OK, guys. I oughta know this, but I don't. On my '00 9650STS, just aft of the engine on the engine frame platform floor, up under the over-the-engine ladder, there's a u-channeled strap, about 4-ft long, held in place with a pin, that I'm going nuts over trying to figure out what it is. Kinda reminds me of a strap that the xx00-series used to have to keep the auger in place during OTR transport. No mention in operator's manual. Can't find it in parts manual. Can't see anywhere it would attach to the auger or the body. As the son of a former owner of 3 JD stores, and having worked in parts for about 8 years or so, this kind of crap pisses me off! Somebody please enlighten me, and make me feel foolish (all at the same time!). Thanx in advance.
