Hello Roeboat109!

Sounds to me like you are describing the fuel shutoff valve. This just shuts off the flow of fuel to the carburetor.

all the decals are worn off to show what anything is for .there is a turn shut off valve below the tank by the hose is why i didnt think it was that.what broke off was a lever like the one on the other side for the grass speed.maybe this is another way of turning the gas off? this has never broke before so i have no idea. i dont spend much time at dealers,except for parts.these parts are sometimes hard to find. the other grass spring that goes to the top is a real pain in the $$$ and it breaks more than it should,seems like. thanks for the help for any other help .have a good day.
