Bill, that's what I was wondering about. I tried several times before, and I just couldn't get the roll/clevis pin through the eye of that spring. You can see where I tried to spread one spring apart in my efforts.
From what you are telling me, I was on the right track, but I wasn't close enough.
You can bet I'll have the mower deck and the sub frame dropped this weekend, and I will make every effort to install those springs the way you've told me to do. No small wonder I don't have much hair on top of my head these days.
