Snowblower auger cable broke
I read the repair directions: "Follow the old cable and replace with the new." However, the exploded diagram and the video don't show where the actual cable goes into the snowblower. Once the cable goes into the housing, there is no diagram to show that there is indeed a pulley, not visible without removing the housing in which it sits, nor does the diagram show how the cable goes into the housing. Once I figured that out it wasn't too difficult. I had to take move of the machine apart than was indicated. The most difficult task was getting the old spring off the auger control. The instructions are just not clear, more detail would have saved a lot of frustration and language rarely heard in my garage. Didn't help that there was a foot of snow waiting to be shoveled.

No special instructions given. Plain old common sense. Just follow the path of broken cable. Then replace it with the new one.

    Exact replacement part
    The cable is a life saver, I thought I was going to need to buy a new snow blower because Craftsman decided that they weren't going to carry parts for my machine any longer. Granted it is 9 years old, but really? No parts? Then I remembered using this website for parts for an older weedeater. This cable fits my craftsman 30" walk behind snow blower, not just fits but it was an exact match! as in Identical! The hardest part of the entire install was to get the rear belly pan off of the machine. Cable was installed without any tools, just clip it on one end and route it to the handle bars and hook it on the lever...DONE. Simple, easy, great! Put the rear pan back on and go back to blowing snow. Thanks ereplacements, Your website is saved in my favorites now!!!
