Q:

need schematics for drive control handle 917378871 Craftsman Lawn mower

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the drive assembly. If the control came in pieces, I recommend contacting the part supplier to have then exchange the part for you. It should have come in one piece. If you would like to attempt to assemble the control yourself I have added an image below that shows how the control is assembled. If you would like a close up any particular area please let me know I will be happy to get it for you.

Once the control is reassembled, secure it to the upper handle with one bolt. Next, remove the belt cover at the front of the mower. With it removed you can see the other end of the cable. Use a pair of pliers to squeeze the tabs securing the old cable. Once they are squeezed, pull the cable out of the holder, and unhook the spring. Then install the new cable in the reverse order.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
