Honda HS80 Help

Hello,

I have an Honda HS80 that I cannot get adjusted properly. When I got it it wouldnt go into reverse but would go in all 3 forward gears. By adjusting the gear select cable I got it to go into every gear and it worked well. Only issue is It will not free roll while in neutral. There is a second cable next to the gear select cable that adjusts slack to the wheel that makes contact with the friction disc. No matter what I do I cannot get it to free roll in neutral.

Any help?

that is a tracked model correct?? (one at work is..) only thing i can think of might be the tension of the tracks themselves??? if im not mistaken there is an adjustment for that... maybe somebody else with more experience with those can chime in

Track models are notoriously difficult to move, unpowered.

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.

Yes it's tracked. It's a pig to move while not running. you might as well just start it and move it in gear.

Now I just found the gear select cable busted. I called the local honda dealership and they couldn't find the part number in the system. They also called honda direct and they don't even show it. Guess the unit is over 20 years old and they haven't made the cable in a while.

I can't even find the number online. The semantics I found all have cable #15 not even listed.

take it to a small engine shop (the cable itself) and see if they have something for a motorcycle or any other machine that might work... best hope i can give you right now

Boats.com]All Years HS80 TA Honda Snowblower CONTROL PANEL Diagram and Parts does not show the cable available either. I agree with Marty on trying to match one up with at a motorcycle shop or try to find a good used one.

Adjusting the transmission cables has a special procedure, I will try to read my HS80 service manual for the proper procedure and i will post it. (I had an HS80 that I bought with an intermittent no drive condition, I followed the proper procedure and all was good forward and reverse gears).
