as per that picture are you trying to replace that cable or a different one? only ask because there are 2 cables as I'm sure you know. is the new cable the same length as the old one?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I think they are the same but the old one snapped off and was thrown away the cable I am replacing goes through a black round gasket and is listed as part number 4 on the parts diagram for the handle
Expert:  John Oliver replied 10 months ago.

What doesn't help as my blade brake cable runs under the mower and I have to take the blade the housing under the mower to access it and my blade brake cable is on the left side of mower when you are standing at the controls.

Expert:  John Oliver replied 10 months ago.
