2014 Craftsman/Husq 42" mower broken deck lift console

Just changing deck height today whilst mowing and the lift console broke off the fender on one end, or i lost a clip or something.  I see new ones for sale but it doesn't show how they attach and if they come with that hardware.  I am, not really sure if mine is busted or if i just lost a clip.  Anyone know how these attach?

    Need the model number form the serial number tag to look-up the part and to see how they attached it.

    Appreciate the help but I got this figured out.  Turns out this was a trivial issue... for a change. There is a metal base plate screwed into the fender into which the plastic gate clips. The base plate has a tab on the front that inserts into the fender slot whilst the screw holds it in at the rear. Apparently I jammed the shifter too hard on the gate and caused the tab to pop loose of the fender. Pulled the plate out, straightened the tab a bit with some pliers and re-installed. Have to be gentler on the shifting, I suppose. This isn't a NHRA dragster.
     
    BTW, thanks for the help with the cam.  Motor is starting great.  I hope that compression release mechanism on the new cam holds up for awhile.  Seems awful flimsy to me.
