If you bent the blade most likely you bent the crankshaft too.
Remove the spark plug and pull the rope and remove excess oil from the spark plug hole
check the spark plug for spark if you have none then a flywheel key is sheered a more in depth fix.
If you get it started you may notice a whole lota vibration due to a bent crank shaft or maybe not?

Have a vibrations only when blade is engaged


vibration when the blade is spinning is a sure sign that the blade is bent and out of balance , maybe you hit something solid in the yard ??? anyways blades need to be replaced / rebalanced) if you continue to use a out of balance blade then shaft seal on engine will wear out prematurely and leak motor oil leaks out

I have a constant vibration when running my poulan pro self propelled 22 inch cut lawn mower. any solutions to the problem......


My guess is that you have hit something pretty solid while mowing. You have either bent the blade, bent the crankshaft, or both. To check for a bent crankshaft, set the mower up on a table or tailgate where the handle is on the ground and the spark plug is pointed into the air. DISCONNECT THE SPARK PLUG !!! You don't want to risk starting it in this position. While a friend holds the engine brake lever closed, and pulls the rope, you need to watch the blade bolt. If the bolt spins without wobbling, just replace the blade. If the bolt wobbles, then the crankshaft is bent. A bent crankshaft can be straightened by a reputable shop. Not all shops are will to straighten crankshafts. It is not a cheap repair.
Good luck!

From what you describe it sounds like the line may be tangled, remove the rewind housing in order to inspect the line up close.

Bent Shaft???


Check that the blade securing bolt is secure. While you're there, have somone SLOWLY pull the starter rope. It will be obvious if anything is bent to the extent you describe.

If this machine has a blade clutch, engage blades while you do the pull test (DISCONNECT PLUG WIRE!!!!)

Oooh boy, I know you bent the shaft, but why it is blowing oil out the carb, I don't know if I would even bother with the blade, you could go buy the same mower, then you would have some parts. Unless you just bumped it hard enough to throw oil around in there, it might settle down, but it is a long shot. I hit a stump once and bent the crank, it was lights out for that mower. Hope this helps.

Riding mower will barely move


Sounds like it time for a tuneup. Air filter changed, Spark plugs replace and oil changed, plus sharpen the blades while you are at it.

I hit a rock and bent the blade on a yard machine. Replaced the blade and tried to start the mower, but the start rope doesn't come out all the way and recoils hard as I'm trying to pull it out.


I did the same exact thing over the weekend, try adjusting your new blade unscrew the main bolt to the blade about 1/2 turn that should get it spinning again, same exact thing happened to me. Good Luck
