Hello all, Setting up the mower on the mf 12. Got one new spring from jacks, that is the one that attaches to the lower pully and the frame. It appears a second spring is needed that attaches to the peddle assembly then to a clip under the foot rest that that provides actual tension for the mower belt. Are these two springs the same springs?...Thanks for your help

No, I think the spring running back under the footboard is a weaker one. On my MF 10 it has a smaller diameter and thinner steel. It just needs to be strong enough to make the lower pulley engage.

Yes, it's a smaller spring.
