Question about Craftsman 20 Hp 42" Deck Lawn Tractor

1 Answer

Craftsman Lawn Tractor - 6 yrs old

The right spindle arm (L shaped) has broken closest to the inside of the rim. Due to someone not keeping it greased I'd imagine. I wanted to know a rough estimate of what the replacement part should be.

Grease fittings for spindles


Some cheaper mowers don't have grease zirks for the spindle bearings. If you cleaned off the deck and you can't see them, the only thing to do is remove some shields and keep looking, or check with manufacturer details to see if it even has them. A simple call to a craftsman repair shop should be able to answer that question.

Need to change the spindles on model 917.273220 craftsman tractor


The job is much easier and safer with compressed air and an impact. I would try really hard to find someone with air to borrow but if no air is available then wedge a piece of 4x4 between the blade and deck to keep the blade from spinning. BEWARE, the board can pop out and the spinning blade can be dangerous. Remove the deck from the unit. Remove the pulley first, hold the blade with your hand ( only if you have air/ impact) to prevent the spindle from spinning. Note the washer under the pulley. Then remove the blade, then the spindle bolts. Most AYP replacement spindles now come pretapped but if not place spindle in a vice and use one of the old spindle bolts ( they are self tapping) to make threads in the mounting holes. Then mount the new spindle in reverse order being sure to instal the washer between the spindle housing and the pulley. Again hold the blade with one hand and securely tighten the pulley nut with an impact. Also the unit probably has a blade brake arm and the spring holder is mounted by one of the spindle mounting bolts. Pay attention to its positioning before removal. If you have a heavy duty replacement spindle the notch on the bracket may not fit the new spindle. with a file or grinding wheel enlarge the notch on the bracket to fit.

The bolt holding the blades is broken off


Your st bet is to replace the entire spindle assembly.

It's not as cheap as drilling out the old bolt and using an "easyout" tool to remove it, but the outcome is certain.

Better yet do a web search on "137645, 137646 Shaft Kit For 130794 Mandrel, AYP" and you can find the shaft only with bearings.

My YS4500 (3 yrs old) has recently been loosing power in the hydro transmission. The engine runs great, but the drive stinks. I have to ease it into drive and as it gets going it will pick up speed, but if...


Yes, what I believe you have, is a loose drive belt. this can be due to several things,1st, the drive tensioner spring may be broken, 2nd,the drive belt tensioner pivot arm may need lube, or the belt is worn out.
You did not mention the hydro making noise(whining) if that were the case i would have you check to see if the brake were sticking.

Loud screech noise from deck area


This can be due to a belt slipping or a bad spindle bearing.
And on the difficulty scale,10 being extremely difficult, The belt would be a 1 or 2 and the spindle about 6 or 7 (because the deck usually needs removed for this job)

Can't get front wheel back on lawn tractor Craftsman 52-inch


Make sure you are putting the wheel on the right way. The rim may be off-set. The longer part of the hub should be on the inside.
