I think you're asking where the clutch cable attaches to the deck. It slips over the top of the mounting bolt on the idler pulley with a cotter pin through the hole on the top to keep it in place. It is the pulley that swivels to tighten the belt. Hope that helps..........

Clutch cable routing for a craftsman 971289010 lawnmower


The PTO cable will come out the chassis straight down from the engagement lever on the right side of the dash panel. Will be fastened to the frame on the right side in front of the rear wheel with a zip tie. Loop over the brake rod and attach to the deck on a tab at the rear center of the deck. A hair pin will secure it there. The inner cable continues from there under the belt and the spring hooks into the engagement bracket. There may be two hole for the spring to hook into. They are marked 38 or 42.

Mower deck clutch cable removal (model 917.28722). Detail provided in manual does not seem to match product. Need to remove this in order to remove deck and replace belt. Belt has squealed since new.


You should not need to remove the deck or the clutch cable just to change the belt.

  • ensure mower clutch lever is in the off position
  • lift the front of the tractor approx 24 or more inches.
  • lower the mower deck as far as it will go
  • locate & remove the cotter pin from the right (discharge) side mower lift arm where it attaches to the rear of the mower
  • release the lift arm from the mower deck to allow it to drop (it will hang from the other 3 points)
You should now have plenty of clearance to change the belt. Remove the belt from the engine pulley first and replace the new belt on the engine pulley last that will make it easier to change the belt.

If this is helpful please vote yes, Thank You!!

Broken manual clutch cable


You can go to www.Searspartsdirect.com and put you units model number in and order the cable yourself. They can ship it right to your house and you can swap the cable yourself with just simple hand tools.

You can see the details on the idler attachment in the parts schematic when you are ordering your new cable.

Good luck and be careful!
