Thank you for the question on the drive cable for the walk behind mower.

You are probably right in think it is stretched out and will need to be replaced. I do not see a way to adjust this cable.

Because of its age the drive belt may be worn enough that it may need to be replaced and the cable cannot move the transmission enough to tighten the belt enough to drive the wheels.

I think I would suggest replacing the drive belt first.

Drive belt for mower model 917.378870 .

Drive control cable for mower model 917.378870 .

I hope this information will help.
