I am having a problem finding the issue with one of my mowers. It's a Shanks 553 HRS, which is the same machine as the Lawnflite and Honda of the same model number.
I've just finished changing the gearbox parts and control cable and the mower pulls like a train now.
However the roller on right hand side, the side without the lever adjustment, just sags. I just cannot see what I've done wrong in reassembling the rear drive roller.
The left side roller is fixed due to the adjustment arm, the right side simply has a bracket which bolts to the deck and allows the arm and roller to pivot.
I can see that in principal this is to enable the right side of the roller to move in line with the left side adjustment, however as soon as any weight is put on the machine, the right side simply pivots on the bolt.
I hope I've explained it in a way that helps identify what school boy error I've made.
