They are kinda sloppy. Mine is anyway. You should be able to get to it from the back end to see why it is sloppy.

Confused. The pto lever passes through a hole in the sheet metal to the left of and slightly to the rear of the operator's seat. There is supposed to be gourmet in the hole to keep the lever from rattling - frequently missing.

If the pto lever is in the correct location, it will not be laying on the mower deck or rubbing on the fender.

As previously stated, they are sloppy, just the nature of the beast.
