A few months ago I purchased this helper spring. It came with the hook.

Azure Terrestrial animal Gas Electric blue Tail


I watched a YouTube video of the spring being installed. The guy in the video didn’t use this hook, only a steel strap (8a in the diagram) that bolted beneath the shifter cover.

Was the hook for early models and the strap for later models?
What is the proper installation on my ‘66?

EDIT: My tractor has the square hole under the shifter cover for a carriage bolt. That leads me to believe that I should use a steel strap and no hook as in the YouTube video.
What say you?

Thanks, Tom

I wish my '66 could be of more help to you Tom on this but sorry, the '66 I'm restoring didn't have one. The '66 we bought new back then had one along with the snow blower but that's way too far back for me to remember how it was attached. Hopefully one of our members will be able to help you out with some info.

PC877 shows the bracket (8A) used 1965 and earlier. The hook (8B) shows 1965 and later. So 1965 is the changeover from bracket to hook. The bracket (M40511) subs to the hook (M41421).

Typically an "A" part is the first version and "B" "C" are later versions/subs.

The owner's manual shows the spring installation procedure. This is from the 36 snow thrower OM.
