Throttle cable question

Recommended Posts

mark64
I just got a great deal on a B212 this week. Only problem I have with the tractor is the throttle cable won't hold open with the tractor at full throttle. The lock seems to work fine at slower speeds. Is there a fix for this or do I have to look for a new cable? Thanks Mark

Mark- I've got one with a too-slick plastic guide on the replacement cable, it does as you describe. I started with vice grips but it doesn't last long without leaving the vice grips on. Now I have what electricians call a split nut on the cable which is a better looking fix. It is really for splicing heavy wires, and pinches the cable real nice. If you want to go that route, check the electrical section of a bigger hardware store or big box. -Don

Don Thats a good idea, us lineman call that a split bolt connector. I will give that a try. The previous owner used a vice grip on the cable and I was looking for something better. Thanks for all of the info! Mark

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
