I have a craftsman 24hp model # 917.28970, how do one change/add fluid to transaxle or change. Is a filter required, and if so, which one? What type of oil is required. r


The fluid has been added to the transaxle,at the factory. You do not have to add or service it for the life of the tractor. That is unless,you have removed the transaxle and repaired it in some way. I don't know if this is a new tractor or not,if it is and you are having a problem with the transaxle,and is not working correctly. Try this,Sears fix to this situation is: Move the tractor forward about 5 feet then move it back 5 feet. What this does is,to eliminate air trapped in the transaxle. Sears,claims this may take several times. Why they didn't do this when they first serviced it,is anybodys guess. I'am late in answering your question,anyway i hopes this helps. It you have an Owners Manual,it will state this procedure in your manual. B. Locke

How do you add pump oil and transaxle oil to transmission on craftsman mower 917.289140?


These are sealed transaxles and normally don't need oil added. There is a vent cap where oil can be added but this is normally done when the transaxles are being repair while removed from the mower.

How do I add oil to my sears garden tractors transaxle model no. 917.273320


I'am not sure about this model. Craftsman,usually services the Transaxle at the factory. Requiring no further servicing,unless you have a leak developing,then an overhaul of the transaxle has to be made.I would get a professional in a mower shop,to make this repair. Or Sears does this sort of work. I have seen this Transaxle,(A Peerless Transaxle),torn down for repairs. There is more small parts to this transaxle,then anyone other than a Sears Tech or someone trained to do this. Its more work,than a weekend doer can possible do. Hope this is answers your question,Brad Locke DTD. 12/03/15

Tansmission oil type for model# 917.254740


Hi,

Your Craftsman is equipped with a Agri-Fab transaxle, the predecessor to the Hydro-Gear brand. The recommended oil is 10w-30. Unfortunately, the transaxle on your craftsman tractor is not serviceable. It is sealed for life. The only way to change the oil is to remove the unit from the tractor, tip it upside down and drain the oil out the reservoir plug.

Hi, I have a Craftsman Garden Tractor 18HP Twin, model mo. 917.255919 that has a transaxle leak. The transaxle takes about 5 quarts of SAE 30 Motor Oil. I took the transaxle apart last summer to fix a gear...


I would drain transaxel out and refill with 80w90 gear oil. I think the 30 w is way to thin. You can try some lucas trasmisson sealer and conditioner and see if that helps.
If you have to remove the transaxel I would use hi-temp silicon sealer to seal all seams and arou
nd axel shafts. I have a six year old craftsman garden tractor 18 h.p. twin mod.number 917.2722751 and I'm nearly sure it uses the same transaxel so if you do have to get into the transaxel the oil seal part number is 788088A.I can not find the suggested quanity of oil but I just fill to top thru oil fill plug on top front of transaxel.Hope this helps you. Thanks

Tractor moves but buck and learches


If it is a hydrostatic transaxle check to see if it is leaking,if it is then there really is no economical repair to transaxle. If it isn't leaking then It sounds like the oil in transaxle is degraded.The transaxle is supposed to be a sealed unit requiring no service but over time the oil will get dirty enough to cause problems like you are describing.Remove the back hitch plate and look at the transaxle it will have a rubber vent hose or a 1/4 Allen wrench fitting on top. You will need to purchase a battery suction bulb from sears automotive and use it to remove as much oil from transaxle as possible. Warm the transaxle up first by running it around,then suction the oil out.Refill with a good synthetic motor oil 15w-50 or 20w-50 like Amsoil or Mobil 1.Do not use transmission fluid or hydraulic fluid. When adding the new oil back fill it to within 1.5 in from the top,be sure to allow this amount of air space in top of transaxle for expansion.

Oil capacity for craftsman air compressor circa 1978 model #106..


I have a 2hp craftsman air compessor with a two cylinder pump, Here is the info from my manual as far as oil capacitity:

Remove oil fill plug and slowly add
a compressor oil until it is even with the
top of the oil fill hole. NOTE: Do not
allow oil to be lower than 3/8"
from the top at any time. When filling
the crankcase, the oil flows very slowly
into the pump. If the oil is added too
quickly, it will overflow and appear to
be full. NOTE: Crankcase oil capacity is
approximately 16 fluid ounces.

I buy my compessor oil from Lowes in the tool department. It comes in 16oz and sells for about $3. I wouldnt worry about how many ounces it holds but rather that the oil level is to top of filler hole. Lowes also sells a synthetic oil for about $7 and is recommended for severe conditions (hot / cold / used all day). Good Luck!
