Toro 20016/SN 220422054 front drive assembly
I received this Toro minus all hardware(including the missing pinion gears) from the pinion gear out to the wheel. I got on Partstree,com and thought I had all the parts I needed. It seems to me that when I get the front axle together, there is nothing in place to keep the pinion gear from engaging when the front axle is engaged. It looks like the pinion gear spins freely - nothing to the attach the gear to spin the drive wheel. I noticed a slot (maybe a key slot) in the front drive axle. I think that all the washers are in place preceeding the pinion gear (I might be wrong). Is there something that goes in that slot that attaches to the pinion gear to drive the wheels? Appreciate any ideas.
