Your schematic is exactly what I have now in the Craftsman manual. Note. Original part number in the manual is 406558. Sears changed ro 53406558
Expert:  JON replied 1 year ago.

so you need to know where the spring attaches on both sides?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I's a visual person. A different schematic would be most help. Also, not shown is the drive control cable. Could this spring share the same bracet as the drive cable?

First, I need to say that I AM VERY PISSED OFF with your deceitful charges and I WILL CONTEST YOUR CHARGE WITH AMEX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You ask for a $5 good faith deposit for your help. I thought I gave it to you. What you did was to send me a copy of the page I already have I my instruction book and at the very exact time charge me for your 13 dollar balance. I printed and saved the date - time stamps both to my AMEX account and your transmission. Transmission time for your excessive billing charge was 3:05 pm and transmission time for sending me the same pics that I have in my manual was 2:57 pm!!!!!! You charged my account BEFORE you ever gave me an answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YES, I am very pissied off with your illegal charge. YES, I do need help showing me where to attach the tension spring between the transmission and the mower body. NO MORE POP UPS for a live phone call "for just $24 to get the help I need." The help I need is to SEE THE ATTAHMENT points.
