    I wouldn't use rivets in a fit. Have had problems with them working loose from only minor vibrations outside the mowing industry. Would use small bolt with nyloc nut. Plenty of sizes available at bunnings and the like, and you don't have to buy a pop rivet gun.

    +1 re pop rivets (which are usually al Al alloy) unless you use steel or monel rivets.
    What can also help is to bond/glue the join with epoxy (adhesive) as well as bolt or rivet.
    Makes a pretty firm (slop free) and permanent joint.

    Has anyone ever had the lever break where it narrows near the base ?.. 4 out of 5 of mine have..
    Surely It will snap with an extension..Just a thought
    ....Nothing like a good whipper....
