When engaging the tractor cable, on my 14sb the wheels don't spin. I noticed that the cable was worn. I went to the john deere dealer, and because they redesigned the cable and lever, (for the jx75 model) he sold me a new cable that he said was longer than the original, and it had to be adjusted for length. (Cutting the cable and reattaching it with lugs) Because the original cable isn't made any longer. Installing the cable, I noticed slack and had to manually pull up the cable from the lever in order to get the transmission to engage and wheels turn. I was looking to cut the cable again to shorten the slack so the lever can do the job and not me. The Black sheating that covers the cable, was moving thru the five speed, transaxale box as I was manually pulling the cable towards me. Can anyone suggest what I can do to engage the transmission, as shortening the cable seems to be the only answer. Does this seem logical? I have asked john deere dealers in illinois and they look at me like I am crazy about cutting the cable. But one dealer in Ohio, said that they changed the height of the handlebars. I been involved in this mess since 2005.
