Arm part replace for wheel? MTD 30'

Posted by sonicwarrior Illinois (My Page) on

Have an MTD yard Machine 30" riding Mower

model 13AF560B3521628272

serial 1K256G60120

I need to replace a part..........It is the wheel rod part. An L shaped rod and the flat mounting plate has torqued and bent so as to make the link arm slip off from the end and the wheels toe in and do not align properly. The flat plate has a stress crack in it (at its 90 degree) so I figuring hammering it back straight won't last.
I also will need a drive belt as this one has a gouge and is a little loose, but still works.

I was driving and when making turns, the tire dug into soft dirt effectively stopping forward progress and cranking the wheel to twist and torque way far left and I believe this twisted, then cracked the metal.

My digital camera just died within the last 2 days or I would pic it and the MTD part site doesn't recognize the model #. I was told that Farm and Fleet would have the belt but would like to price to get the best buy.
Any info would help. Thanks guys! Rich

Go to Milaca Lawn and Garden's website and use their parts
lookup, it is easier to use.
Go to MTD and type in 13AF560, the last digits just
specify what store the mower was sold at, and can hamper
your looking up the parts list.

try the link below to get correct part numbers. Then Go to MTD parts webpage to order - or go to a dealer to order.

Caution ; this parts list covers multiple models - make sure you have the correct pages when getting the part numbers.
