Nobody seems too worried Smile Cut the grass no problem today so I'm don't think it's too much to worry about.

If anything I would've thought the rod would bend before the crankshaft. But maybe not.

Rod would shatter before it bent.

If it were me I wouldn't run it like this, would make for excessive wear on the crank and rod. But if you're only mowing with it it'll prolly still run for a long time

Well i think I made it sound worse than it actually is. The knock has disappeared and the vibration is hardly noticeable. It's not shaking the whole mower to bits or anything close to that.

Mower still running well, had to do a weld repair to the right spindle a while back. The axle is made from really thin steel. Pretty hard to weld.

hunting is usally caused by the carb out of adjustment, try to set it back to factory to have a baseline and then do the fine adjustment

Well this happened...
Castle Garden 12.5/102 - Page 3 Img_2082
...while mowing. I previously welded this spindle to the axle but it broke again and twisted round. I tried to take the axle out but the big bolt in the middle will not shift. I'm not too sure whether I should cut the spindle off or just bend it back to shape and welding it in. I'm thinking the latter.

Yikes! That's not quite right looking, haha. Almost makes me think it wasn't welded that great from the factory.

I would bend it back, weld it up, then add some more metal to the area to make it stronger. Then do the other side with the added metal. If one side broke, then the other side isn't far behind.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking Prancstaman. To be fair the welding I had done previously was rubbish so it was only a matter of time before it broke again, only worse this time. I'll probably not get anything done on this until next Saturday.

It'd be kinda cool to see a homemade front axle on it. Probably not really neccessary for a grass cutter, but it'd be cool nonetheless. Haha. Then you could be sure she'd never break again.

Nope, just mowing on a hill. The axle is made from really thin steel and the original welds were only at the top and bottom, not all the way down, and didn't have very good penetration.

I don't think I'll be making a new front axle for this any time soon haha, got too many projects. I'm going to do what Prancstaman suggested, that should be adequate.
