I imagine the lift links to be a piece of steel with a couple holes in them. Ask a local welding service to make your lift links. Typically you will not find part numbers for a part so eazily reproduced.

SOURCE: The mower deck clutch cable broke so blades will

I just got the kit 175067. Have the old one off except for where it's attached to the lever, schedule and weather has kept me from going further. Very simple to reconnect things at the pulley and above but not too sure how to connect the rest onto the lever and haven't had a chance to get a good look at how the old one might be connected yet. Should be a simple fix.

Lever to lower and lift blade deck doesn't work. looks like mechanism that you push in on lever lost a bolt or something. deck doesn't lift or lower

Most of these mowers comes with an owners manual and in the manual there is also a parts description, look there. If you don't have the manual, go to cub cadet website.

How do I get incline to go back down manually

Hi Holly, please let us know what model of treadmill you have. Basically, there should be a 3-pin connector from the lift motor to a 3-pin plug, with rather large pins, near a couple or Triacs (Transistor looking things) that are bolted together. If you find this correct, you can turn off the treadmill, carefully reverse this cable 180-degrees, and theoretically you will be driving the opposite winding of the one causing you to lift incorrectly. This only gets the deck back down, and won't stop your troubles, as the assembly will now be trying to drive the lift down.
There can be a few causes...
1) "Up" lift button stuck
2) console electronics gone haywire(unusual)
3) lift assembly feedback lost, missing, incorrect(bad lift)
4) failing control board Triacs(either/or failing causes trouble)

Lasstly you can contact jatinah electronics for additional help. Good Luck!

Why does only part of my control for catnapper power lift chair work

The plug can be disconnected from the box. There is a box that connects the motor, the remote and the lift. Make sure all connections are together..
