    I am wondering if anybody know how to repace the bushing for the front tires. The tires are touching the deck and I was informed that I need to repace the bushes... what tool can I use to get them out.??
    Thanks

    You can use any type blunt end drift punch, Remove the caster and insert the drift at a angle to catch the inside edge of the other bushing and hit a couple times then move the drift to the opposite side and hit a couple times and keep going back and forth until it comes out. Do the same to the other until it comes out, I install the new ones with a large 1/2 drive socket so not to damage the flange or bur the inside hole where the fork wont go back in.

    I installed the new bushings but the fork wont go back in. I think the store gave me the wrong part, however they stated that it will take some time to get the fork back in the first time... ??

    Were these brass or plastic nylon type ? And you did install them with a socket correct ? Did you try the new ones on the fork before installing ?

    Sorry for all the questions but the more dirt the better.

    They are brass.
    I did intall them correct.
    No, I did not try them before I intall them. (my bad) I called the lawn parts and they asked me to bring them tomorrow to see what it's the problem... I'll let you know what happen, they stated that they gave me the right part... let's see. Thank you.
