the spring that holds up the "button/rod" in the bottom of the lever is not functioning correctly. I'm guessing I need to replace the spring. HOWEVER, I'm having problems removing the cotter pin-like device that retains the bar in the pipe. It seems that its siezed up. Has anyone else ever had this problem? if so, what's the trick? thanks

Thanks for the quick response. I will find me some snap-ring pliers tomorrow at work and will attempt to remove 13 to remove 1 to remove 16. I'll let you know how it goes.

if you cant get the arm off, lower down to its lowest setting (maybe 1 or 2) and then you can tamp out part 16 that way to, it may be easier, but like i said its hard to get the PB (or what not) to soak into it ....... i forgot clean the roll pin (part 16) and the thumb button shaft (part 2) with some carb cleaner to get the PB off of it, less a chance of it backing out when you put it back in

Success!!! I got the roll pin out and the lever out with my BFH and some PB. And as i suspected, the spring had given up. now I have to try to find a suitable replacement. Thanks YT.

go to jacks small engine online spring is $0.40, shipping is 8 min, so look around and get you a few other parts, or go to your local snapper dealer

put some wd 40 or oil on the new one help prevent rust

Take a 1/2 tennis ball and put it over the plunger button to keep the "wet" out as it's not often you will be changing the mowing height

There are some very experienced mechanics on this board,I'm mostly a RER guy,but if you want to work on the Tractors download the links 89YT12 posted the manuals are invaluable.
