Question about Poulan "Poulan" Push Mower
How do you replace a shear pin? I hit a metal
culvert with the balde. Killed the mower dead. Won't
First and foremost check to see if the crankshaft was bent when you hit the culvert. Remove the spark plug, Tilt the mower on its side at a 45 degree angle and while someone slowly pulls the starter rope see if the shaft where the blade attachs wobbles. If it does then you will need to replace the crankshaft (which can be expensive in some models). If it isn't bent, then the shroud that covers the flywheel is removed along with the other parts in that area and a flywheel "knocker" is used to remove the flywheel. At this point the old key is visible and you can see if it is sheered or not, If it is, then reverse the directions just followed after replacing the flywheel key. Chances are 99% it isn't the key, but the crankshaft.
