I have a john deere 68 with a twin blade 34/36"? deck. I removed the deck for repair and cannot remember the location of a small spring which I believe goes from the deck to the frame. The spring is about 4-3/4" long, 5/8" diameter and about 1/16" shank thickness. (light duty compared to all others for deck. Can anyone help me with the location of this spring? Thank you.

That sounds like an idler tensioning spring... Like on a belt tightener.

:anyone:
