Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I believe the part you're referring to is the engine brake control bracket, which is part number 796136. I have posted a picture of it below for reference.

Jeff...Thank You So Much For Your Response...After Looking At Your Pic...I Don't Believe There's Anything Missing There??? But That The Operator Presence Bar Is Missing (Which I Believe: In Combination W/The Engine Zone Control Cable - Controls The Bracket's Lever Opening/Closing???) & Whoever Had Lawnmower B4 Me (I Found It On Curb) Tried To Override Having To Replace It By Pulling The Lever On The Bracket Together W/A Piece Of Hanger?! Overall The Mower's In Pretty Good Shape (Very Little Rust), It Had No Spark Plug, Operator Presence Bar & The Starter Cord Had A Make Shift Handle That Will Not Reach The Handle's Pull Cord Holder? Should I Replace The Starter Cord Assembly Or Does It Really Have To Extend To The Handle? This Is My 1st Rebuild/Restore: I've Cleaned/Replaced Everything Else (i.e. Air/Fuel Filters, Carburetor, Hoses/Tanks etc) But For Personal Safety, I Felt It A Good Idea To Order/Replace The Operator Presence Bar & Maybe The Starter Cord Assembly?! Any Suggestion Would Be Greatly Appreciated...Thank You!!!
