I restored this in my spare time over the course of about two years. It's all done and running except i cant remember how or where the blade return spring is fastened.
Inside the blade housing on the right ride there is a square nut welded to the edge. I remember the spring hooked there. I thought at the time it may have been something someone added but now i am wondering if it was that way from the factory because of another picture i found on the WWW.
Do any of you guys have a Swisher of this vintage and can you show me a picture of the blade engagement area where the return spring is?
