Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
I possably can help you. first I need to know what make of machine you are working on
sorry to keep asking questions. I will need the info on the engine. I assume it is a kohler but I need to know what model
here is what I have found so far
you should be able to see where the old springs have worn a little into the steel to determine what holes were used for your application
unfortunately the service manual does not get any more detailed. is there a possibility that you can look at another machine of that same model and take a picture? I don't have one here at this time or else I would do that for you
if you cant find one ill see if anyone locally has one I can look at
