the lift spring is the spring that attaches to the deck handle that lifts the deck up and down. i can see in the manual where to attach one side, but it does not give detail where to attach the small side. The lift assist spring will connect from the lever base connect point to the very rear of the tractor

the screw has lock ty-et and yes its a pain we run in to this all the time just keep trying or heating it up helps most of the time we cut them out. you'll have to remove the deck. when we reinstall we put a bolt head type back in. good luck

You might want to look for any broken gears where the chute pivots and anything that might be bent not allowing for any total movement. Plus check to see if the gears are making contact.

make sure the vent in the gas cap isnt plugged up. test by loosening it a bit to see if it cures your problem

sounds like the drive belts may be wore out and need replaced. also the tension pulleys may be binding. clean and spray some lubrication spray on them that may help some.

Dont know the exact lash for the MTD OHV engine but most small engines of this type will work just fine with both intake and exhaust at 0.006 inches. Make adjustment with piston at TDC compression stroke.

This may be the same diagram you already have, but this is the manufacturer engineering drawing for that deck.

I had the same problem with the shifter cable braking.They were very expensive to replace.My cable tube(the outer part with the adjustable nuts) was still good.The cable itself was broken.I went to the nieghborhood hardware store and bought a length of cable of the correct size.I then used an electrical eyelet at each end (the eyelet has place to slide wire into it then it get crimped to hold the wire,also it has a hole in it so a screw or bolt can go through to hold it in place.I connected an eyelet to one end of cable,2nd I fed the cable through the tube,3rd, I put a screw through the hole were the cable connect to the shift linkage(@ trans),4th placed the eyelet on the screw 5th then placed the nut on the screw .At end of cable where shift nob is I placed an eyelet where the cable originally went,Pulled the new cable through taking out ALL the slack,Marked cable then crimped it,placed nut on screw.It works like new.MAKE SURE THE LINKAGE and SHIFT NOB ARE IN NUTURAL POSITION
