ok it just says a Model Series 260 Troy Bilt Self Propelled Mower, and it's a Spring Extension .40DX2.5 is this enough information I
it goes near the wheel. But not sure where on the wheel.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Found it! model # ***** Serial # *****
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 3 years ago
Thanks for information. I do apologize for the delay in responding to you. I pulled up a parts list to identify your spring. I have several service manuals, but I do not have one that covers your mower.
If you like, I can opt out, to see if someone else has a service manual or image that shows where to attach the other end of your spring.
