SOURCE: need a blade engagement cable diagram for a 2002 craftsman lt1000

as far as i know, there is no diagram available for the cable replacement. it is covered briefly in the owner's manual, but the best way to do it is to study carefully how the old one is routed, and replace a step at a time

SOURCE: blades won't engage but belts are fine

If the cable is broken, replace it. If not have someone sit in the seat and engage the blades (WITH THE ENGINE OFF) while you check to see if the belt tightens up when it is engaged. It is possible that it is dirty and/or rusty and not letting the engagement pulley do its job

SOURCE: PTO cable is real loose. My deck blade will engage

Sounds like the belt is stretched or the tension spring has become detached or stretched. Also check that the pulleys are mounted solidly and run flat and do not wobble. Also check that the idler are has not cracked and twisted (mine did last month and then threw a chukof steel out sideways).

First check to make sure you can turn each blade by hand, with the mower off. If neither blade spindle is frozen remove the deck and make sure all the pulleys move freely and function like they should. The cable should have been operating a spring loaded pulley arm that applied tension to the deck belt to make the blades function. Some times build up with block that from moving or rust will make it stick.

SOURCE: Found large spring at end

There are 4 pulleys on your deck. Two for the blades, these are the big ones on the outsides. To the insides there are two, one on left side is an idler and the one on the right is a tenioning pulley that hooks to the blade engage lever throught the cable you found. Look on top of this pulley and see if it has a piece sticking up. If so the spring at the end of the cable attaches here. Slide it over. You also need to find the clip that goes through the little hole in the end that keeps it from sliding off. Make sure that the cable is properly routed and attached near the back of the deck. If it is still attached, good, if not you will have to find that pin also.

If this is helpful, please rate.

Mower blades won't engage


Did the smoking stop when you disengaged the blades? If so it is most likely your belt that is smoking. Make sure all the blades turn freely by hand to ensure you have not hit anything that may have bent a shaft on one of the blades. If one of the shafts is bent and wont turn FREELY, the belt driving the blades would slip and start smoking as it tried to turn them.

How to install cable


Well I am not sure if your lawnmower is similar to mine - when I want to engage the blades, I push the lever up and lock it in place.

I just replaced my cable - took about an hour. On the other side of ther lever there is a cable attached that goes to the cam to engage the blades.

You will need to look and see how it is secured at the lever and at the cam down where the blades are.

Mine was pretty easy to remove - there was a tab that locked the cable to the lever frame where the lever is located. At the cam to engage the blades there was a pin that needed to be pulled out to release the cable.

That was pretty much it. Look on the internet for a parts diagram of your particular lawnmower. You will need to include the mfg, and model -

The parts diagram should show you where it's connected. Make sure you have the new part in hand before you start to work on it.

If you don't, you may have to wait a day or two to get the part from a local supplier - if you're lucky they may have the part in stock.

Another reason to get the parts diagram is the part numbers are listed for all parts - when you call for a part use the part number for the item you want to purchae.

Hope this info helps.

Two springs broke underneath the riding lawn mower 3800 and we don't know where to replace them at, they engage the gears.


First make sure you can still engage the blades.Many mowers use a cable attached to a spring to engage the blades.If that is one of the springs,you need a new cable.For the other I will need more information,like what kind of mower is it?How many blades?Another thing to look for is worn or torn holes that the springs attach to.
