Last fall I bent the caster wheel "arm" on my 72" 7-Iron MMM deck (non auto-connect) so it obviously won't track correctly. This afternoon I unsuccessfully attempted to beat it into submission with my 4lb hammer after heating it up with the little Bernzomatic MAPP torch. After several attempts, I gave up. I'm not sure what the next step might be-- auto body shop with a hydraulic press? Since a replacement is about $150, any suggestions would be appreciated.
Note: The yoke, wheel and axle are good (despite the photo), it's just the support arm that's bent.
