Hi...
I have the older silver bodied JD 14SB and I want to know how to remove and install new trans speed selector cable.

Great mower! Replacing the drive cable is kind of annoying compared to the other mowers I own.

The transmission end of the cable is held in place by the belt guide bracket that is under the drive pulley. You'll have to remove the pulley to get at the two bolts holding the guide bracket in place. Remove the bracket and the cable should be free.

Before removing the bracket, you should see a small spring toward the carb side of the mower. You need to carefully remove that spring before loosening the bracket.

Thanks Mike....
I was very lucky and had this mower given to me for free.
I had to put on a recoil because it was missing and the trans speed cable is broken.I also have a newer green bodied version for parts that has the oil filter option on the kawi motor.
