Re: Another with Honda 5HP shear pin problems


I think I have tried everything and the only thing that has worked is a
stainless steel pin. I haven't sheared one in a long time. Of course the
risk is that it might not shear when you hit something and you could have a
bent shaft as a result I guess.
