First post here, just joined the forum, but have been reading a lot, but cannot find a post related to my question. Am rebuilding a 1979 924039 that was in very good shape and cannot figure out how the spring for the traction belt idler arm attaches. The parts diagram is not much help and I have a photo showing the best place I could find, but cannot attach it to this post. I can email it to any kind soul that can help! There are two holes for the spring in the arm, but no slot in the frame like the friction disc clutch fork return spring. Hoping the Ariens gurus can help. Thanks

It goes into the nearby hole right above the axle. The machine in the attached photo is in lousy shape but hopefully you can see where the spring goes.

I completely understand... it somehow seems "wrong" and you'd think the spring would hook into some sort of dedicated tab or bracket.

But I've got another 924-series machine that's completely as it was when it came from the factory, and that's where that spring hooks in.
