Typically, the shaking in a lawn mower has nothing to do with idlers, but more often a bent blade. Check your blade. It can sometimes be taken off and straightened and resharpened, but easier to just buy a new one for about $15. You can take the old blade with you to get the correct match for the mower.
Good advice.. I had to lift the mower up with the tractor and a chain to look if there was a stick wedged. I will remember to remove the spark plug next time I'm under there. I don't know anything about the other so will have to have the smoke screen . Lol. I know my mower blades could stand to be sharpened but that's beyond my skills.:-(
Next mechanical guy that comes along ...lol

The carbuerator is usually on the same side where a rubber hose feeds from the gas tank. When tilting, that side should always be tilted up. If you hoisted the mower with the tractor and chain, then it was probably level. The smoke screen is not the only problem with improper tilting. Oil can get into the carbuerator jets and clog them and the mower won't run very well and sometimes not at all.

Many years ago, some shops would straighten bent crank shafts, but I don't know anyone that does that any more. We have become a disposable society.

When I was a kid mowing grandpa's yard. In the back by the shed almost got in a yellow jacket nest. Seen it just in time to avoid the sting.

Rain. Rain. Yep. Just what we needed! Relieved I don't have to resort to watering the bushes and newly planted trees yet!!!
Speaking of bees. Last summer I ran over a nest of the ground bees. It was an exciting few minutes and I mowed around them the rest of the summer. Respect. I have a lot of respect for them.

I did not need the rain at all. I have been waiting for 3 weeks for my corn field to dry out enough to plant corn. It also stopped my deck building (can't run electric saws or cut lumber that is wet) and also stopped my grass cutting, but it did not stop my nap or the load of dirty work clothes in the washer LOL

Moody weather will only allow you get so much overdue maintenance done after the climate change came in.

Hey ! How have all you yardbirds been doing? WELL, I hope. for me, it's been a busy spring. between fenceing,plowing,planting,and all the other springtime chores, I've barely had time to turkey hunt and look for noodles [mushrooms] hickory chickens, dry land fish. But I did manage to take one tom turkey,and have found about four pounds of noodles so far. My My, what tasty meals I've had.[thanks to the good Lord that provided]Mmmmm golden brown! Love my fried stuff. Found about two pounds of the big white ones yesterday, some big as coffee cups! having some of them for supper tonight along with some deer tender loin,baked potato, greasy-beans out the garden, homony, corn bread, and for desert,,blackberry dumplin's. got a good start on it with some thawing, some soak'n in salt water, but got alot of breading and cooking to do so I'd better jump off here and get busy! Just wanted to say howdy, Soooo HOWDY !!

When working on a mower in the blade area, first remove the spark plug wire so the thing won't start and if turning the mower up to look or replace the blade, turn it with the carbuerator side up. If that side is down, oil will run into the carbuerator and create a smoke screen when and if you restart it.
Thanks, AW. It has a brand new mulching blade on it. I learned how to put one of those on several years ago;) It hit a stump. Could it be something else though? It vibrates badly. Thanks though. Probably will have to get it repaired. I can change oil and blades. The in depth mechanics is not my forte. Lol. I appreciate your responses;) Glad to see you are working on this and that. Hope Dog is doing as well.Rainy here. Will do my mowing as soon as the yard dries out.

www. Alchemyworks- seeds.com . You might need to find under Alchemy Works. Harold is a guy in New York. Look under seeds; he has chamomile seeds, a German variety. I bought nasturtium and nightshade seeds from him. Great place to shop. Hope it helps;)

Welllllll, other than the rain watering my newly planted things, it pushed the fencing job back and totally postponed putting in the concrete culvert that was delivered today. so I understand what your saying. Last year the Amish guy that was working for me had a chisel slip out of his tool belt. Went straight down and sliced the extension cord in half!!! Talk about sparks flying!!! Regular 4th of July !!!
