Blade engaging lever holes

My Bobcat cat has one hole in the engaging lever and 5 or 6 holes on a bracket welded to the handle bars. What kind of hardware am I missing here? Just a nut and bolt in the lever to hold the lever in the engaged position? There was nothing there when I got it and I can't find a good picture on the web.

Doesn't look like anything is missing, The extra holes are likely for another application or they didn't want to tool up for two different brackets and used the same on both sides......




When the PTO linkage is adjusted properly, The last 1/2" or so of handle movement should over center the engagement idler arm and snap in the engaged position. Then it snaps back out when disengaging.....

Part #2 on mine has a third hole in it that lines up with those half moon shaped pieces with the 5 holes in it. Thanks for the diagram.

As mentioned, Another application..... You don't want to have detent notches in the engagement handle assembly, Full engage and full disengage nothing in-between......

Of course. That could be dangerous if the blades got stuck on. Yikes!

That's what the operator present switches are for on the handlebars, If you have to shut down quick release either handlebar.....
