Unfortunately this tractor didn't have a cable at all. It had been removed when I purchased it. I misspoke when I said that it was broken.

So you do need a complete unit. We know it's difficult to obtain D.B bits over that side but wherever you eventually obtain one from just make sure you end up with the correct unit as there are as I said two different engine end screw thread 'caps'. Yours probably has the knurled round cap type, later models had a hexagon nut type. As I said earlier, also make sure that the new unit has a thread which matches that on the engine, if you should happen to acquire one from an internet auction site or an online 'dealer' ask about the type of engine end it has, if there's no picture, and if it has fine or coarse thread.

Good job really, because if you had changed the inner cable only, you would find that it wore out much quicker.

Always change inner cable and outer sheathe together.

Get in touch with a reputable dealer, they will be able to help you find the correct one.
