I just changed the actuator arm on my girlfriend's 6437-900 and it's pretty straight forward. Not certain how you got the transmission out, but here's what I did:
-unplug the vacuum
-remove the 4 screws and the plate over the roller brush as well as the roller brush
-remove the two screws and the plastic cover over the end of the hose on the right side.
-remove the 2 screws down in the bottom of the housing on either side of the drive wheels
-remove the single screw in the middle/bottom of the housing
-push the two tabs on the inside of the outer edge of the housing to remove the top cover
-flip the vacuum over, you'll see an "e" clip holding the actuator arm in place being careful not to lose it
-use a torx bit to remove the old cable hold down
-gently bend the metal piece over the arm back far enough to remove the old arm. Note the slot in the metal piece, you'll need to make sure you get the metal tab in the slot when you reassemble everything.
-put the new arm in, about $8 at a Hoover repair store
-put the metal piece over the rod that the e-clip fits into, making certain the tab and slot are aligned
-press down on the metal piece once it's on the rod with the tip of your screwdriver so it snaps in place, carefully put the e-clip back in it's slot on the rod.
-put the cover back on, lay the vacuum flat, put the cable end in it's channel on the arm, tighten the hold down.
-flip the vacuum over, plug it in and turn it on, being careful to keep hands, fingers, ties, hair, small children, pets, etc away from the spinning roller brush
-move the handle, still in the off position, up and down to make certain the drive wheels don't move. If they do then readjust the position of the cable on the end of the arm. The wheels should not move at all with the handle in the off position.

Remove the bottom plate (4 screws), remove belts and brush roller. There may be 1 small screw in the center front of the vac under the brush roller. remove this one. If this is a bagless model you will also need to remove all of the back screws (torx) that hold the lower hose on. This needs to be removed to take the hood off. underneath on each side of the power drive assembly you will have 1 screw, remove them. there is a clip on each side that snaps the front on, push them out with a screwdriver. Then the hood is removed.
