I'm asking Sears Holding Corporate to put this spring, part number 532140921 back into production. Original part number, 140921.
It is called a brake rod spring. It also operates the clutch, can't move forward or reverse! It only costs $3.30!
Or,
Send me the detailed print including the type of material, size, length, width, and I'll get a manufacturer to have it made myself...

@Ken George Given that Sears is back in bankruptcy and they've sold off most of their assets, you might want to reach out to a local, old school mower shop. They might know of a replacement part for you.

Sears never manufactured any of their Craftsman brand products. Their riding mowers were made by Husqvarna, who used that part in a number of their models. It is no longer manufactured, but if you call Husqvarna they may still have some in stock.

Most large hardware and home supply stores will have a large selection of springs, including sets of many different sizes. You can probably find the same or similar spring there. You may even find it on Amazon. If the part is no longer manufactured, you also may find new old stock as suggested above, either at Husquvarna headquarters or at a local dealer. If you really want it, Husqvarna can probably get you the specs.
