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.

Pull Cord Stops...


could be valve needs set. if it isn't opening at the right time it wont release compression for it to start. it may be the shear key in the flywheel has sheared if you have hit something like a big rock or log or something causing it to die suddenly.

Honda 125 innova kick start problem


Picture a lawnmower. Pull the starter cable with the lawnmower on its side. Envision the movement being the same on the kick start. Removal of the cylinder housing requires removal of the starter arm. Many scenarios the arm connects to a gear with a bolt. Recommend bike shop. So as not to damage gear.

Lawnmower stored for a year tipped up and all oil leaked out -- Won't start now.


You have most likely gotten oil on the coil, You need to remove the pull start assembly and you will see the coil/flywheel, check for any oil contamination which you can clean up with brake/carb cleaner.

I Have a push mower and hit a rock and finished the lawn hearing the lawnmower blade hit underneath a couple of times. When the mower went down slope the blade started really hitting the side. The next...


hi there nchernuka

have you checked that the engine to chassis bolts are still tight and the mounts are ok,

have you checked that you havn't bent the pto shaft ( this will be evident if you remove the blade carrier and blades, then the plug and pull the gine over - check wobble ), check that blade carrier is in good condition and the pto woodruff key is ok and the carrier centre pto bolt is tight

check that anything that is under the mower body is still tightly attached and is not getting swung into the path off the blades - ie catcher tounge - metal body brackets etc

i would also suggest you check the feather timming key in the flywheel too especially if it kicks back when you try to start it

cheers have a look

hope it helps pauly46

THERE IS A BAD OIL LEAK COMING FROM SOMEWHERE, YESTERDAY ON THE INTERSTATE WE HEARD A POP LIKE WE HIT A ROCK OR SOMETHING THEN A SIZZLE AND WHEN WE STOPPED ALOT OF SMOKE. WHAT COULD THIS BE?


if you hit a rock, maybe your oil pan.
inspect the car from below.
if you cannot find it, use a degreaser and clean the engine compartment, then, put some powder on the engine and start the engine. the leak should show up.
check your oil level as well, if you drop a lot, you may need more oil to start your car safely.

How do I drain the oil from my push mower? I don't see a drain plug. I have only had lawnmowers that you mix the oil in the gas in the past. Do I have to turn the whole lawnmower over????


Make sure no gas is in unit and yep turn the whole thing over. Sucks I know but they started doing that few years ago. Don't know why really.

Can't start it up - no instructions


Steps
  1. Make sure you have enough motor oil in your mower. Usually there is a cap on top of the mower body, smaller than the gas cap, that says "oil" or something similar. The cap will probably have an oil gauge attached, so check the oil as you would in a car, that is, judge the level of oil on the gauge against the depth of the reservoir (the length of the gauge).
  2. Make sure you have enough gasoline. There should be a clearly labeled cap on the gas tank. If you open it, you should be able to look down into the tank and see the approximate level. Add more (preferably using a funnel) if needed.
  3. Locate the prime button, usually red or black, a squishy button somewhere on the mower's body. Push it between 3 and 8 times in order to force the gasoline into the lines.
  4. You may need to pull and hold a starting lever (a safety feature), or the lawnmower will not start no matter what you do.
  5. Brace your arm holding the starting lever, and pull upward on the pull cord, which you should find on top of the mower body. You may have to do this several times before the motor starts up.
  6. If you are still unable to get your mower started, try the lawnmower inspection and troubleshooting steps at http://www.wikihow.com/Repair-a-Lawnmower.
