Q:

I need instructions for installing a drive cable on a Craftsman walk behind mower model 917.376721. 917376721 Craftsman Lawn mower

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when needing to replace your drive cable on your mower. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found instructions to assist you.

Remove the cover on the drive belt that is located on the front, left, top side of the deck as shown on page 15 of your owner's manual. Here is a link for your owner's manual in case you need it: Owner's Manual .

Remove the spring attachment of the cable from the drive lever on the handle as shown in the first photograph of the image below. Tip the mower on its side (to the left) and unhook the cable connection on the bottom of the gear case as shown in the second photograph below. Remove the clip that holds the cable in place on the top of the deck as shown in the third photograph. You should then be able to remove any clips and cable ties that secure the cable on the handle and remove the cable. Reverse the procedure to install the new drive control cable.

Let me know if this helps.Thank you for your question. Have a great day.
