Its a bit of a pain - but with ordinary tools, it can be done. Get the replacement cable first. You can see how the bottom spring wraps around the cable with a universal joint sort of arrangement. Remove the belt protector (three screws from the top deck; if you have a battery compartment, that will temporarily need to go. Release the old cable from the top and middle attachment points, then unhook the spring from the traction lever. You might need to destroy the old cable lock to the mower deck to remove the old cable. Remove the plastic cup next to the cable where it exits the mower deck. Replace parts in this order: New spring/cable to the traction lever, snap in plastic interface to mower deck, small plastic cup top cable attachment, then middle attachment. You might need to move the middle attachment after you give it a test run. Replace belt cover and battery compartment if necessary. A lot of steps but, except for a difficult fit to get the spring hooked up, nothing is really difficult. I paid about $30 for the replacement cable from a local dealer; Overpriced, but I wanted to get the job done today.

How to repair a clutch cable on a toro recycler mower


Did the cable break? Or did it just stop working? In general you have to figure if it came off, break or did the adjustment slip. Readjust if necessary or replace the hole cable or re install it correctly. Simple Question, so many answers. And if all else fails, take it to a lawn mower repair shop.

Front drive wheels won't engage


Is it possible that the belt has either broken or come off the pulleys? Next step would be to remove the cover and see if there is something preventing engagement or if you see any broken parts. May even be as simple as lubricating the cable/levers.

Where is air filter on toro recycler


To know for sure, I need to know what kind of engine is on it. Toro only makes the mower, the engine is made by another company. Assuming it's a Briggs and Stratton in the 4-6 hp range, it would be behind a flat vertical cover on the right side with one screw at the top. Part # 491588
