Looks like a travel stop or it probably is to hold that pin in place.  ???

I see its not really in line with the pin but if it goes in far enough it could sit in a groove in that pin therefore holding it from sideways movement.

 

Just a guess - I'm not sure what part of the machine I'm looking at.  :wave:

It looks like it sits to low to be able to have anything to do with the pin, but maybe I'm wrong.

I agree but if the pin had a dimple for the set screw to "hit" in a blind hole like that it would be very hard to line the dimple up with the set screw.  This way all the pin has to be is flush on both ends and the set screw will automatically line up. 

 

Again,  just guessing......

100% positive it's the adjustment for the internal brakes. Download the service manual from this site and you shall see.

case442 and Kyocum are right. Adjustment screw for the internal brakes.  If you try to move it make sure its free before really reefing

on it. Had a customer at work bring one in cause he broke the screw and the cracked the arm trying to get the broken part out.  Hope this helps.             Stewart

It is definitely the cub cadet internal brake adjustment. I have A cub cadet 1650 with the internal break and that's exactly how mine looks.
