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..

      I had a problem 6-8 mo ago when the unit would not start . But you could see power on the dash. The starter solenoid was replaced and it has been fine until yesterday. When I started it up I noticed a high pitched noise coming from under the front. Like a alarmbuzz ..It seemed to drive fine so I went ahead and used it off and on for a hour or so . The noise would not go away . I parked it in the shed and lifted the hood . It seemed to be coming from the battery compartment ( where the new starter solenoid is) I jiggled the connections and the noise changed timbre and then the machine went dead. No power at all . No lights . When you cross the two poles on the starter solenoid ( previously last year it would start and run ) nothing. Checked the battery and it is fully charged . I checked the fuses inside the battery box and they all looked good  but I must be missing something. Anyone have a clue what I need to do next to R&R. The closest repair place is 2 hours away in Mississippi . Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a 2004 KUBOTA RTV 900 DIESEL and I need to replace both front cv axels.I have been online looking at them and there seems to be a lot of different manufactures to choose from. My question is who makes a good aftermarket set of cv axels for this KUBOTA. I have read horror stories of people buying the  cheap Chinese brand only to find out they don't fit or they don't last very long and fail again. I hate to have to spend over $200 a shaft to get OEM from KUBOTA when I'm sure there is a company out there who probably makes it for them or makes comparable to OEM. Thanks for your help.

      Brand new t boss 550. couple of questions. 
       
      1.  Do you need speakers in order to play music ?  Hooked my phone to Bluetooth no sound 
      2.  On screen registration.. it won’t let me fill in the info on the touch screen.  Navigation works but the registration portion does not 
      3.  Is there a data plan you can get or need ?
