Craftsman 536.918300 10hp control cable

I just left a friends house and he has this snowblower. I gave it to him years ago but now the control cable is shot. I remember reading on the forum about getting the cable from mcmaster-carr. He has since butchered the original cable so its hard to get a measurement. Dose anyone by any chance have a mcmaster number i can give him to replace it.

The speed control cable?
Sears show them in stock, not cheap. $46.64

Home Depot and Lowes sell generic braided steel cables by the foot pretty cheap. I did that for a lawnmower brake cable reusing the plastic sheath.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Use the Sears part number, mcmaster-carr's must have cross reference?

Might be cheaper, but the HD or Lowes sounds like a cheaper way to go.

Thanks, its the cable that is item 54 on diagram and its no longer available. I did get some good info and yea new cable and fresh ends is the way to go. It's not an insurmountable problem but definitely not a unbolt rebolt. Gonna have to help him. I've ask some question on this forum on several problems and always go ta good response, this forum has a great group of guys. Thanks for the ideas.

That looks like a straight up cable. Nothing special about it. I bet even a steel rod would work. For the lawnmower I used $1.50 worth of steel cable and took a couple bolts and drilled holes through them to make cable clamps. That beat paying the $25 sears wanted for a new one.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I think your right cable fed through the sheath and new ends and good to go.
