I have a Craftsmen riding mower/tractor, model number is 917257630, the gear on the starter that goes up and turns the motor and starts it, the teeth r stripped off, how do i take that gear off??

You're not going to be happy. You can't replace that gear. You have to replace the whole starter. I've run into the same before and was very upset.

Craftsmen garage door is not opening. It started

Your drive gear must be stripped. Remove the cover and you will most likely find lots of what looks like white sawdust and a stripped gear. It is white nylon and is just in front of the motor. The part number is 41A2817 if you want to replace it and it comes with instructions. Available at any good door opener service company.
