Part Identification


LAWNBOY MOWER PART

Please, I need to identify exactly this part, in order to be able to order it from a supplier.
I believe it is a little metal key that holds the gear on a shaft, of a Comercial Lawnboy self propelled mower. There are to of these keys on the gear system. Of is right, and the other one is left. Meaning the pointed part is oriented either left or right.
I hope. I am not confusing everybody with my explanation.
Your assistance with this request is greatly appreciated.
I am attaching a photo of the mentioned “key”.

Well you confused me . There are a few different types of 'keys' to spline a gear to a shaft. Parallel (square), woodruff (half moon) and tapered. The only one that I have seen with a tab is a tapered key.

Hard to tell from the pict. is it broken/bent or is it supposed to loo that way? it almost looks like some kind of pawl, made to keep something (gear or flywheel?) from turning in the wrong direction.

Go here https://lookup3.toro.com/partdex/ind...Caller=lawnboy
enter the model # and see if you can find it. if not just take it and your model/serial info to your local Lawn Boy dealer or small engine shop

Thanks guys for your prompt response. That is the whole key,it is not broken.
Two of those keys fits on each side of a gear on a shaft that holds the self propelled tire. I am going to take it to a Lawnboy repair center,and ask them to help me out. The Lawnmower is about 10 years old and Lawnboy does not carry parts for that model anymore. I will try eBay to see,if somebody might have something like that.

Thanks again!

I have more information on the subject part!

IT IS A ROCKING KEY
Steel
Forged




Rocks in the drive shaft and drive shaft gear to lock the key in places so the gears begin to turn. Then when the mower is pulled in reverse it rocks the other way and disengages the gears.

It is number 14 in the attached drawing!
