Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

On the lower end of the cable where it actually goes down through the frame there is an adjustment knob that you can turn in order to adjust the cable tension. I am including a diagram to better help you locate this, it is part reference #41.

Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.

Please take a moment to rate your experience.

is there a engagement cable adjustment
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 11 months ago.

Based on the parts diagram of the machine, Yes there is.

That is the information that I just sent to you. The adjustment is at the bottom or lower end of the cable. You can turn item reference #41 which will adjust the cable in or out depending on which way you turn it.
