I wanted to post the Part Number and directions for anyone who may need it.
Part # 746-04173C
and it is called the Deck Engage Cable
, not the PTO Cable, as I posted in the title.
Expensive little sucker.....$25-$38 depending where you get it. Very thin, cheaply made cable/ OEM part. Makes me wonder if this is done on purpose, to make money......What am I thinking?....of course it is.
Anyway, piece of cake to change. Remove battery and battery hangers and work down through that hole. Put large spring on the front pulley bridge first, then about a foot down the cable snap oblong black fitting into hole and install cotter pin, then other end of cable "s" hook to back side frame, then round white clip to frame, then cable holder tab on frame. ( You will see all this when you remove the old one)
Sounds complicated but it isn't. Remember, a digital camera is your friend when repairing anything. I take pics of everything I tear apart, BEFORE I tear it apart.
15 minutes tops to remove old cable and install new.
Hope this helps someone.
