Ariens 48''

I have a 1987 Ariens GT18 Tractor with a 48" blower. This blower has a cable that rotates the chute back and forth. The cable was broken when I bought it and I have been trying to figure out how to replace it. Does anyone know where I might find some instructions on how do route it properly?

Thanks

Some wrap around twice the chute before the turning shaft.
Here's a link to a few photos.

Welcome to SBF. Sounds like that is quite the snow handling tractor/blower combination. Could you share some pictures of it when you get a chance?

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

Hi lfasche,
Welcome to the SBF. I have a GT20 with the same blower. I replaced the cable when I reconditioned it. You should be able to get a copy of the manual for your blower by going to the Ariens GT tractor site. You will have to join the site to download manuals, but you will find it very helpful. Gardentractortalk.com Good luck. MH
