If you haven't done so check drive belt to make sure it is fully engaging when you put it in gear. You can also check to make sure that your break is fully releasing.Grasp pedal with your hand and pull it back to make sure it is returning. Thank you.

SOURCE: where is the spark plug located on my craftsman lawn tractor model 917.273360

James, it is at the front of the engine. It is next to the 4" by6" metal cover that says OHV. It is on the right hand side ( sitting on the tractor), There is a black wire the size of a pencil ( diameter ), hooked to it. It is set deep in the engines cylinder head. There is a rubber boot over the end of the spark plug. Remove the rubber boot, you will hace to grip it hard and pull it off. Then you will be able to remove it, using a deep 5/8" socket with a 4 to 6 inch extension.

Hope this helps, if you need more let me know.
Matt

Park brake won't hold. mower will roll with brake engaged


Not sure what mod or make you have..but most mowers have an adjustment on the brake arrangement..get the mower in the air so you can see the movement of the brake rigging when depressed..have someone depress the brake while you watch the movement..now follow the rod or rigging to rear wheels or axle..you should find a adjustment..you may have to remove it to adjust the end connection..good luck..

Why wont my1996 mtd lawnmower stop when i depress brake


The brake is located on the right side of the transmission just forward of the axle. Check that the spring and keeper are in place on the brake rod. The brake is adjustable via the 1/2 inch nut at center of the brake assembly

2005 jeep liberty brake lights don't work, none of them but fuses and brake light switch are good.


maybe brake light switch located near your brake petal needs adjusting...its simply a push button that the brake petal hits as the brake petal is depressed usually u can just pull on them toward you and they'll "self-adjust" after pressing on brake petal...push on brake petal with ur hand and make sure this button is depressed while the pedal is down...

Gear shift stuck in park - brake lights are working - we have checked all the fuses. How do we remove the cover on the shift panel?


First check for a loose vacuum hose to the brake petal. Most models use this safety for engaging the tranny by depressing the brake petal and then selecting the drive or reverse gear.

My lawn mower will start easily and continue running as long as the clutch brake is depressed but when I lift the clutch or try to engage the blades while the clutch is depressed the mower will stall.


This is a shot in the dark. I think you have a failed "operator presence safety switch". Rule this out by finding the switch and jumping it.

Your mower should run with no one in the seat IF THE PARKING BRAKE IS SET.

If the brake is released and no one is on it, it should shut off.

If you are on it and the brake is released you should be able to engage the blades (probably an electric clutch)

Purpose of this interlock is the shut the machine OFF should you fall off or jump off the machine. Do not disable this valuable safety feature.

Let me know what you find.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com
