Your best bet is to look on craigslist for someone selling a mower similar to yours with a bad motor. Buy it cheap and swap motors.
New chassis are available through your local dealer also. You will need model and serial numbers from your chassis.

The frame which holds in the engine and wheels has rusted out due to the air conditioning leaking fluid on it. Why was this design problem not communicated to Acura owners. It's very dangerous.

Air conditioning 'fluid' is a gas. If anything had leaks, it should have been fixed. Preventative maintenance is the key to keeping vehicles in good condition, especially one that is 13 years old. My Lexus is serviced every 7 months.

Looking to buy a 1968 VW beetle. Has some rust around the lights . But that is most major issue. What should I pay?

What you should pay depends entirely on the mileage, mechanical condition, body work condition and interior condition of the car.

Be very careful buying a car like that and having a professional mechanical and body work inspection done on it before you buy.

The rust around the headlights is very bad and there will likely be other bad rust in the vehicle you cannot see. It is important to get the car up on a hoist/lift so you can inspect the underside of the vehicle.

Just repairing the front fenders to remove the rust and repaint will be expensive to do properly so never under estimate how much you will need to spend to fix rust issues. There is bound to be other rust in the body work you have not found yet and, as mentioned, it is imperative to inspect the underside of the car thoroughly.

The body of the lawn mower is starting to rust and when you try to turn the lawn mower by lefting the front with your handle it rips more. Is there any way you can replace the body of the lawn mower<

I keep my eyes open for a mower that is junk suich as one the motor is shot and make sure it's about the same type as the one your changing and there are four bolts that you take out of the mower base that holds the motor in place take them out and undo the cables and replace the new base. Some times the handles are interchangable as well.

How to remove stuck blade bolt on MTD Mower model 449


First make sure that you are loosening the blade bolt (Are you turning it in the right direction?) Turn the mower on it's side and lodge a piece of wood between the blade and the body of the machine and really crank on that wrench. The blade bolt is probably rusted in the crankshaft.

I have a 18.5 H P that won't shut off when turn

Lift the hood of your mower and look for the wire that goes from your ignition switch to the mower body. This is your ground wire . See that the bolt to body is thight, no rust under the bolt, the wire is not cutor broken away. Also check the connector at the ignition switch, there could be rust at this point. If the ground proves OK then you are at an ignition switch fault and most likely will need to switch the switch.

Rust, rust, rust. Looks like my frame is rotting. Is this repairable?The body I can deal with - otherwise the car is in great mechanical shape. Can the rusted section be cut out and new steel welded in...

if you are talking about the section that the engine is mounted on you can replace the whole thing with a used one from a junkyard in most cases it costs 250 dollars for part not including installation not easy you will have to suspend engine in the air for this you need a special tool.
