General Question..

I have a Toro 22164 PT21 Trim mower. I am trying to order a 'key-rocking' part for the rear axle. 66-6040LH or 66-6050RH.

My question is how do I correctly determine the left or right side of the machine? If I am standing in front of the machine (facing it) does that determine the left and right sides?

Please take a look at the attached pic. I am in need of part 5 OR 6. The picture actually is on the same side that I am having to replace on.

Usually, left and right on a lawn mower is oriented just like a car, from the operating position (standing to the rear of the mower).

This is what I thought as well. So the picture above would be of the 'left' side of the mower.

Although when speaking to a parts supplier, which I wont name, they are telling me that they consider this picture to be of the 'right' side of the mower. the part that I require is specific to either 'left' or 'right' sides.

I cant relate back to my existing parts because they are too worn.

or to put it even simpler

left and right is always determined by you sitting in the drivers seat facing forward

You can only learn if you ask the question, so there are no dumb questions.
