One worker slipped the mower off the curb and it bent the blade as well as the crankshaft, replaced the blade but still vibrates bad. How much ball park?? Thanks

Flat rate is 1.8 hrs. including R&R, But that is only a guide. Cost depends on hourly rates in your area and whatever hrs. THEY want to charge.

Ok, one more question and I'll leave you alone!:) ..,I found a new crank on ebay but my motor model is fj180v-bs04-r and this says it will fit the fj180v-s09, would this work for my cub cadet 997? Thanks again and heres the link on ebay.

As long as the part numbers are the same you'll be fine. Check into kawpower.com and determine the correct part number for your engine then compare it to part you found. If the part numbers are not the same, the cranks are not likey condigured the same. By that I mean, not the same exterior length, keyed differently, end threaded differently, tapered vs. cylindrical, etc.

Thanks for the info, I looked at kawapower's site and looks like it will not work on this motor. Thanks again

Not to Hijack the thread but I just had a similar issue in my shop and the MSRP on that engine is around $300

I don't know the labor rate in your area but example
crank $95 + 1.8hr at $65 and tax is a rough $225
without any other seals and oil and shop supply charges.

When I priced it out for my customer he went with a new engine and the piece of mind that everything was new(his unit was older, not sure the age on your engine)

May just be something to consider:)

being the cheapskate that I am, I found a little mower shop that has a crank straightener machine, and for $75 said that they can get it true to -2%. What do yall think of this? Thanks again:usflag:

That is probably the worst option available. You can get it straight, but who knows what condition the material is in from being stretched one way and then being forced back. Definitely some weak spots in there after that happens.

Bottom line is that is not a recommended fix.

Same guy takes same unit and hits same object then crank snaps from being weakened and blade flies out from under unit removing guy's foot.

Is it worth $75 ?

Is it worth $75 ?I think a foot is worth a little more so Im getting a new crank. Other than gaskets would yall recommend replacing some bearings as well>

All that's needed is crank, Sump gasket, lower and upper crank seals.
