In addition to lubrication problems, the plastic pinion gears can wear down or deform. This can cuase them not to engage, even if well-lubed.
I found some replacements at http://www.reelin.com. The parts number for the pinion gear is 30737-2, 30737-3 (left and right) for the Scotts Classic.
You can find the owner's manual, with part numbers, here:

Time to drain and replace the fluid. The gear lube does not last long in these rear differentials. Use Valvoline 85-140 weight semi-synthetic. It will slow or even stop the leak and prevent future wear. Only replace the seals if the leak gets bad. Hint: the fill plug is 3/8" socket wrench, the drain is 3/4" socket wrench. Attach a short length of vinyl tubing to bottle to fill the differential.

The last time I had a Honda mower in my repair shop I noticed that Honda doesnt do individual parts on its transmissions for mowers OR tillers.
You can fix this mower...but the transaxles are a bit expensive. Honda mowers do tend to be worth it though.
If the axle broke cleanly maybe someone would weld it back together?
I mean, the wheels dont turn that fast that balance would be an issue right? And I am sure the axle metal is cold rolled steel....which is to say it isnt thin cast material that would resist welding. If you take the transmission out of your mower and just take the parts to a good jobber maybe they would give it a try for 10-20 bucks? Dont expect a guarantee...but, for 20 bucks most shops wont even pick up a mower let alone try to fix it.
If this gives you another couple of years of service that would give you time to consider a replacement mower when the unit needs service again.
Good luck and be careful!

It a sealed unit. No service needed. They said call service provider. You tear it apart, if you want. Remove axle from mower. The case unbolt in two pieces>

SOURCE: Vibration at 70 MPH.
Warped or out-of balance brake rotor? Also keep in mind that loose rear differential trailing arms that allow the rear differential to squirm around can also cause steering wheel shake.
