    I am not familiar with the Manual lift version.
    I highly recommend contacting the MFG directly if you have not done so already

    Call eagle. Their customer service is top notch. I needed a new spring to hold on the quick release lever and called to find the price. I didn't have my wallet with me so I couldn't give them my card number... They sent me a full set (2 bolts and springs) free... The next day.

    What he said...

    I do not have the manual lift either, but I was sent the wrong belly mount 2x's.
    They made it right for me!!! A+++

    BUY A WINCH FOR THE ATV AND USE IT TO LIFT THE BLADE. Hows that for shouting and suggesting something? :D Other then that, call the manufacturer. You more then likely would have had your answer by now rather then waiting for someone UNlike me that has no real help other then telling you that you need to spend more money if you want things to work right rather then cheeping out on the manual crap.

    Don't bother with a manual lift at all. If the cable breaks, fix it. Have everything with you so it can be done right then and there. Or you could take the cable off all together and install a strap with smooth fairlead like this one in the pic. I can assure you, your troubles will be over if you do. The strap is so strong I could easily bend the push tubes to the point it would destroy them. It took me 3 years of dealing with broken cables to find the right set up. I even tried light weight straps and they broke too. I'm 2 years in with this set up and it looks like it hasn't been used!
