Creative Repair, Zero Cost Is Important These Days!

The end of the rectangular PTO shaft on the 24G was starting to wobble, it was worn away.

I guess twenty some years is all you can ask?

I was going to order a new piece of bar, and weld it on. Then I thought,

"Why not just "reverse" the shaft?"

So I cut the shaft, turned it around, and welded it back.

It has been a year since the repair, no wobble, !! WOOT!! :bananapow

Come on you cheapo's show some zero cost repairs!! :dunno:

The throttle control on the 18G wasn't staying up into the full position it would work its way to mid low throttle in a few seconds of running. I took a cotter pin and stuck it down between where a washer was supposed to be. Has worked fine ever since.

Well, we will let you slide on the cost of the cotter pin, that can be a little pricey!! :ROF

Great save!! We need a pic, if you ever take it apart! :fing32:
LOL You really want to see what I done'd?!?! Heck all I'd have to do is pop the hood and snap a pic! All mtf GRAVELY'ers would be going out to their garages to see what it's supposed to look like!
The cost is free! At my Local Gravely dealer he has a box of cotter pins that are junk to them...the dealer is 7 miles from my house and I was on my way to get a belt!
