Welcome to the forum Opticalmike. It would be a lot of help if you included the make/model of your machine and indicated which wire you mean.
Since most of the cables can be traced back to their controls on the dash, I'm assuming you mean the one I've marked in your photo.

Yes, sorry the model is a 30 inch Craftsman with a 13 hp engine it's about 5-6 years old. I am indeed inquiring about the adjustable wire you have marked.

Mike...
Post a model number ...536__ __etc. so we can pull up a parts breakdown. There are just too many machines out there to know with any degree of certainty what you are pointing to. Your model will be displayed on a tag somewhere on the blower body. MH

Mike,
The Craftsman number produced zero. If yours is a Husky, it could be Model 1330SB. That does produce a parts breakdown http://www.husqvarna.com/ddoc/HUSI/H..._I0802065_.pdf
but it doesn't show the cable or rod in your photo. Sorry I couldn't help. MH

This is as close as I could come up with, in a US equivalent. And it does not show, or I could not see the rod in question.

Parts and Diagrams for MTD 31AH55TH799 (247.88830) (2009)

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Is your machine a hydrostatic drive ?? If so that might be the rod to put it into neutral to move it when the engine is off. If so it should just be a short rod and nothing would be attached to it.

Thank you all for time spent trying to identify the purpose of that adjustable wire. I have emailed the previous owner and sent him a link to this thread...hopefully he may know.....also I now see I have a link to the owners manual for this craftsman and/or Husqvarna
