Give me you brutal honest opinion. Is this 312 mower deck too far gone to repair? I thought about trying to basically cut out the whole top part of the deck and weld in new sheet metal. But I'm not sure how to make the spindles back in their original height position, because the original locations are recessed from the factory stamping. And as you can see there has already been lots of welding years ago. Any brutal thoughts/opinions?
