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

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.
