Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Can you provide the model and serial number from the frame of your machine so that I can better assist you? Which spring are you needing to replace?
You have a hydrostat transmission, is that correct? I need better clarification as to what you are referencing as the shift spring. You have a clutch pedal return spring or a neutral return spring but nothing that I would classify as a shift spring.
Can you tell me what kind of problem that you are having with the machine? I have located what they call a shift spring and the only thing that it does is keeps pressure on the shift lever so that it is not just flopping around loose. I have included a diagram of where it is.
The spring that we are looking at is reference number 82 in the diagram and is at the base of the hydro control lever.
The simplest way to replace that spring is to unscrew the knob from the hydro control lever then you can slide the old spring up and off of the shaft and slide the new spring back down and into place on the shaft and then screw the knob back on.
I understand and we can continue our conversation here at any time. If you need to step away for a moment to take a look or try what I have suggested and then come back feel free to do so. If you want to wait until tomorrow and come back here you can. Again our conversation can be continued at any time. If you need further assistance feel free to ask. I am here to try to help you with this problem.
The two ends of the spring have to be hooked into place, one end just goes around the shaft the other end will catch or hook onto the bracket that the control shaft goes through.
One end of the spring just hooks or catches on the bracket that the shaft goes through and the other should hook around the shaft itself. You will need to pull it around to hook it so that it puts some tension on the spring.
If you are not happy with the suggestions or answer that I have provide you can ask for a refund. I will forward your request to a moderator who will be able to help you with that.
I have forwarded your refund request to a moderator who should be getting back in touch with you soon.
