PLEASE HELP = Craftsman 536886331 = Clutch Cable

Hello. I need guidance. I broke the Clutch Cable that connects to the Auger Drive Lever on my Craftsman 10 Horsepower 29 Inch wide snow blower. It is Model # 536.886331. It is only about 12 inches long. It has a " S " shaped part on one end and a Loop on the other end that attaches to a spring that is connected to the Control Lever up top to engage the auger. I have NO idea how to disconnect the " s " shaped part from the auger drive lever. Please help me.

That part is called a Z fitting. Disconnect the bottom end of the cable, then you have the slack to lift the cable 90 degrees and slide the z fitting out of the hole in the handle.

Work fascinates me.
I can watch somebody work for hours...

Here's a link for parts and descrptions also: CRAFTSMAN SNOW THROWER Parts | Model 536886331 | Sears PartsDirect

I usually take the part numbers and search ebay before buying from Sears though..... much cheaper that way.




I am deathly allergic to shovels!

Plus one. For the most part Sears is almost always quite a bit higher.

Hello. I am the guy with the Craftsman 536886331 = Clutch Cable. I need to disconnect it from the spring to inside the machine - not the handle.

as a new guy here, try a picture of the problem - looked quickly at parts blow-up and I think there's a threaded connection that ties the cable to "inside" - of course, i could be wrong since I'm looking at a drawing and not the real thing

To start you need to remove the belt cover, then you have to tilt the machine on its nose and remove the bottom panel. Take a look and you should see how it is routed. Then we can help from there.

Don't forget to empty the gas first or turn the gas valve off and put plastic under the gas cap.

If you still need more help just post a photo of where you're having a problem.
