Replacement of drive control and cable on Craftsman self propelled lawn mower

by Manage My Life Last activity date:
February 10th, 2011

I have a Craftsman 917.377590 self propelled lawn mower. I need to replace the drive control lever and cable. The problem I have is that I can't figure out how to disconnect the cable from the bracket by the transmission. See attached link for a picture.

How do I remove the cable from the bracket? It seems to be held firmly in place but I can't tell how to remove it from the bracket.

When I put the new drive control lever and cable on, how do I adjust it so it puts the mower in gear when I put the lever forward and pull the handle down?

Are there any service manuals available on these mowers? All I can find are owners manuals which are pretty much worthless when it comes to servicing this equipment.

Thank you for your question.

I have checked the picture you have submitted. I copied the picture and put red arrows where you have to squeeze with needle nose pliers. Once you have the tabs squeezed, you can pull the cable housing out of the bracket. Then drop the cable out of the slot in the bracket. I have marked the slot in blue. Next, unhook the spring from the lever on the gear case.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
