Ouch that's not good. How did you do it? Too much speed? torque?

I did that once it hurt I slide forward into the steering wheel OUCH . I thought my trans was screwed took it apart and the snap ring holding the gear to the pinion broke, and the pinion gear got stuck under the rest of the gears but nothing else was broken. So I got another snap ring and put the gear back on the pinion inspected everything seemed ok so I put it back in and im still running it I couldnt believe nothiing else was broken . You may or may not be able to fix yours but pull it apart and see hey its allready broken.

Thats a bummer. It usually cheaper to buy a whole nother mower for parts then to buy just a trans. If its really cold, I will let mine warm up by letting it run about half throttle in neutral with the clutch engaged. Just to get things movin

I just use a standard digital camera. Bought it about a year ago for $40. Its not the best but it could be worse.
