thank you for your question.

i will be happy to assist you with replacing the lift lever.

  1. remove the battery and the battery tray.
  2. disconnect the lift links that are connected to the lift lever. there should be a r-pin in each one.
  3. remove the bolts that secure the right side plate that the lift lever goes through.
  4. remove the c-clips that secure the lift lever to the side plates. then remove the right side plate.
  5. remove the lift lever from the tractor.
  6. use a hammer and punch to drive the roll pin out of the inter wire of the lift lever.
  7. pull the inter wire out the top of the lift lever and remove the grip.
  8. reassemble the tractor in the reverse order.
