Recommended Posts

roma3112
hi guys almost a lil embarassed to ask but, i recently rebuilt the 42' blower for my 3112 as part of that i had to remove the assembly that rotates the chute. Well I put back the cable and re-wrapped it as i thought it was but it is not correct. When i turn the adjuster it gets all bunched up depending on which way and how far you turn it. Is there a correct way to install the chute adjustment cable? any help would appreciated john

Yes, I have messed around with those cables a lot too. My suggestion is to take the rotator arm completely off the blower, with the chute facing forward, wrap one half of the cable(on the fat part, #13) above the bolt, #11 in the drawing, and the other half below the bolt. Then pull the arm tight and replace it in the socket on the blower. Once you get it set right it shouldn't give you much trouble. I would suggest that you use some white lithium grease or other lubricant on the base of the chute so it turns easily. I have tried PAM spray cooking oil and didnt think that much of it, altough some people swear by it.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
