Hand mower technical question

I need a bit of technical help. I have just replaced the drive belt on my Efco LR48TH Mulch hand mower. The problem is that I stripped it down before Christmas and due to the holidays, I have only just got and fitted the new belt. I also forgot to take any pictures, which I normally always do.

So the problem is that I have one spring which I don’t know the location of. The gear box is held in tension with the belt by one spring, which is in place, but where does this larger one go? I can see no obvious place for it. Any ideas?

Here is a diagram of all the parts, but it is not a proper exploded view so is no help. The tensioning spring is number 64. The spring I need to find a home for is number 44 and is listed as ‘spring height adjuster’b91ed9c1-4f93-43ce-8058-c38ed5ddb2a2.gif

  • Just got back from the pub so apologies if this is waffle, but does it fit between the height adjustment lever and the mower chassis? To stop the machine collapsing when you pull the height adjustment 'pin' out of the chassis?

    Does it fit between 41 to give the height adjust some tension?

  • Could be either. I will have to have a much closer and longer look to see any signs of where the spring has worn where it attaches.
