Oh yeah I know what you're talking about! My mowers don't have that one them, since they took it off on the next model. My old 2 stroke Toro had one of those though.

Hmmm I remember that being in the way. I just zip tied it to the left side as low as I could. It touches that bag, but its not that bad. The cable isnt long enough to be routed on the right.

yea I see why they were removed and went to the direct lever.
this cable is too stiff to snake arround very much and conseal within the frame.
I may just leave it off and make a "lever" that sticks through the plastic gear cover or something.

tomorrow im going to look at another mower like mine that has not been used or modified comercially for "speed and fast repairs"

Sounds like a good plan to me! If you do end up making some sort of lever on the gearbox, you should post a pic of it for the rest of us to see.

Update to my cable crisis!!
I have FINALLY figured out how to route it ... on my own

it goes down the right side.. behind the handlebar mount...
continues foreward OVER the top of rear wheel...
then wraps around UNDER the wheel... (U-turn style)
then comes back under the plastic discharge chute...
runs to the left, parallel the drive axel...
finally to the small PLASTIC shift lever!!!!

success!! it works!!
(ahhh small victories)

so far so good!!

does anyone know how to adjust the BBC?
seems to take awhile to "spin up" when engaging the blade..

as well under heavy long grass load/ wet you can hear the blade slowing a bit..
I am researching the net but not finding so far.
thanks!!
Marc

I'm not that familiar with the newer model BBC's but I don't believe there is any adjustment--replace the BBC belt and check the idler for noise while you have it torn down. Just make sure all the slack is taken out of the engagement cable--at least these are the common fixes on the older models that I'm familiar with.
