08 cub cadet chute control cable.

Ok I have a cub cadet with the joystick control. When I move it left and right I have no chute control. I noticed the cable in the gear box attached to the chute was sticking out aka slack. I opened it up and and said hmmmmm. I ran the cable the way I thought it should be run but no luck. Anyone know how this cable needs to be run or have a schematic of it? thanks. BTW I am new to the forum and it looks fantastic....

    Hi Dan, welcome to Jack's Forum!
     
    Do you know the model number of your Cub Cadet?  The owner's manual (if you have it) may show you the process on how to adjust the slack on the cable by adjusting the cable hex nuts.  Page 18 in this Cub Cadet snowblower manual with joystick, shows an example.

    Hello Jack
    My model number is31AH5ZL5596, and my manual looks the same as what you posted. I am having a little different problem. My cable has come unwound from the gear pulley up by the chute. I attached a couple of pics. It looks like the cable locks in on the back end of the pulley before wrapping around the gear somehow.
