Wade,

Thanks again for your support.

Finally got the old cable unhooked from the transmission and the new one connected (biggest problem was getting the old plastic housing out of the tab).

All is well now, just a lot of novice time to get it finished and running.

The number is still not coming up for me. It may just be because it's another brand and not in the Sears system.





The cables on mower usually will hook into the transmission and then the plastic housing end of the cable will snap into a hole or tab. On the upper end the cable can connect a variety of ways depending on the type engage it's using.





If the mower is a rear wheel drive model, it's going to be pretty complicated to connect down at the transmission. I did one a few weeks back and had to take the transmission out in order to connect the cable. It ended up being about an hour job for a $20 cable.

Double check the model number you gave as it is not coming up as a valid number in our system. If you did give the correct model number, you may need to contact Troy Bilt (MTD products) as I cannot see anything under that model number.





Thank you for using Manage My Life!
