I'm looking at a couple different springs listed as assist springs one has a bracket too but I'm not 100% sure which one is for my tractor. Can someone post a picture?

The bracket looks different than the one I am looking at , I think I'll hold off and get one from someone that knows what they have.

I have seen 2 or 3 different mounting brackets that bolts to the frame

it is best to remove the fender pan to see how it fits

 

here are a couple pictures of a spare helper spring that I have

in the hole in front of the upright for the fender pan on the left side of the frame

 

make sure that bolt is tight on the frame - I always use a lock washer for the bolt
