Customer Question

Hello, the model number indicates a push mower, not a self propelled mower. The part you bought is a drive gear for a self propelled mower. Do you need a blade hub that holds the blade onto the crankshaft?

the blade and the things that hold it
in place are working O"K. The engine starts and goes normally, the problem is that the blade won't move. It doesn't have a belt, or, the belt transmission. It has a gear (inside) that moves the blade
