It attaches the the front of the tractor. Similar to a plow to a truck. If you don't have the brackets, you will need those, or make your own. You can see a picture of the brackets if you go to sears.com. Click on the PartsDirect link at the top, and enter the blade model number.

Undefinedright front tire out of line,l-130 riding lawn momer .right front


If the tie rod end has been changed, you will need to adjust the toe in by dropping the tie rod end from its connection to arm. Not the steering rod. Tighten or loosen the tie rod end on the steering rod until there is a slight toe in. Re install the tie rod end into the steering rod. If there is too much toe in, the wheels will spread when in reverse and steering is impossible. It may take several attempts to set the toe in properly. When proper adjustment is met, steering will be easier or as it should be.

How to fix the toe out problem on my 2010 craftsman lawnmower?


Your gonna have steering rods called tie rods going to each spindle (wheel). Most lawnmowers dont have threaded tie rod ends where you can unbolt it and turn it in or out to achieve perfect alighnment. If its a larger expensive tractor you will find this and its a easy fix but most likely you just have a bend in one of the tie rods or on some cheaper models there could be a plastic bushing warn out causeing play in the front end.( Being able to slightly turn wheels without steering wheel turning) I would most likely say you have a bent steering rod or two...

Two front wheels misaligned, one is straight and the other points outward


To give you a professional soultion I really need a complete model number.

Here is what happens when steering becomes a problem on ANY brand of riding mower.
1. Tie rods get bent
2. Wheel spindle pivots get bent on one side.
3. Pivot bearings or bushings get worn
4. Linkages from the steering wheel to the tie rod pivot connection get bent.

On the basic bottom of the line Craftsman riding mowers the tie rods are fixed and not adjustable. However if you look for a mirror image left to right of the tie rods often you will note that one of them is bent in or out... or is shorter than the other one. There are after market tie rods that are adjustable. This is over 40 years of experience talking here.
THe best way to do an inspection of steering is to place the mower on tripods so that the fram is being supported and not the steering components and then set the steering wheel to the straight position and inpsect ALL of the steering and suspension components for the front end.

Without your model number this is quite generic. With a model number I can show you a parts diagram by item number of what to check.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Craftsman DLT 3000 Lawn Tractor, Model 917.273821. Two problems for which I'd appreciate any help: Problem 1. The front wheels are not aligned. The left front wheel cants out to the left so much so...


Problem 2 is probably a belt slipping or a pulley loose somewhere.Problem 1 .........is the tie rod adjustable?If the tie rods are adjustable, put steering wheel where it's supposed to be when straight, then adjust tie rods so that each wheel is pointed straight ahead. There should be a lock nut that needs to be loosened, then turn the tie rod end in or out and tighten lock nut. Back to problem 2....if it isn't the belt or pulley, it may not be an easy fix.Sometimes over time, belts stretch and get loose, or a set screw in a pulley can work loose, and cause the pulley to slip on the shaft. If it is hydraulic, it might be low on fluid.. I don't know for sure as I am not a big fan of Craftsman lawn tractors. Good luck

Hit fence and right front tire is towing out. how do you get the alignment right?


kevin plumag, you may have bent the tie rod. It's an easy fix: each end of the tie rod connects to the axle, keeping the wheels at the right distance. Each end of the tie rod has a small cotter pin. Remove the cotter pin (a washer will fall off), lift out the bent tie rod, and put a new one back in, reinstalling the washer and cotter pin on each end.If your tie rod is straight, something else is wrong (which is why I'm searching the boards!). You can order a tie rod from Sears; check your manual for the part number.

Craftsman Lawn tractor - When turning to the left the Left front wheel turns much farther then the right front wheel does on a hard right turn. Almost perpendicular to the tractor. Busings are brand new....


I've noticed this on other Craftsman and MTD mowers. The ones with the one main steering rod from the steering wheel to the left wheel and a connecting rod from the left wheel to the right wheel. I think that since we are advised to mow in a counter-clockwise direction, they design the mowers to turn tighter towards the left. It's in the design just like you suspected.

Look under the front between the wheels at the tie rod that connects the two wheels. It is probably bent up and should be straight. If it's bent, remove it a straighten it.
