Anyone have any idea how long the clutch return spring is . I just found out mine is gone I let the clutch out and the clutch break pedel is not comeing up far enough to engage so I have to pull it up with my foot to get it to ingage . The short spring that goes from the back side of the pedel to I'm guess the bolt under the battery tray

There are two springs that pull the clutch/brake pedal back. One of the springs is at the top right rear of the transaxle, and the other spring goes from the clutch/brake pedal to a bolt in the frame. The spring on the transaxle is a little beefier than the one on the clutch/brake pedal. Here are some pics of the springs, their lengths, and their locations. The pic with the ruler is a little screwy, but the length of the springs is 4-1/2".

These two springs work fine for me. I don't think that there is a grease fitting on the clutch/brake pedal shaft. Make sure everything moves freely before hooking the springs up,and you can use oil on the clutch/brake pedal shaft.

Yup, that's a common problem with weak or missing springs. The PB blaster should free things up a bit, also. You may also need to adjust your drive belt tension. Do this by adjusting the nuts at the threaded end of the clutch rod under the seat. Remember, the pedal also controls the brake, so any clutch rod adjustment you make will affect how the brakes work. The brake may need to be adjusted if you adjust the drive belt tension. Test the brakes on flat land if you do adjust the drive belt tension.

If you adjust some of the slack out of the drive belt, you will need to take slack out of the brake band, also. It takes some time to get the clutch and brake adjusted just right, but once it's set up right, you won't have to mess with it for a while.

So I tried to adjust it and the belt is stretched beyond adjustment anyone have any idea what's the belt number so I can get another belt and mine don't have a high and low rear end if that matters

You're welcome. I've been using the green belts from NAPA or the mower shop up the road.
