The spring broke and now I want to remove the lever in order to put a new spring back on. It is stuck. I have soaked it with penetrating oil and tried tapping it with a hammer but it won't budge.Anyone know what I can try.

Make sure you loosen the clamp nut at the bottom. The lever is splined on the shaft so hitting it with a hammer probably isn't going to do a lot of good unless they're light taps to help work the penetrating oil in.

If you use heat, remember that your gas line is real close by...so probably not a great idea!

Try levering gently between the arm and the transaxle case or getting onto it with a gear puller.

Got it. Lots of soaking in PB blaster and heating. Finaly found a short nail puller with a 90degree head that I was able to lever it loose with.
Thanks Very Happy
