Small Engines (Lawn Mowers, etc.)/Turf Til Rototiller


Hi Eric, my question is we have a Turf Til Rototiller Model #5058 11 L040B which has a broken control cable and where on earth can parts be found? It was manufactured by Universal Co-Operative in Cleveland Ohio and I am not sure of the date. It has a Briggs and Stratten engine. It is lime green in color. I know this isn't much info to go on but we are hoping you can help.My husband and I have searched the internet for hours including the yetmans website. You assistance will be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance. Have a nice evening.

The company has been out of business for many years.  Like, I can not find much info.  Which cable are you needing?  Maybe you can find something that will work?  We keep all our cables in one locattion, sorted by brand, and then part number.  This is not a perfect method for parts stocking but it allows us the ability to "match up" cables for situations like yours.

You can measure the length of the cable along the the throw/pull and start searching the internet for something that might work.

Can you attach a few pictures of the cable and the cable ends?

Born and raised in the midwest. Started tinkering with engines when I was about 14 on my Suzuki RM-80. I began lawn mower repair at a small hardware store. I knew absolutely nothing. I read lots of repair manuals and met an older fellow who taught me many lessons. I continued working on small engines through high school and paid my way through college working on mowers at the same hardware store. Decided to get away from the midwest and mower repair so I joined the Air Force. I repaired air traffic control electronic equipment and ended up in Hawaii where I got a part time job at Small Engine Clinic. I gained a lot of experience from the Small Engine Clinic and had a blast repairing small engines. I then took the Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician test and earned my MST. I then traveled to Wisconsin where I attended the factory update training seminar and received formal training. Continued working on mowers part time as I completed 20 years of military. Retired from the military on a Friday and continued in the lawn and garden industry the next Monday.
