1886 Tractor. Extension spring part # 1703615. Obvious that one end hooks into the PTO idler rail 1718616). Not so obvious where the other end attaches to. Photos would be helpful. Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Did you look in the Manuals Section? You aren't giving much information. Is this a Bolens 1886? There is a big manual for the Bolens you can download. Good Luck, Rick

My H16 has a whole in line opposite the spring on the frame. It had a cotter pin coming up through the bottom with the legs folded back beneath the frame. The spring hooked into the head of the cotter pin. Mine is a part right now but here is where the hole is on mine. Hope this helps.

Thanks Rick. It's an 1886-01. The large frame repair manual doesn't show the exact connection point - a photo would be a huge help.

And if this helps, a few from when I replaced my front axle support.
