Here is a picture of a Cub from TM Tractor Parts. Note the assembly that runs diagonally from one side to the other. Your 140 should have similar parts.

The L-shaped handle in the middle of that brace is used to lock the sway down. With it tight, side sway is minimal, no more than a 3-point with the sway bars in place. With the l-shaped handle loosened, it is free to sway within the limits of the roll pin and slots to the left of the handle.
