I got this manual push mower off a free list. It was described as "functions fine" but it didn't. When I looked to youtube for how-to repair answers, I didn't find any so I figured it out and thought it might be worth sharing what I learned. I'm not claiming to be an expert and these are probably not best practices for safety, so don't follow my example too closely. If you have advice for how this could be done better or with more accurate vocabulary, please comment below. Thanks and watch your fingers!
