UPDATE: This problem occurred again and this time I was unable to find the push nut and continue mowing. Apparently this part had worn to the point that it would no longer provide the friction necessary to stay in place. The loss of this part renders the tractor incapable of speed and direction adjustment. Which makes mowing impossible. It is an appalling representation of poor engineering on an otherwise well made tractor. For such a flaky part to be used to keep the motion control lever in place, instead of a nut and bolt is quizzical and infuriating at the same time. My frustration is further extended by the absurd cost to replace this push nut. The nut only costs $2 from Sears but shipping is an additional $9. The part is called a .625" push nut. While visiting a local hardware store, I was able to find a .625" push nut for .99 cents. Perfect! I bought five. Guess what? It doesn't fit. It is too small. The rod will not slip into it. So it must be a specialty part designed exclusively for mowers and not a standard push nut size. At this point, I am not willing to pay $11 for this part. Oh no, I'm far too determined and obtuse to take the easy route. I feel cheated by Craftsman so on I will battle to rig some method of securing this lever in place myself and gain vindication! Cheer me on :)
