I have a Craftsman snowblower model 247.88700.1. The drive cable has become detached from where it goes in the snowblower.

There is a part that attaches the drive cable to the handle of the snowblower. The part came off and the drive cables tension was released. I have the part to go back on the handle to get the tension back, but I don't know where the drive cable attaches once its inside the snowblower. I can see where the auger cable goes, but I couldn't find where the drive cable attaches.

Mark, thank you for your response, but the cable I need to reattach is the drive cable, not the auger cable. I had seen a different picture of the auger information in my manual, but it wasn't helpful either.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the snow blower. I was able to find an image of how the auger cable connects. I was not able to find the drive cable image. That should be ok I will try to explain it to you. The best way to connect the drive cable is to tip the snow blower onto its nose. Be careful the gas might leak. Just place an approved container down the catch the gas. Once the snow blower is tipped up, you should be able to see the transmission. The cable connects to the lever on the transmission. The housing of the cable should be still in the cable holder. Then reconnect the end of the cable to the lever on the transmission.

I hope this is helpful.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
