I HAVE A Craftsman 85 lb. Broadcast Spreader (486.243223) I JUST RECEIVED A NEW FLOW CONTROL LEVER W/CABLE THAT I ORDERED AND I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO UNINSTALL THE OLD CABLE FROM THE HOPPER AND REINSTALL THE NEW CABLE.
I did some research on the spreader and I was unable to locate information that would be helpful with regards to your question at this time. Your expert will answer within two business days with detailed information. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
I do not have a clear enough drawing to see how the end of the cable is secured to the hopper. Some of these cables use a screw for that and others will snap in place. The very end of the cable (wire end) will have a "Z" shape at the end that will hook into the door so it can be moved when the control lever is moved.
