Product Description ?

This genuine OEM replacement part is used on walk behind/push mowers. This cable consists of a metal wire cable with z-type bent ends and rubberized cover/body. The control cable stops the blade when the control handle is released on walk-behind mowers. If the cable is broken it will cause the brake to not release even when the lever is pressed.

You may need pliers to complete this repair.

• First you want to see where tje old cable is attached to the motor assembly.
• Just remove the cable end there and install the new one,
• Now you can run the new cable up to the control handle
• Then just as the old cable, put the z-shaped end through the hole in the control handle
• Once both ends are attached, just push the upper mount assembly of the old cable out of the hole in the upper handle
• Tie the cable in place just as the old one was, but leave enough clearance and free play to avoid over-bending and breaking the new cable

  • 37.5-inch casing length, 51-inch total length
  • Classification: Part
  • Weight: 0.10 lbs.
  • Shipping: Ships Worldwide

    Removed old cable and replaced with the new one , simple enough ... It is more of an engineering or design flaw really , there is no way to adjust the tension even with a new cable . It doest take much for the mower to shut itself off .
