Mine is now again too---LOL! Thanks for the help!
Hit some thing hard to bend that.
I really can't say if this and the front deck mount was bent before I got this tractor in 2011 or if I did it since then. I know I've banged the cutting deck into trees and one time early last summer the ground was so wet that i slid into the ditch in front of the house, went and got the pickup and tow cable and it got stuck too. Got the truck out then with the cable and a long chain I got the truck into a better spot for some bite and drug it out. I was alone so couldn't see for sure what was happening to the tractor. It shouldn't have hit anything substantial-----
Anyway the front axle is back in tonight, new bolt, nice and tight. NO play in the front axle at all now, but it still pivots easily. Greased the zirks while it was hanging on the hoist. I hadn't finished installing the implement drive pedal with this new engine since the snow blade didn't require it so that got done tonight too. Tomorrow night i will get the front deck mount straightened out and installed then it will be time to sharpen blades and hang the deck.
