ran over a rock with tractor
Hi all. Ran over a rock with my Sears lawn tractor and it stopped the mowers and engine cold. Something got knocked out of alignment because I found one of the mandrel pulleys is now touching the belt minder, which is located right next to the pulley. This was keeping the pulley from turning at first and the engine would stall when I tried to engage the mowers. Managed to push the pulley and belt minder apart enough to allow the mowers to work, but the pulley is now wearing 2 big grooves in the belt minder. Not good.
Before I buy any new parts, is there a good way to tell which component(s) are bent, whether it is the pulley or the belt minder, or maybe that brake link bar that controls the belt tension for the blades? These components look undamaged but there is obviously a problem in there.
