Ariens Help Does thisspring look in the right position?

Im kinda stuck here and could use some help.
There is a spring that goes on the Attachment Idler Arm and I just cant figure out how it goes. Any other way I position it it really does nothing.
Here is a pic

Kris,
what is the model number of the snowblower?

thanks,
Scot

Thanks for the extra info!
unfortunately the manuals dont seem to show how it attached..
two manuals come up:

Ariens Order Owners Manuals

The parts manual shows the spring, on page 6, but it doesnt show how it attaches.
unfortunately I dont see it anywhere else in the manuals..maybe someone else can find it hiding in there..

other than that, we will need to find someone with a similar model who can open theirs up and compare to yours..

Scot

My guess (purely a guess) would be to wrap the left "hooked" edge up and over the arm and near the right hook edge as it sits in your first picture. Since it's the engagement idler the default would be the idler arm turning away from the belts under the pressure of the spring. It should in turn likely turn the lever that is at the back of the tractor assembly down, away from the action of the cable that is connected to the auger engagement handle. Sure seems like they would have put a notch in there, but don't see one.

Yeah no notch at all, go figure. There is one on the arm itself but from looking at 100's of videos it doesn't go there.

First of all, let me say this is a random guess. But from looking at your ORIGINAL photo, take a look at the end of the spring that is sitting against the orange metal. It looks like there is a scratch across the black metal in a perfect arc that results in the current location. Is it possible that this end of the spring was hooked over the edge of the black metal and came loose?

Good eye. But unfortunately I made that scratch trying to fugue out different possibilities.

Here's my next best suggestion. I have this same model that I bought from the original owner late this past winter. I need to drop the pan and take a look at things. I can't promise when it will happen but I'll take a look and let you know (and I'll take photos). Would you want to send me a PM with your email and I'll be sure to check for you.
