Removing rear tire on 1990 JD 170


Im am replacing disc brake pads and need to remove the right rear tire for easier access.

There are no bolts around the rim - just a small plastic cap in the center of the rim - there is a snap ring under the cap.

The rim extends 4 - 5 inches on the back side to the transaxle housing with no sign of a through bolt or key that I can see.

Just want to know what I am in for before starting what should be a simple R & R.

Thanks,
Pete

The rims on a spline if I remember right.
Remove the snap ring and just pull it off.
Sometimes there stuck and a few taps with a rubber hammer should get it loose.

The snap-ring is what holds the hub on the shaft. Remove it, and keep track of how the washers/bushings come off. The shaft will either be splined, or keyed. A 1990 model is most likely keyed.

You simply pull the hub off the shaft. Because of dirt and/or rust, it could be a bugger to get off. PB Blaster might become a good friend.
