Honda Hrx 217 Mower-Drive Cable Replacement
#1

Well the mower does not self propel anymore. The cable snapped mid way through a mow, tipping it on its side last night because there was slack from the cable break I was able to unhook from near the driveshaft but there is a clamp/housing?? for the cable lower down that I need to get the old cable out of.

 

Has anyone done this replacement? Is there a video or instruction on how this is easily done??

From memory there was a video clip on youtube.

 

Croc would probably be the best to point you in the right direction, he loves the 217's

Cheer Bakes, Had a look on youtube just can't find the damn thing. I did however buy the newer HRx217 today and will play around with the old one in the coming weeks.

This thread on Lawnsite is worth a read.

Started in 2009 so I don't know if anything has changed since.
