    I just purchased a used Bunton BHC-52 and need a little advice on the deck.
    The idler arm blade to blade for the cutting blade belt tension seems to be froze or at least thats what it looks like to me.
    Isn't this pivot point supposed to be free?

    Yes it should be free, There is probably a bushing in the center of the arm that is froze up. You can remove the spring and arm spray the bushing with Fluid film (there ya go Dano :waving: ) and see if you can drive it out of the arm. Once out clean it up good and apply some anti-seize compound on it and reassemble.

    Good Luck
