SOURCE: I need a diagram showing how the throtel cable

The throttle cable doesn't attach to the carburetor. The 'z' bend in the end of the cable sticks in the white plastic slide at the bottom of the control plate on the left rear side of the engine and the cable is held in place by a clamp behind it.

SOURCE: my craftsman riding lawnmower 42"

The first thing to check is the wheels on the back corners of the deck....amke sure that they are set at the same height and that the bearings are not out of the wheel, which would allow the deck to sink lower on one side.
If all of that checks out then you have problems under the deck....
The bearings that hold the blades can wear allowing one of the blades to drop, or one of the blades could be bent which could cause it to cut fix that bearings will have to be replaced or the blades will have to be replaced if bent.....

These would be the causes for your mower to cut unevenly...

Have a Craftsman LT1000 and the discharge pipe on the grass collection tube continually gets clogged. The grass is not wet or overly thick and the blades are sharp. Engine RPS's good and i always cut...

Inspect the inside surface of the discharge tube. If you do not find any hangups, then I would wonder how fast you are mowing. If you are going full speed, I would recommend that you slow just a little. I was just thinking, have you been doing the same thing for a long time and recently have this problem develop. So, give good inspection. I do not know what type of bagger you have, but is the air able to escape the bagger, if it is not then it sets you up for a clog. If you can not find anything on detailed inspection of bagger system, there are sprays for under the deck of lawnmowers to minimize the chance of grass clinging to the underside of decks, you could try applying that to the ducting of your bagger. I hope this is helpful.

Need your assistance please
try this link, they don't deal specifically with craftsman parts, though they do have aftermarket suitable substitutes for craftsmen. This website has excellent illustrated parts breakdowns for numerous other riding lawnmowers though and I'll bet that something like MTD or White Outdoor is exactly the same as your mower. I have a White outdoor 42 inch riding mower and have changed numerous parts using these illustrations. Good luck
