Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
Picked up a tree branch and cracked the gear box on the center of the auger...need to find the replacement part....thanks
Not a hard job, but you will need a couple of tools. First, you will need a wrench that fits the nut that is holding the blade on. I prefer a closed end wrench, but an open end will do. Second, you will need a blade changing tool. The brand name is called a Blade Hog. It attaches to the deck and holds the blade in place so you can turn the nut. Raise the deck as high as it will go, attach the Blade Hog, and then loosen and remove the nut. Be sure and pay attention to which side is up on the old blade and put the new one on in the same manner.
hope this helps,

I solved the problem after buying carb and fuel pump rebuild kits.The carb kit didn't fit anyway, but didn't need it. The problem was in the fuel filter. I had forgotten the problem happened when I ran out of gas. Inside the fuel filter is a washer held in place by a spring. Without fuel it apparently lost pressure and the washer slipped out of place about 1/2", which was enough to let all the gas through that could. The rebuild kit had a new rubber gasket. I won't let it run out of gas again.

TO REMOVE THE PULLEY FROM THE CRANKSHAFT END:
Remove the blade belt and, if needed, the deck to give yourself more room to work. Apply your brake pedal and lock it down, this will relieve the tension on the ground drive belt.
If you have an electric blade clutch, find the plug where the wire goes over from the clutch to the frame and unplug it.(Electric clutch will be heavy when unbolted so be ready for it.)
In the center of the pulley or blade clutch you will find a long bolt (most likely a 5/8 head on it) You may need a deep socket to reach it depending upon the type of stack pulley on it, remove this bolt and the pulley should slide freely on the crankshaft. slide it downward and slip off the belt on the top of the pulley then remove the pulley the rest of the way
