Springs on belt Guides? Model W

Recommended Posts

I have been working on my Model W walk behind. I was adjusting the belt stops and found they wouldn't tighten adequately. There is a 1/2" long compression spring putting pressure against the guides instead of a lockwasher. Since the spring will give, it will not allow them to be tightened. I ended up doing away with the spring and went with a shorter bolt, lockwasher, and flatwasher. The springs are shown in the parts breakdown and are 100% OEM. Am I overlooking something here?
