Hi Everyone,

I have a troy bilt pony. i bought the plow for it and now i am ready to put back on the lawn mower since winter is done with. I installed everything but i can not figure out where the pto spring goes. This is the last part that needs to be connected and i am totally lost. Does anyone know where this spring hooks up to? It says the deck idler bracket but i am lost. I also have another smaller spring that i can't remember where it goes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I can't answer your question without the model number but may I make a suggestion to all who work on there own mowers. When removing a spring or almost any other parts, put a small wire tie thru any hole. Masking tape and black magic markers are very handy to have around also. Use them to get back to where you started. I have learned the hard way that you just can't remember where every little part goes. The wire ties have helped me maintain my sanity (maybe).

I've also started taking photos with my digital camera while taking things apart. I'm generally ok as long as I get it back together the same day. But extend that out to a week or more and my mental pictures start to get fuzzy anymore. :D
