    But I bet the manufactures make a lot of money selling replacement parts.

    kinda like kubota ps lines that are 'designed' to fail every 2 ys and be changed as part of regualr maintenance, at a huge ankle grabbing price tag..

Needless to say the plastic couldn't take the pressure.

    The nose cap is intact but has a nasty split in the plastic down the center. I don't have any experience repairing that type of material but have seen in the past where people have repaired cracks like that in the plastic fairings on crotch rocket motorcycles. I have the know how to use the glue, etc. with some light aluminum straps behind the cracks but don't know what type of adhesive or glue to use.

    Any suggestions rather than the $100 the JD dealer wants for a new one? If I fix it and leave myself open for ridicule by my friends I will never have another accident like that. If I buy a new part..............

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Try JB weld sand the area and clean before you apply it. Take duct tape to secure the piece tightly. I fixed a wiper cowl with it. You can keep building it up to strengthen it. Robert
