Honda Harmony HRB215SDA Clutch Cable Problem

jjlee112000May 24, 2008

I have an 8-yr-old Honda HRB215SDA (self-propelled). Recently, I noticed that the I would lose the transimission in the middle of the mowing. If I stop the engine and restar again, the transmission would be back, and then it would gradually disappear. On inspection, the clutch cable seemed to be loose, and the clutch cable lever seemed to be sluggish.

I tried to adjust the clutch cable by tighten the cable ajuster, but it didn't fix the problem.

Note that when I start the engine, I would still have my transmission. It would only disappear later.

Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

Is the adjustment correct as per the owners manual?

The adjustment was per the owner's manual which basically was moving the adjuster up or down after loosening the lock nuts to a certain extent in order to tighten the cable (I think). I did that and still the problem persists. Somehow I feel that the clutch cable is not as tight as it could be when I engage the clutch lever. When I push the clutch lever to hold it against the handlebar, the lever itself appeared not taut at all.
