Take a look at the following illustration, please. It will show you the attachment points for the cable to get it to work properly.
illustration where housing guide is, is currently being used by clutch cable. Need to where else can I connect the blade cable?
The blade cable has a lever that engages the blade to to cut/mow. That cable has snap and is different from the original cable. It did not have a lining like the original blade engagement cable. The cable strand is uncovered unlike the purchase replacement. According to Poulan Pro repair deck diagram, the key number is XXXXX and the part number reference is 169676, which is reference with a different replacement partno info on the internet, partno 175067. I was under the impression that the replacement part can be used for the blade engagement cable. I hope I've clarified what I am trying fix.
The model of my Poulan Mower is P017542LT
Yes I did receive a new carriage bolt , cable tie and instruction sheet. However I find the instructions a chore just to replace a clutch cable, which I thought would be a simple task.
I agree it should be. But there was an engineering change requiring these modifications in order to use the new cable. Here's the instruction sheet just in case.
The factory is in it to make money, too, so they don't include extra parts for no reason. Unfortunately, since the original version of the cable is no longer supplied, you'll need to make the modfications detailed. It should work fine once you do.
Please let me know...
