Drive cable broke
1. Put plastic over fuel tank and put cap back on.
2. Removed old drive cable from drive while mower turned on side---the hardest part is prying out the plastic grommet that holds the cable in place through a hole in mower deck.
3. Thread the cable through the cable tabs on mower handle.
4. Open up EZ plastic pack on mower handle--the screws are six point star heads and you need to have that in your screwdriver base.
5.Remove that part of old cable and put the new cable in the slot---make sure that the nut that fits in the slot is all the way up to the end otherwise it won't fit in slot.
6.Reassemble EZ plastic pack.
7. Start the mower and check the drive ---all good.
