The good, The Bad, The Ugly.

The good: Got my normal front wheel repaired.

The bad: Had a 3rd deraillieur failure this month. Had enough, and made the dmr a ss(again)

The ugly: The PTO on my riding mower went.

Good on the wheel, Dan.

Jeez, RD's just don't like you (at least not lately).

OOOO, loss of pto could be major hassle, depending on what you use it for. Fargo?

I have a PTO out in the shop but I think it might be overkill for you garden tractor. It's eventually going on the transfer case of my IH.

Ken, I cannot look at a garden shredder without thinking of that movie

We've got a TroyBilt, and of course, it is indeed named Fargo. I'm guessing that it is not the only one so named.

The PTO on my mower went last month. Ended up just being a corroded electrical connection at the clutch. Unplugged it, used a bit of sandpaper to remove the corrosion, and all was well. Maybe you will be as lucky.
