looks like it is fitted between parts 1 and 4 (bolt and nut). Cable end goes inside the part # you provided. Looks pretty simple; is the old one still there?

No, the old one is gone it broke into several pieces while I was using the snow thrower. But, I think it will be fairly simple to replace. I have ordered the part and will see what happens. I wasn't sure about the cables going through it.

Thanks for your help!
