I fought this problem with mine and still do on really cold days. It was a bad battery that caused the issue. I'll eventually put a car battery in one of these days. If your engine is like mine, a briggs OHV, these engines are hard starters anyway.

Find one that has small bolt posts. Some have both regular posts and threaded ones. One of the batteries in my truck has both.

Glad it didn't break the transaxle. You might need more bracing on that as it looks awfully spindly.

Definitely need some heavier reinforcement on the rear end. Youre lucky the support gave and not the casing.

Smoking? Maybe it was just hot. Is it pulley swapped? Might be worth looking at putting a vent on it.

I wouldn't be surprised if the stresses from the bent bracket caused enough distortion in the trans to cause the bushings to bind.

Stiffen her upa and try it again

Use angle bars for stiffness, and are you planning on bigger diameter wheels?
