Weedeater Clutch Spring Replace

How does one go about replacing the clutch return spring on this lawn mower?
The spring must be attached to the idler pulley and then threaded through the chassis to an obvious anchor point. Is there a special tool for this? It's a fairly stiff spring that could cause some knuckle busting.
Thanks

Counter man at the local mower repair shop said to use a thin rope. Tried it and it works great. Think I over engineered this problem.
Thanks for your help.

How to replace broken clutch return spring


It's a pain yes, you will need a vise to hold the clutch, attach one end of the spring then the other is the hard part, you will have to use your muscles..

YTS 3000 clutch return spring noise, sounds like it is rubbing on something when you release the clutch but I can't even find the spring


The spring will be attached to the tensioner pully right on top, there is a threaded bolt with nut holding the spring on, I just had to order the clutch cable because the spring broke, from rubbing on metal when engaging and disengaging the clutch lever.

Broken manual clutch cable


You can go to www.Searspartsdirect.com and put you units model number in and order the cable yourself. They can ship it right to your house and you can swap the cable yourself with just simple hand tools.

You can see the details on the idler attachment in the parts schematic when you are ordering your new cable.

Good luck and be careful!

Spring is broken


There are many springs on a riding mower. Is it the clutch spring, the idler pulley spring, or maybe the blade brake springs. There are also springs on the brakes and even under the set. Please be more specific.

Clutch engages to start engine but wont move F or R


could be one of two things - if the clutch pedal just kinda flops and doesn't spring back, the clutch tensioner spring has broken. lift the hood and look at the frame on the front, right side, you'll probably see what's left of the spring hook hanging there - not easy to replace if you've never done it, take it to a shop - OR, an idler on the drive belt pivot has fallen off or broken...easier, but still some work. the small clunk you heard has me leaning toward the spring
