Got my x758 back from having the 3-point hitch put on and when I loosened the depth stop to see if it was working, a small spring came bouncing out the back. Noticed a nut under the tractor. Pulled up the installation manual and determined it was a compression spring and nut off the end of the depth stop screw. I assumed the installer didn't tighten the nut enough. I put the spring and nut back on (it was a pain). Hooked up the rake and used it for a few minutes and decided I needed to lower the stop. Loosened the depth stop screw and it popped off again. Can't find the spring this time.
Does this spring serve any real purpose? Anyone else have this issue?
