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.

SOURCE: Craftsman lawn tractor model new battery drains quickly...

it could be the stator in the engine check the voltage with the volt meter when its running if its low check connections on battery & voltage if its below 12.5 volts then its the stator but the only thing is the engine should run with-out the battery so there is something else going on there is a fuse in the electrical system if theres a short that fuse will blow & engine will stall

Hi there Avu

It's quite east to see when was your tractor was made, follow these simple steps and you'll know how to see what model it is

  1. Lift the tractor / mower seat (pull it up)
  2. You will see there's a small metal label with the serial and model number of the tractor / mower
  3. Check the serial number of the tractor / mower
  4. the first six digits of the number are you the model month day and year (i.e 090999XXXXXXX this tractor was made in September nine in 1999
Hope this helps
Attached is an image of the tractor seat and the metal plate

SOURCE: Craftsman lawn tractor, model 917.270711, smoking and stalling

That is a Briggs & Stratton engine and given its age, I would say it is time to overhaul or replace the carburetor. Over time the float needle and seat become worn and inoperable which is why you are getting fuel in your crankcase. If you are not familiar or comfortable with working on these things, this is a job better left to a professional. There are too many things that can (AND WILL) go wrong in trying to do it yourself. Just scan through some of the questions on here and see how many others have taken theirs apart and can't remember how to put it back correctly!

My craftsman 18.0 42" lawn


First check to make sure you can turn each blade by hand, with the mower off. If neither blade spindle is frozen remove the deck and make sure all the pulleys move freely and function like they should. The cable should have been operating a spring loaded pulley arm that applied tension to the deck belt to make the blades function. Some times build up with block that from moving or rust will make it stick.

Blades turn when not ingaged to turn


This will be due to belt drag. There is a blade brake fitted that is supposed to push brake pads onto the pulleys when the blade clutch is 'out'. If either the pads are worn, or the spring is missing/broken/dosconnected, that will be the problem.

Changing out the blades...are the attachment bolts reverse thread or normal, i.e. clockwise to tighten?


Should be clockwise to tighten, use some "PB blaster or Deep Creep" penetrating oil on the bolts before trying to take them off. It will help.
