Rotary cutter shakes

I have an JD MX7 rotary cutter and i hit a rock, Now the cutter shakes. I checked the blades and they don't seem to be bent or in very bad shape other than some pretty good nicks in the blades.The blade pan now wobbles, could the blade pan or the shaft be bent? Which is more likely? How can I check?

My JD JS35 mower hit a stump and instantaneously stopped. It won't start. Occasionally it will fire once. What might be wrong?

Hi, it has most likely sheared the flywheel key and thrown the timing out. Also check that it has not bent the blade or crankshaft. Regards Phil.

The timing is key holding flywheel in place for timing. If you hit something, probably sheared or bent the key. Go to YOUTUBE, and on the line type in remove flywheel 6.25hp
