I hope this is the right way to ask questions. I have a JD 170 and I see the deck adjuster is loose. I took off the cover but I can not see where the spring hooks up???Any help
Thanks

The spring hooks to the lower edge of the plastic cover and the upper (by the seat) edge of the cutout in the fender deck. It just deflects sideways to change height settings.

It is normal foer it to feel loose. My 165 is the same way. You just move it out of the notch and where you want it and it should be fine. All it does is control how far the deck goes down when you lower it.
