This is the hydrostat transmission.

The rod is held with a one time use, slip on nut.

So the pin, which exits the back of the tractor below the seat, is attached by a single use nut that has to be ordered?
Can you tell me how to access the point at which the nut connects to the piece that is visible outside the tractor so I can replace it

I saw the graphic that you sent. Quite honestly, I found that online before contacting you. Is the nut, which I'm seeing as part number 23, accessible under the hood?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Pardon me, not hood, seat. How do I best access the area? Does the tractor need to be raised?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
The deck needs to be off,then you can get to the area, it is up top on the transmission. If it were mine,I would take a small drill bit, and drill a hole in the end of the rod, so I could use a flat washer and a cotter key, instead of this press on nut! Much easier to install a cotter pin, than this push on nut!
