Default LT 1040 PTO not engaging properly

My LT1040 doesn't engage the blades properly. the spindles and belt are new. The lever which engages the blade is a bit bent and doesn't pull the cable forward properly. I am going to replace the cable as well. but not sure how to get the lever out .
Wonder if anyone has seen this before?? If anyone has a trick to get the lever out, please advise. I'm hoping it's not as difficult as it looks.

Isn't it that the lever/engages an idler to keep the belt tight? ? Are you talking Part #42?

I had a similar situation with my Z-turn and found out it was just a bad safety switch. Replaced all 3 of those boogers and no more problem.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
