    The fins broke off the transmission fan on my Craftsman YT3000 tractor model 917288515 when the drive belt slipped off the pulley. I replaced the drive belt being careful to route it per the diagram. I replaced the transmission fan, reusing the slip ring that held the fan blade on. When I...

    My neighbor has this 1969? Sears Custom 7 (917.25440) with cab and snowblower. Her husband took care of this tractor but has since passed. He built a cab with windshield wiper, added a snowblower, and added hydraulic controls to the blower within the last couple years. He was an engineer and...

    Hello everyone. I have a 20 year old Craftsman Lawn Tractor model 917.271142 with a Kohler 16.5hp engine. It's been great, but yesterday after starting it, it ran for a few minutes and then shut down. I had a similar problem last year and it was a blown fuse, which after replacing it ran fine...
  5. Small Engines and Repair
    Note: looked over forum a few times, I assume deck related repairs belong here as well? My father bought this around 2017 back before I knew about mowers enough to offer him advice on what to buy. He has hit a few things that have wrapped around the blade (plastic tarp, cloth sheet) nothing to...

    Was running my mower for a few hours last night and it was cutting fine, no issues. Well, I shut it down to look at something, but after I came back it would only click and not start. I've checked the inline fuse as well as the seat switch to verify it's functional. I also jumped it with my...

    It was just recently brought to my attention again how hard it was on this forum to find my original story, "BEWARE OF HUSQVARNA GARDEN TRACTORS (PART 1)". After much consideration I decided to bring this post into it's own where it belongs so it can be found along with my other posts should you...

    I recently purchased this mower with the intent to fix it up and possibly resell it. I'm looking for a manual for it but I can't find one. The product number is 917.258492. It is missing a key and I want to know which one to buy. The manual would be helpful for knowing what parts I need to buy...

    I have a Craftsman LT1000 Model 917.272670 the green version with 17.5 Briggs single cylinder, I think Initek or something it's called? Two seasons ago I had blown head gasket and did repair with my father in law who is a mechanic. I took auto classes in school and work for a major truck...

    I've got a 2013 Craftsman Weedwacker 4 cycle 30cc trimmer that someone gave me that is bogging down when you give it throttle, It will die. Wouldn't run at all when I first got it. He was tired of messing with it. I went thru the carburetor and used carb cleaner on it with pressurized air...

    What's a lawn king? Guy wants to get rid of of one with a snowblower, wondering what it is and if I should buy it. Never seen one before, can't find jack about it. Looks kinda like the older craftsman mowers, but I cant find that anywhere. So 3 questions, what is this? What's it worth? And can...

    So I just recently was given a Craftsman Chipper model 247.79983. Decent chipper for what it was intended. I have added oil and adjusted the carb because it wasn't running at all. However, I am in need of a manual. I need to pull it apart and lube up/sharpen the flail blades and possibly the...

    Hi. I've got an early 90's GT6000, 917.255980, 6 speed transaxle (well, 3 low and 3 high, plus reverse). The transaxle is leaking oil, appearing at the base at the center of the transaxle, and I assume it is the gasket where the two halves come together. The gasket is part number 121878X. Does...
