    Default Fixing bent wheel shackles on rear mount finish mowers

    I've bent one of mine a couple times and they are a bear to straighten because of the axle being off center from the pivot shaft. When you apply pressure, the assembly wants to twist and roll. I had tried the press, but that wasn't the answer. I had settled upon using a large pipe wrench but was never able to get everything square to the appropriate axis that was involved. Tonight I tried a couple things and then decided it was time to get out the plasma wrench! Here's what I came up with. This is the answer!

    And of course, the obligatory beautiful evening tractor pic!

    That's odd, I can't edit the original post. Anyway, here's the pictures!
