Trigger lock for left wheel - Ariens 927E


I've got an Ariens 927E (year 2008 model). A great machine except for the differential locking feature. It has the silver trigger on the left handle to lock the left wheel when moving. I've followed the directions in the Ariens manual to adjust and it works for a few tries and then sporadically works. I'm pulling the trigger as the machine is moving forward or backward. I've removed the bottom plate and confirmed that it seems to be working properly (or at least everything is moving, nothing frozen). Anyone have any advice on how to get it work regularly or maybe there's an alternate adjustment procedure? Thanks.

same problem

Pete - My left wheel was slipping in and out of being locked. I opened her up and noted the spring at the end of the cable was bent. It was beyond adjustment as the cable had stretched. Last night I just replaced the whole cable from the trigger down. $40 part at an Ariens dealer. It took me about an hour in a dimly lit freezing garage! LOL
