Pull the rear fender assembly off, a little work but will save time & have good access. Or drain gas & flip up on back end.

Looked up as guess by year, looks like no plate.

I cannot tell much from the pic, but the panel I have circled should be held on with 2 screws, if so, remove them. The forward/reverse lever should be in the center. If not, see if you can take a better pic of that area.mtd.JPG

My MTD mower stopped going into higher speeds. It used to go to all 7.
Recently I tightened the brake adjuster nut. Could over tightening it be the problem or should I look elsewhere
