SOURCE: Mixing Arm Doesn't Turn

As long as it makes the ice cream, it doesn't matter which one turns. If it's not making the ice cream, call Cuisinart, as both the lid and the mixing arm can be replaced.

SOURCE: Need pitman arm replaced and idler arm replaced

The idler isn't bad, Remove cotter pin going through the nut, take off nut, you need a seperator tool to pull apart the arm from the center link, once that is done, remove the two bolts holding it to the frame, remove arm, installation is just reverse.
The pitman arm is a little more to it. Do the same, remove cotter pin, take off nut, and seperate it from the rod, now there is big nut holding it on to the bottom of the steering box, take that nut off (some are a real pain), you will need a pitman arm puller to get it off. Note the position of the arm, need to put new one in same place, pull it off slow, sometimes seals will come with it, put seals back in same way, if they come out. Put some grease on splined shaft, tap new arm on until you can get nut on, tighten up with nut. Hopefully you have any problems. Good luck.

An idler arm is a steering component found on vehicles without rack and pinion steering. Your referring to an idler pulley. To replace: remove the belt, remove the bolt from the center of the pulley, replace the pulley and reinstall the belt.

SOURCE: replace idler arm/pitman arm

Don't worry it is not too hard if you keep at. One "special tool" that you will need is a ball joint separator to separate the ball joint on the idler arm from the steering. When changing make sure to compare your replacement parts with the original and if necessary make a diagram of how things go together. On the bottom, there is a castle nut and a cotter pin. Remove the pin and loosen the nut then use the ball joint separator to remove the idler arm. (This is the hardest part of the job.) Then remove the remaining bolts and take the part off. Before putting the new idler arm make sure that you put the new grease fitting on it (and go ahead and squirt a little grease in it even though it already has some) and in between the new ball joint and the steering there should be a plastic bearing that slips into place. It's a pretty straight forward job and once you take a good look at it you will see what all needs to be done. Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Goodluck!

SOURCE: repair steering linkage

You'll have to rent or borrow a pickle fork and a pitman arm puller. There is more than one size of pickle fork so specify for tie rod ends. You can buy them too, about $100 for the pair and they are not vehicle specific.
Jack and block up your front end so the wheels are clear. Take the nut off the tie rod end and wedge the pickle fork between the tie rod and the drag link, rap with a hammer until it separates. Loosen the bolt on the collar and unscrew the tie rod end. Count the turns when you remove it and screw the new one in the same number of turns.Fit it into the drag link and tighten the collar and the new nut.
Take the nut off the idler arm and use the pickle fork to separate it from the drag link. Unbolt the idler arm from the frame. The new one goes on in the reverse.
You'll probably need an adjustable wrench to remove the nut from the pitman arm,it's bigger than most wrench sets. Separate it from the drag link first. Slide the puller on and tighten it up. Once it starts to turn hard, give the bolt on the puller a rap with the hammer and tighten some more. Repeat until the arm comes off. Slip the new one on and tighten.
Don't be shy when you tighten these parts because if there is play, the holes in the drag link will oval out and you will have to replace it too. Don,t use a pickle fork on the pitman arm or you will have to replace the seal in the bottom of the steering box. Hope this helps.

Mower starts, but won't move forward. I found torn belt underneath. I'm assuming this is a drive belt (are there two--one for each wheel). How do I change it out. (Best way to lift a zero turn?).


First, wedge something in front of the front wheels (when you lift the back, there's no brake action). Get the jack from your car and position it to lift the rear of the mower chassis. Jack it up then put blocks under the rear wheels - you may be able to do both at once, or you may have to alternate - then lower onto the blocks. Get enough space. You'll have to take off the mower belt and remove the PTO clutch anchor (two bolts) and may have to take off the wires connected to the PTO clutch (connector may be above the chassis). Then pull off the spring that tightens the idler arm, remove the old belt (if it's still there) and install the new one. Refasten the spring to tighten the idler, replace the anchor and mower belt, and mow away. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.

Check for alignment of all the pulleys--esp the idler arm. Probably enough out of alignment to "work" the belt off----possibly bent?
