Customer reply replied 8 years ago
the model id has been scatched off and we have the older transmission. when i took the unit apart the spring fell out of the cowling and the clutch cable cable was hooked to the mower body through the back end. the cable that is on this mower has the barrel type ends(top and bottom)
