Perhaps I don't understand the part names. Is the fan shroud in the back facing the operator? I'll have to take another look after I warm up but I don't recall seeing anything on the left side (as operator faces forward) below the carb. It's got to be there somewhere though!

its all under the carb area on my machine....which is obviously left side from operators position. but in relation to the pics, the wire on my machine goes behind the fan shroud to the right or rear/operators position in the pics. im guessing it goes behind the flywheel to the coil .

Good call nwcove!



Damned mice. I keep my snowblower in a shed in my back yard in the summer and my tractor in there in the winter. I just can't keep the mice off my machines. Any recommendations for that?

And what a pain it was getting that shroud off to find this. My hands are frozen. I'll repair the wire and reassemble tomorrow morning when it's light and maybe a bit warmer.

For the mice.
Go to home Depot or Lowes and get wire fence like this Everbilt 1/4 in. x 2 ft. x 5 ft. 23-Gauge Galvanized Steel Hardware Cloth-308231EB - The Home Depot
It has to be 1/4 inch holes. Plug/cover every access hole with the wire and staple it in place. Mice can get through a small opening. The biggest challenge will be sealing the door/doors.

And a couple of glue boards along the walls just in case.

I'm back in business. I soldered a short extension onto the chewed cable and crimped it in the angled spade connector. After getting everything back together she started right up. Stupid mice...
