Any idea where that spring. Omnivore from the rear of the deck connects to to the spindle? It doesn't seem like there is any kind of mechanism relevant to the pto

The spring connects to the bracket that the idler pulley is mounted to. When you engage it all you are doing is moving the idler bracket which tensions the belt.
