How do I install the hinge rod on my Craftsman lawn mower model number 917387490?

The hinge rod connects the discharge guard and the mulcher plate. This has 2 hinge screws that I can not remove. I just need instructions on how to install it.

To get a picture of how the hinge rod connects to the discharge chute and the mulching plate go to sears.com. Select parts and enter your model number, select the view image button on the upper right of the page and you can see a picture.

The hinge rod goes through the deflector from the rear of the mower toward the front. The mounting bracket is mounted to the mower deck and should not be removed. The hinge rod has to go through the spring that keeps the deflector down and the mulching plate. This is difficult to do and you will need some help to hold the deflector, spring, and mulching plate while you push the hinge rod through.
