Hello all. Has anyone every broke the implement handle that raises and lowers the blower or blade on a MF10. Handle is on the left side and has the push button on top that releases the right angle locking pin in the level selector under the tractor. The right angle on mine broke off so now my blade will not lock in any 'up' position. I cannot figure out how to get the handle apart so I can fix the rod with the right angle on it. I have the parts book but I still cannot figure out how to get the thing apart. Obviously there is a spring inside but I can't find anything that holds it all together.
Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

You have to hold the rod that goes up through the lever and unscrew the button on the top. Then you should be able to find the spring.

On yours, it may be hard to remove the top button because the rod is broken. However, it may just pull right up and out if it's a clean break. The button on the top is threaded and the rod (straight through the arm, and that "L" bend on the end) The spring is just under the button and is maybe an inch long. I have mine all apart right now so if you need photos I can take some.
