2012 Cub Cadet Volunteer Throttle Cable


Recommended Posts

New-to-me 2012 CC Volunteer throttle cable broke during the wicked cold snap we had a few weeks ago (upstate NY). It was already a bit sticky, but at least it was usable. 

Is it possible to replace it myself, or must I pay to have it hauled 50 miles to the nearest shop?  I can access both ends, but the majority of it is pretty buried from the top and underneath. 

Any advice would be appreciated.

more than likely you're going to have to crawl under it,** usually throttle cables run from the pedal through a hole in the lower dash, and underneath the floor.

 What i would do is find the throttle cable at the governor on the engine, and trace it to the pedal, or the other way around so you will know which way to route the new one.... on each end of the cable are little round tabs. They almost look like BB's. usually you have to pull the cable one way or another to slide them out of their keeper hole. usually pry on it with a flathead screwdriver.

here is an online manual for your machine if needed. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1146500/Cub-Cadet-Volunteer.html?page=1#manual

 i hope this helps some.

** if you cant crawl under it and you have to jack it up,  be sure to support it with jackstands or concrete blocks, in case the jack fails.

Robynn did you change your cable? I just had to replace a fuel pump, filter and regulator... found a websight to order parts just google parts OPengines  had the best prices for what i needed. but still not the cheapest..
