Question about Garden
When i turn the ignition switch to start it it blows the 20 amp fuse under the cowling. I have put in a new battry and starter and selinoid. It will either blow the fuse right away or will barely try to crank very slow . Could it be the ignition switch itself. THe cables are not loose or corrughted. Thanks tim
What brand,model and year, If Craftsman check your owner's manual. Mine takes a 30 amp.

I also have a Craftsman tractor with the same problem. Sears repairman said it needed a new transmission and it would cost $1,400 to install. A new one is about $1,000. Anyway, if you remove the battery and the battery tray under the seat it will expose the transmission fill hole (hex). I opened the top and it looked empty. I had a bottle of 90 weight gear oil in my shop and filled the transmission to the top. I have not had any problems with it since. $4.00 bottle of oil verses a new tractor is worth a try.

The item you are referring to is called a snap ring. You can purchase a small collection of snap rings from you local hardware store or automotive dealer. These snap rings can be viewed at the bottom of this filehttp://www.rotorclip.com/cat_pdfs/de.pdf or ordered from http://www.rotorclip.com/.
These links should get you the information you need to go to the local hardware store and get your parts.

the bar connecting the wheels is bent. this is easy to change. just pull the pins out on both sides and lift the rod out. you can straighten it in a vise or order a new one through sears. cost about $12. our local repair shop keeps them on hand.

I would start by splitting the systems. remove the ground wire that goes to the spark plug coil kill wire.
If the engine runs with the blades on then, the problem is in the chasis or safety switches. if you still have the problem it is the engine. Maybe the engine can not produce enough power to spin the blades.
This could be because of the common deck spindle bearing lock up or the engine being worn out.
After you do the test if you need parts contact a shop like www.arcolawn.com and they can ship you the parts.
