would work too. I was going to try MAPP gas as someone else suggested. I've been using the propane just doesn't seem to be getting it hot enough to break it off the axle. I'm pretty sure its rusted. There doesn't look like there is anything else holding it on. I already removed the bolt and washer, that seems to be it. See attached parts diagram.

sometimes the require some wiggling and pulling. if you got a rubber hammer you might be able to knock the rim loose or could try a block of wood and hammer. that rim doesn't look like it is rusted on there too bad if it is. those ones can just be a slight pain because of the design.

Make a mix of synthetic oil, automatic transmission fluid, and alcohol in a squirt bottle. Tilt the snowblower on it's side, not much, just slightly, you only need a 2x4 or preferably a 6x6, you can do a complete tilt, look for exiting gas or oil, squirt some mix down the axle, notice when it's coming out the other side, rotate the wheel, squirt some more; then flip the snowblower to the other side and do the same. This will be a precursor to removal. When the wheel is removed, wire brush, then sand the axle, coat with synthetic grease or Never-Seize. You'll never have to touch it again.
