Hey Everyone,

Is the tack cable the same for the 1500 as it is for the 175, I think I read somewhere that they are different?

Thanks
Samantha

I don't know which cable is what but in many cases you may be able to replace the inner cable rather than replacing the sheath, too.

Thanks for the quick response.

The cable was cut right before where it goes inside the engine, so a replacement was required, sighs...

I just found and ordered one from Southern Global in MS, pricey but at least now I have one on the way, I just hope and pray it actually fits and works.

Cheers

Hey Folks,

Well like I said have the new tack cable, but was in the process of trying to clean out where the engine end of the cable goes, here:

I couldn't get the hole cleaned out to suit me, so I decided to take the whole block off for easier access and found this:

Plus the gears inside are locked up big time, so I opened the parts file and nowhere does it show that assembly, anyone have that?

Any ideas where to find the parts or a whole new assembly?

New cable won't help with all that.

Cheers
Samantha

Hey Folks,

Anyone taken one of these completely apart before, I got the large plug/cap/bolt whatever it's called off and got the main shaft, (that goes to the engine) out, man is that thing cruddy inside, but I got that shaft/worm gear all cleaned up, and a cpl of the teeth have a few rough spots but should be fine.

Now I have to get the other 2 caps off, but I can't get a wrench on them, anyone removed them, what did you use?

Those have to come off it's the only way I will be able to get the rest of this clean and inspect the other worm gear for damage.

HELP!!!

Cheers
Samantha
