Hi and welcome to FicYa, I am Kelly.

You will need to make sure that you have items 21 - 29 of this diagram: Scroll way down 75% until you see the deck and belt, then look at item 27 the deflector shield.

It is a matter of sliding the bolt throught bracket on the mower deck and making sure that the shield safety switch is actuated. (Flip up)

I also read the owner's manual (no help!). The only thing about the shield is on page 14 stating to make sure it is in place.

If your missing the hardware to install the deflector shield you can go to http:www.searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number in the search bar. You have to choose model search then click (go).
You will get this diagram if you choose mower deck:

I need to installhow to install a new deflector on Craftsman mower model 917273130?


Very simple. The 6 inch or so pin that holds it on is retained by a clip on one end. To remove clip use a pair of pliers. If you work steadily and carefully you will be able to reuse this clip. After removing clip, pull the pin out. Old deflector and spring be removed now. To get the spring right you have to try it in position before installing it. Just remember that the spring is holding the deflector down so when you are done installing, when you pick up on the deflector there is pressure holding it down. Don't put the pin clip on until you verify the spring force is correct because getting that spring clip off is the Hardesty pay off the job.

How do I level the mower deck on an Ariens 42 in. 17.5 HP Riding Lawn Mower ?


With the mower on a flat surface and the correct air pressure in the tires take a tape measure and measure all four corners of the deck. Then loosen or tighten the adjusting nuts that the deck attaches to the mower frame to get the same measurements on all four corners.

Install a deflector shield on a Sears 54" mower deck


Whats the question? If you are removing and replacing the deflector,there is two to four bolts holding it on the tractor. I'am not for sure,about the amount of bolts holding the deflector on. I don't know what model # ,you have. If by chance,you have a grass catcher installed,it will have to be removed,to get access to the bolts. Once again,i don't know the model if you can have to jack up the tractor or not,even after putting the mover up to the highest setting. This is about all i know,at this point. Hope what i suggested to you,helps. Sincerely,Brad Locke DTD. 12/03/15

Deflector installation


Where does it go the mower deck or the engine. On a John Deere rider like we have , it goes on the mower deck that is located under the tractor or mower. On the right side ( when sitting on seat) ours is on the right and it is for the bag or box attachment for clippings and or debris. A plastic cover is held on by a short rubber bungie on each side that as a hook on each end and it hooks around a small bracket to the front and a small bracket to the rear...Do you still have owners manual ?. most guys keep them in some drawer or shelf in the garage or tool shed area ...good luck...

Mower deck slows and stops when I turn my Simplicity riding mower to the left,


HI,

The simplicity has a a two point mounting system for the deck. It attaches to the front axle which has two runners that go to the front axle's rear support bracket.

Closely check the runners near where the pins that hold the mower deck. They are known for cracking and breakage. Secondly, closely check the decks metal center support bracket, it bolts to the center of the deck and supports the idler pulleys as well as the deck alignment and mounting. Those, too, are known to crack near the front just behind the front pulley.
