Ok, I knew the spring had to provide some tension but I didn't know how to achieve this. Unfortunately there are no "wear" spots to guide me. I will figure something out. You've been a great help. Thanks.

I do not have a photo or drawing of it from that perspective, but the other end will way up against the bracket that's welded to the deck. This will give the spring something to push against. Keep in mind that what you want to achieve with this is to have the brake arm push against the mandrel pulley when the PTO is off.

OK, These pics were very helpful, but where does the other end of spring #58 on schematic hook into. This was a good pic of the one end, but I also need to know where the other end of this spring hooks. I thought, with the info given, I could easily figure this out if I put the arms in place, but that wasn't happening.. This is a Craftsman mower model number 917271120-- Thanks

Having to do repairs on an appliance is always a tough project. I have taken the time to research on the Manage My Life website and have found a few links that you may find useful. While you are waiting for an expert to reply I have attached the link below.
