Sorry, I thought all Tea"s were standard motors. The outside linkage pic would be great. I had it apart two years ago when trying to address a prestone in oil problem and had no issue at that time. Getting older the memory must be failing. My manual does not show the set up clearly. As for the prestone in the oil, someone had butchered a sleeve gasket repair with silicone prior to me buying. Problem is now resolved with the proper parts, thanks to Easy Tractor in Brampton Ontario.
