Have you checked the manuals? Maybe the parts manual would show it?

You'll need your serial number, in addition to the model number:

I was able to download the Owners, Service, and Parts manuals for my machine, for free.

Ha.
When I read the thread title I thought this was going to be another " Is winter ever gonna end???" thread.
Ok. Back on topic. An unattached spring assembly, not an upcoming season.

In the parts manual for your snow blower, look on page 12, item number 11. There is a spring around the gear shaft, with washer #3 and a pin #12 one one end.

In the owners manual, on page GB-21, lower drawing on figure 18, you can see the spring installed. (If you download the PDF, blow it up to make it clearer by using <ctrl><+> (hold down the control key and tap the "+" key. It becomes clear at around 400%.)

its not the large spring that puts pressure on the wheel lock, but a smaller one on the other shaft, thinking it might go to a hole in the wheel lock , cable goes in hole on one side, empty hole on the other side, would like to know for sure. cable not working on wheel lock right now . thanks again

Have a look at the service manual, page GB-41, item number 19. Small spring that goes between the two axles. (In the part manual, page 12, item 19).

Not certain, looks like one end of the spring hooks on part number 16 (only part on the axle that has a hook for spring attachment and looks like it's used to maintain the teeth in a locked position.)

If the cable hooks into the other end (of part 16) that would make sense, the spring is used to maintain tension on the assy, which is released by pulling the cable.

(Or is the spring already hooked to p/n 16 and it's the other end that's in question?)

i hooked it in the hole on part 16, makes sense because cable pulls it other way to release it ,
thanks again
