Customer Question

Just replace my drive cable on my Honda HRX217 HXA mower. Looks like the new lever arm supplied is adjust correctly. It has full travel. But.... the mower will not move. Is my transmission broken or is there another adjustment that I need to make.

This drive system has a belt from engine to the rear axle. Make sure the belt is still on and has tension. Small sticks and debris in lawn can roll the belt of while cutting.

Normally I would hit the accept button without a doubt but..... If I was handi enough to
change out a drive cable don't you think I would have checked the
belt first. Don't mean to be rude but that is not worth the money.
