After I had just finished replacing the front casters on the front mowing deck, (hopefully for a stronger design.) I mowed about 100 yards and one deck control arm fell apart.
It appears it had a roll pin holding a washer inside the arm to prevent this and the roll pin failed. Then the open end had the mounting pin cross piece welded in.
Although I can not detect a break; the roll pin is recessed on both ends.
Should I cut it in half and put in a new roll pin washer and then reweld?
Or... does someone have one I can buy?
