Easy Steps on How to Do It
It is that time of the year where we start to think about mowing the lawn. It’s a chore that many people dread, so you might as well do it right and have fun while you are doing it! One thing that can help make your mowing experience more enjoyable is tightening up the throttle cable on your lawnmower. This article will give some tips on how to tighten up this important part of your lawnmower with ease. Learn how to tighten throttle cable on lawn mower following these simple steps.
-Be sure to use the right tools for the job. You will need a wrench or screwdriver and pliers, so be certain you have these before starting on your project!
There are two different styles of throttle cable sockets that you may find: one is threaded (with threads going through its center) and one has an indentation in it where only a flat head screw driver can fit into. The type of socket does not matter as long as there is enough room around the nut/screw end to work with what you need in order to tighten up your throttle cable
-Once you’ve found which style socket your lawnmower uses, loosen off all four bolts by about half way if they were already tightened. The next step require you to take the two bolts on either side of the socket and tighten them both in towards each other while turning. The goal here is to squeeze or press down on the nut/screw end that’s being tightened, so if you hear any squeaking then back off a little bit
-Repeat this process for all four nuts or screws until they are nice and tight but not too tight as you don’t want to overdo it! You should take your time tightening these because it will be very difficult when trying to loosen them later – which could lead into having scraped knuckles from playing with stubborn bolts.
