NutCASE said:
how do I get the throttle cable out so I can tighten it up.
Jim - not speaking from experience, but here goes: The two round head bolts that hold your choke and throttle cables are secured by a nut and lockwasher on the backside of the panel. Don't know if you can reach them from under where your battery tray was removed or if you'll have to go in from the inspection cover. Once they are unbolted, it appears that the throttle will just slide out the back (you will have to pry off the black plastic handle from the lever).
Hope that helps.

What Rob said. Thats how I pulled mine out on my 86. I had my engine out at the time so it was a lot easier to get in there and get the nuts off. If you are having trouble getting back in there to put the nuts back on then put a small amount silicone in a socket and then place the nut and lockwasher in it. The silcone will help hold the nut in the socket while you try and fish it up through the inspection cover or from the battery tray area.

Careful use of a standard claw hammer, resting against a small piece of 1/4" plywood to protect the dash decal will allow you to remove the choke and throttle knobs. Those knobs are NLA so, be gentle.

Good to hear that you got it resolved. It's the little things like this that annoy the heck out of and take some of the fun out of the seat time. Solving them quickly as they crop up is the best way because if you allow too many of them to exist, you end up hating the tractor and that leads to selling it.

It seems to me that you have a start/gen unit. If so, then you don't have a rectifier because the rectification is done inside the start/gen but you do have a "regulator" that keeps the battery from being over charged. Those are something that you only replace when they fail because they are around $80.00 at your local Brian Hildreth.
