If I am understanding you correctly you are talking about the spindle and the hold down bolts for it. Most spindles use a 5/16 course thread 1 1/2 inches long with a 1/2 inch head size

SOURCE: change rotory blade on craftsman 917377794

This is a nice mower, it has a Honda engine. The blade bolts onto a "blade brake clutch" which is why you see 3 bolts. Removing the two outer bolts should release the blade. Normally these bolts are about 1/4" to 5/16" diameter at the threads, and have split washers to prevent them from accidentally coming loose from vibration or impact.

Here's the steps I use when replacing the blade:

  1. Pull the spark plug wire off the spark plug.
  2. Lay the mower over on it's side (gas filler cap should be up, so whichever side allows the gass filler cap to end up on the high side of the engine).
  3. Find a wrench that properly fits the blade bolts.
  4. If right-handed; wearing a garden or protective work glove on the left hand, grasp the blade.
  5. Unbolt both bolts by turning in a counter-clockwise direction (left circular direction).
  6. Remove the bolts being sure not to lose the locking washers.
  7. Pull the blade off the blade mount (sometimes a light tap is necessary to loosen the blade from the blade mount).
  8. Replace the blade with the exact Sears part number (diagram and parts list attached below).
  9. Thread the bolts back on using your fingers to get them started - don't force them if they start to bind or you'll cross-thread them; bad thing).
  10. Snug the bolts down tight, sufficient to compress the locking washers flat.
  11. Don't overtighten, they need to be tight, but if you use a long handle wrench or ratchet drive you can cause them to break or fail while the balde is spinning, another bad thing. Tighten them snug assuring the washers compressed flat.
  12. Turn the mower back upright onto its wheels.
  13. Replace the spark plug wire back onto the spark plug.
  14. Leave sit for 30 minutes before starting to assure the oil has returned level in the engine before you attempt to start the engine.
Here's your diagram and parts list:

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Craftsman Model 917.377790

Sounds like you lost the drive key out of the crankshaft, it's usually half-moon shaped and keeps the blade hub and the crankshaft turning together, the bolt just holds it all on the end of the crankshaft.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Cant remove blade on lawn mower

Follow directions. See if this works;

Blade Maintenance
�� Warning! Switch off, remove the isolator
key, battery and grassbox before adjusting
or cleaning.
�� Always wear gardening gloves when handling
or working near the sharp blades.
Turn the machine on its right side and inspect
the blade; if blunt or damaged, replace.
Use the following procedure to remove and replace
the blade:
Insert a screwdriver into hole 26 to lock the
drive. Hold the blade 30 using gardening gloves
(not provided) and use a spanner (not provided)
to remove the blade bolt 29, blade washer 28
and blade 30.
Fit the blade 30, blade washer 28 and the blade
bolt 29. Ensure that the blade is the correct way
up (so that this symbol can be seen located
as in figure I) and tighten the bolt 29 firmly.
Ensure the screwdriver is removed before attempting
to turn the machine on.

If this procedure does not work then try the following;

It is not uncommon for the blade bolt to become seized onto the shaft due to all the gunk and moisture on the underside of the deck. Try to soak the bolt several times over with penetrating oil ( WD 40, PB Blaster, etc). Spray the bolt head, the top of the blade where it contacts the shaft, etc. Do this several times and let the penetrating oil soak in. Hit the bolt head gently several times with a hammer to loosen up the corrosion. Then try to remove the bolt per directions.
Hope this helps, if so Please rate, Thanks, and Good Luck!

SOURCE: need manual to see what size bolt is that holds on

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly,

It appears your model number is 74370 There are 3 bolts one for each blade and the part number is 26-0671 or 260671 for the blade mount.

Part look up:

http://www.jackssmallengines.com
then enter part number 260671 $6.31 ea.

You can not use just any bolt for this. They are hardened bolts with an NF thread. If you use a non hardened bolt the blade will fly off when the bolt shears.

This bolt is available at most all Lawn Mower Parts Supply sources. Toro uses the same bolt on most all of their mowers.

If you do not have a Lawnmower Parts Supply near by, you might be able to go to an Autoparts supply source with yet one of the other blade bolts in hand and have them match the markings on the bolt head with yours so that you have the exact replacement bolt.

Any other parts for your mower can be found here:
http://www.jackssmallengines.com/help.cfm

Use the Search model window. each line below is a drop down window
Toro
Riding
74370 <- there are numerous models up to 74704
enter your model number if different.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I change the blades on a vermeer 1600A chipper


Place the chute over the rotor. Remove all the clamp bolts for one blade. This will allow you to remove the old blade and clamp bar. Clean clamp bar and blade slot. Install new blade with clamp bar. You will need a knife gauge for this. Use the knife gauge at each end of the blade. Torque clamp bolts to 280 ft. lbs. After blades are installed it is necessary to adjust the bed knife by loosening the three bed knife bolts. Use the set screws to adjust the bed knife to 1/16 in. above the lower feed plate. Torque the bed knife bolts to 250 ft. lbs. Then use the other two bolts to adjust the lower feed plate to .013 to .016 between the bed knife and the rotor blades. Put the chute back into place and you are good to go.
