Throttle cable for Craftsman mower # 917.275520

Talked with Mark T on July 27th for the part # of the cable. He told me it was 170545. I ordered and received it but it is the wrong one, to short. My cable is 39 1/4" long. The one I got is 23 1/4 long. Help!

Confusion on a part or receiving the wrong part can be really frustrating. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit. At this time, I was unable to locate information that would be helpful in regards to your question. Your expert will answer within 24 to 48 hours with detailed information. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you received the wrong part. I looked up the part number from the manual for your model. I posted the page below that I found it on. Click on the image to enlarge it. I recommend looking for the part number on the cable you received. The part number should be 170545. If the part number is wrong or it does not have a part number, I recommend reordering it. Just call the 1-800 on the shipping label. They will be able to assist you. Before you reorder the part, look for a part number on the original cable.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

I checked the cable and the part # on it is the same as ordered. I called Sears and they can't seem to figure this out either. No responce from them in 4 days. Don't quite know what to do at this time.

I recommend checking for the part number on the original throttle cable. If it different I recommend ordering that part number. I would also recommend obtaining the model number under the seat. If the last digit is different, that maybe why we are coming up with the wrong part. Please let me know what you find.

Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

No part # on the original. Model # is correct. Sears did contact me with a different part # that I have ordered but not received as of yet. Hopefully it will be the correct one.
