Stihl blower

jpleech(zone5-6/MO)November 27, 2013

I have a stihl br 380 blower that took a fall earlier today, and humpy dumpy here is trying to put it back together. I believe what happened is that when it fell it knocked the throttle cable off it's seat at the trigger. Any way, it starts and runs just fine, but the trigger is lose and doesn't pull the cable. I've check the Cale at the carburetor and it's still attached. Does anyone know how the cable is supposed to seat of the trigger mechanism? I'm at wits end here. A picture or a link to a diagram would be worth lots.

Thanks, John

If it seems that where the outer cable is loose, you may have damaged it inside the handle. The cable will likely have a formed/ crimped lip that is held in a slot inside the handle.
