I am trying to remove the sidewheels on my little Suffolk push mower.
On other mowers, the wheels have been bolted on, or held by a retaining cap and split pin through the axle.
This appears to have the cap, but no pin... it looks as if the axle is swaged over the cap after assembly in the factory (see photo). The cap can't be prised off. The only detail on the other side of the wheel is a square-headed grubscrew, presumably for oiling.
Could anyone point me in the right direction?
In any case the reason for wheel removal is so that I can spin the reel backwards for sharpening. I have done this before by jerry-rigging a drill to the reel shaft. If this isn't possible, is there another method that won't take all afternoon?
Thanks in advance
