I guess that most of us know that Honda engines last much longer than Honda Chassis', so here's a tip to make your chassis last a bit longer: I'm sure that most of you will already know this, but for those who don't the easy way to fix the play that you get in the front axle/chassis where the front wheels connect on a well used mower is to simply cut a piece of garden hose the same length as the axle bush, slice it down one side with your pruners & slip it on the axle before you put the bush on. Once the bush is on top of the hose, & you've tightened the screws back up it's like new! ;) :) Just repeat the process every time the hose wears & the axle starts to flop about again. You should get a few more years out of the body! ;)
