38050 drive control problems

Hello, I recently received a Toro 38050 snowblower from a neighbor. All was going well until the last snowfall. It randomly popped out of gear and now it won’t work properly. There is no tension on the drive control lever and the gears are messed up. I took off the cover and found one end of a spring broken and just dangling. Looked around but wasn’t sure where it goes. Any help would be appreciated.

I took a picture but not sure how to add it. It’s #13 in the picture.

Here’s a picture of the spring. Are we talking about the same one? https://imgur.com/gallery/C8j9Waw?s=sms

yep, that's the same spring. I'm showing you where I've hooked both my 824 and 724.

the other end of "Part-12" is illustrated on the parts list.


If it's still unclear, I can take more pics of my machines when I get a chance.
