Craftsman 18HP riding mower cannot remove wheels
I have a 10-15 year old craftsman mower. I cannot remove the rear wheels. They have a square key. The manual says simpley remove the retainer ring and remove the wheel. I tried heating them up , I tried banging with 2x4, I tried using anti rust solution. I even tried an impact hammer. Nothing. The problem is the wheel is a bit dented and they are losing air. Any thoughts? I either get the wheels off or chuck the mower. Its old but still some life left, Many thanks.
