The tension spring #22 was broken on the 34 deck that is on the 70 that I'm working on. I got a new spring and it ends up being a variable wire thickness spring(the old one was the same)I found the spring under the head of stove bolt #29 with that being the heavy wire end. Is that correct? The stove bolt #29 has a square that it should fit in on #23. I will have to grind a little off the loop to get it around the bolt body. The other end of the spring appears to go in the large spring #24 slot coming from the bottom. I can't get the bolt #29 out because of a welded bracket on the deck. It's going to be real hard to stretch that spring to get the loop on #29 as the light end must be hooked first the way the spring is made. Anyone have any tips to installing this spring?
