SOURCE: replacing the blades on a craftsman dyt 4000

Not a hard job, but you will need a couple of tools. First, you will need a wrench that fits the nut that is holding the blade on. I prefer a closed end wrench, but an open end will do. Second, you will need a blade changing tool. The brand name is called a Blade Hog. It attaches to the deck and holds the blade in place so you can turn the nut. Raise the deck as high as it will go, attach the Blade Hog, and then loosen and remove the nut. Be sure and pay attention to which side is up on the old blade and put the new one on in the same manner.

hope this helps,
c

SOURCE: how do u take off the rear wheel of a craftsman

in the center of each back wheel you see a black cap
this needs to be removed first.
Remove by hand or have pliers that wont damage cap while removing
E clip next it is located behind this cap and needle nose pliers will remove it or a flat blade screwdriver.( could be a bolt if so remove with a wrench that fits turn ccw)
Remove e clip and washer and slide wheel off of shaft along with keystock
Be sure to reinstall keystock in each wheel or your tractor will not move when it is in a gear


if your wheel doesnt come off easy spray the shaft liberally with pb blaster or liquid wrench and let it sit for a few minutes
Find a big hammer and a 2x4 with the rear end jacked up and supported hit on the inside of the wheel (with the hammer hitting the 2x4 )while rotating the wheel to different spots hit with some authority and it should start coming off the shaft
if not heat with a torch is next and rehit some more.
clean and grease shafts lightly before reinstalling for next removal

When using a bagger, you need correct blades on mower or Worn blades will cause the deck not to get the vacuum needed for the bagger to pickup.

Just got the mower 6 weeks ago gas cap will not stay on if you cut around bushs. I have gotten leaves in tank,need to take tank off to clean it out. It is a YT 4000 42 in. cut 24 hp . thank B.M.Davis Jr.


Only around bushes? If you getting so close that the bushes are forced up against the bushes I recommend trimming this area, or use a push mower if the ground is in good shape for it, however if your not getting very close to the bushes I will need more info

24 hp Briggs Stratton sears riding mower engine wont start unless you use start fluid cleaned filter have flow to engine


If the mower starts and continues to run after injecting, you may want to make sure the choke is working properly. If the choke plate is not closing all the way, it will make cold starts difficult.
