    if your problem is a bent shaft, you can straighten them out with a sledge hammer. Have fixed three 5 horse b&s lawnmower engines this way.

    are you sure you didn't shear a flywheel key, those shear and can run really wierd after, or they won't run at all. causes them to shake like he!! if they run.
