Okay here is what I have cable is 19 -1/4" attachment point to attachment point (see pics) and the adjustable clevice on the pedal end is 2-1/4" in length so the cable itself is 17" from ball end on cable (gear box end) to the threaded stud that screws into the clevice on the pedal end. First pic is pedal end next is support bracket behind it, next is roller bracket on yoke, last is where cable attaches to gear box. If you need better pics I'll try to pull the tins of of it. The little shtt did pretty decent mowing !

Just in case here is some info that may help : Rick Show inventory list shows he doesn't have it , but he did just get in new inventory , did you check with Sam's ? This place may be of help as well http://www.midwestcontrol.com I believe they can make custom lengths

I need to pull the back metal to see what is there now. Just a stiff wire run there now and it seems way too long. Maybe I'll get time this weekend! Thanks for the help!

 

Haven't checked with those folks yet as I wanted to see what I was looking for!

You could also check with a bicycle repair shop - they usually have the housing material and the inner cable core in bulk for the shifter and brake cables on bikes and just crimp the ends on - not sure if it would be as heavy as the cable you have or if they can come up with similar ends.

I hope to spend some quality time on this little guy today! First off is a temporary fuel tank. Then seeing what's up with the clutch cable. Hope to drive it!

Got it driveable today! Clutch still grabs, so pulleys must be rusted.

Nope! Kicked the PTO in and that pulley promptly came loose from the bolt. Got to check the bearing in there. 

Here's what was in there.

Here's the new one.

I'll get a pic of the tank today. My hand was hurting too much to hold the camera. I stretched the tendons in my R hand some time back and it's slow healing!

Oh well at least you can move it around.  Sorry to hear about your hand - getting older is better than the alternative but still can be painful at times - hope it heals quickly and you get to trim some green stuff.

I'll look that bearing over today! Hope it doesn't need replaced. If the rain holds off, I may hook up the deck. Hope that belt holds for a trial run anyway.

Well, the bearing is froze up! Got it out thanks to the 20 ton press. LOL Bolens Part # 1185064. Has NTN 6203L8 on the bearing.

Here's somewhat of the gas tank I fixed up for it.

Good thing I checked the deck closer. Needs a new PTO belt and the same bearing in the drive pulley. The belt crosses to a NAPA 4L560W. I'll be close to them tomorrow.

The throttle spring was a little worse for wear so I looked around for one. Found it online, but I will not pay $8 shipping for a $1.50 part. Went to Ace hardware and found something close. I'll see what it does.

The bearing may be just an ordinary 6203 series bearing as it is used in a lot of automotive idler applications.  According to the Boles part # and the file LP Bolens did up it was also used on the large frames for the PTO pulley - you can check out this # at Napa tomorrow if you wish to see if it is close 

 

62032RSJ  ID = .669"  OD = 1.575" Width = .472". 

 

Looks like Napa also offer it in an economy version - http://www.napaonlin...6?interchange=1

 

Hope this helps
