Ariens 1032 Where does the stupid cable go???

I have a ST1032 that has a cable to control the top chute angle. Seems like no matter where I route it, it rubs on something or can even get stuck in the gear for the chute's turning apparatus. What am I missing??? If there is a missing cable clamp, I'd love to know where it goes! Thanks!

Do you know the year or model number? There are a number of variants of the ST1032 and they may route the cable differently. A photo of the machine could be helpful too.

You also might try a Google image search on "Ariens ST1032" for some ideas:



~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

Thanks very much for the reply and picture! My cable control is on the whole other side of the machine from yours! I think that you have an improved place where they mounted the control handle; but I will have to look into the other side thing!

Interesting! I'd love to see a photo of your machine... it sounds like it's probably a newer model.

I'm in the process of restoring a machine similar to those pictured above and can tell you one big drawback of the cable routing shown: running the machine with the belt guard off makes for a *very* unhappy cable. And a new one's 85 bucks!

In my case I'm going to try recovering it with heat-shrink tubing and we'll see what happens.

The 1032 in the back of the truck is missing a knob on that metal lever which controls the chute deflector angle. The knob doesn't turn, but rather is there to make moving the lever easier, so you don't hurt your hand. As for the cable.. I'll see if I can get a photo of one for you. Give me a few days, I have access to a 1032 like the one in the photo.

by the way, I love everything about those 1032s except the wide balloon type tires. My only pet peeve.
