I have attached the directions to replace the cable on your tractor. Basically, the cable spring will connect to the top of the stud for the idler on the right side of the mower deck. You'll see 2 idlers kind of towards the center of the mower deck. The one on the right side has a longer stud with a hole through it. There should be a flat washer that sits on top of the threads and then the spring, now put the clip through to keep the spring from coming off and that's it.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

my riding lawnmower stopped dead while mowing the other day When you engage the clutch the motor dies What is wrong/


Your Tractor uses an Operator Presence (seat) switch that will cause engine to stall if blades are engaged and there is no operator present in the seat. If ample amount of weight is not kept on the seat during operation or the operator is leaning forward the tractor will stall because the Operator Presence (seat) switch senses that the operator is not completely on the seat.

To check Operator Presence (seat) switch:

  1. Lift seat.
  2. Locate wires that connect to Operator Presence (seat) switch under the seat.
  3. Disconnect and clean any debris in the switch connector (tractor side).
  4. Reconnect wires to Operator Presence (seat) switch.
  5. Sit on tractor seat.
  6. Start tractor.
  7. Engage blades.
If it continues to die when your release the brake/clutch the Operator Presence switch may have failed. See wiring diagram below.
