How do I replace the Deck Engagement Cable on my Craftsman Mower (247.28904)?

I recently replaced my factory installed mower blades with a mulching kit. I attached the mulching kit and reattached the deck and the Deck Engagement cable. The Cable broke within 5 hrs of operation... The deck seemed to vibrate more than usually and I believe it was improper installation that caused it to break in the first place.

Can you send detailed instructions on how the new deck engagement cable should be installed?

Also, I may over overtightened one of the blade spindle pulleys when putting the new blade on... Should the blades be able to turn both directions easily? One of the blades turns both directors when a little bit of force is applied. The other one will only turn in one direction. Any help or tips will be appreciated.

Repairs gone bad is something everyone has experienced at some point but you are correct, you want to get it right the second time. The expert will review and respond but if you need to check any diagrams that are in the manual, you can also access it online at this site. I attached the link below.
