Ariens 722 Broken Auger Control Cable

I have been happy with my Ariens 722 single stage snow blower which has run fine for several years now. After a heavy snow, the auger control cable broke off at the end closest to the paddles. When I look at the zoomed-in picture of the replacement part
Code:
https://parts.ariens.com/product-p/06943300.htm
it looks like a "z" on the end. When I look at my cable now there is no "z" so I'm assuming that's where it broke.

I'd like to try and replace it myself. I found the part number "Ariens 06943300 Clutch Control Cable" so I could order a replacement. My problem is, the user manual that I downloaded for the 722 does not contain any diagram or picture that shows where the cable attaches or how it attaches.

I do see a hole on the back of the part that I think (if I'm reading the parts manual right) is called the idler. I'm guessing that maybe it attaches there, in that hole, but I'd like to be sure.

There are a number of videos on Youtube, I'll bet you can find one close if not exact for your situation.


Good luck.

I couldn't find any applicable videos when I looked (before I came here). There were ones for other models (cable replacement) but not a single stage one like I have. Anyway, I found a local parts store today that had the replacement cable in stock. I stuck the end with the z connector into the hole in the idler part that I thought was maybe where it went. It was, as I got everything back together now and it's working fine

Congrats on getting it fixed and for coming back with the results. So many times people have issues, get help and suggestions then never come back unless it failed. Successful results are useful too, they may help someone else down the road.
