MoWER HELP

hello
I need some help here with a JohnDeere 160 lawn tractor.
Someone took it apart and could not reassemble it ,so they brought it to me to fix. I have got it mostly figured out,but the clutch pedal has me going.
The pedal is not hooked up to anything,and I don't have any parts that look right for it. On the belt that goes from the motor to the tranny(this is a five speed tranny,so it doesn't use the complicated "torque converter/variable pitch pulley deal) I have two idler pulleys that are mounte d about six inches apart on a metal plate that swivels,the belt goes thru these like in an "S" and plate has a spring that makes the plate swivel to tighten the belt. I think this is some kind of clutch deal, but I can't see how it hooks to the pedal. Anyone know how this goes? I'd appreciate some HELP
Thanks Tornerito

I believe the clutch rod has a hook in the end, and the swiveling bracket with the idlers on it should have a hook stamped in it. The clutch rod hooks onto the hook on the plate. This is just going by memory. Maybe the link JLO gave you will help.

Go to www.jdparts.com and register as a member (it's free and tey won't spam you if you check the right boxes) and do a model search as mentioned above. They have complete parts lists AND drawings showing where everything goes. Best of luck to you!

right you are cheese,but I think the swivel is on backwards,because the hook on the swivel faces the oposite way so it would be imposible to hook it that way,but I'll turn it around and see, I have learned that the fact that the part is on doesn't meanit's on RIGHT, Also would it hook with a spring or with a rod or what. I'll check JDparts again thanks,I'll let you know

Great! Gald you got it going, and thanks for the update. That is a great mower, and they don't make 'em like that anymore. The Kawasaki engines on them just keep running and running.
