so i have to bring it somewhere to have them fix it? thought it was going to be some easy adjustment.......I just mowed with it and it is really annoying and the spring is rubbing so much that it is gouging the metal. I can push the shaft back in, but as soon as I put it into gear it comes right back out after a few passes. How much did it cost? thanks for the help....

No Prob Devnuts.im In Ct Too.when The Right Side Came Off It Cost Me 40 Bucks,you Just Cant Pop On In,you Have To Take Some Things Off The Side.butseeing That I Was In A Bind,my Place Took Care Of It Right Away.when The Left Side Fell Off Same Deal 40 Bucks,but The Left Side Fell Off Again After A Few Passes,so Back It Went.the Guy Looked At It And Said The 1st Guy Stretched The Ring By Accident And It Was Falling Off Again,so They Said I Was All Set.wrong!!!! Fell Off Again,this Time I Was Pissed.i Broght It Back In And I Needed A Shaft On The Left Side,what Was Happening Was The Groove Was Getting Rounded Over So The Ring Was Slipping.another 30 Bucks And I Was On My Way.its Been Ok Since And This Is Going On 4 Weeks Now.
