Customer Question
How do I replace...

How do I replace the clutch cable on a 221 LHP? I know what has to be replaced, but can't see lower end to hook it up. Does the top cover have to come off? I've only taken off the bottom.

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Today. It broke off while I was using it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

IF I can.'

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I really need a step by step process to follow. I cannot see where it connects and it's 4 degrees outside!
