Lawn mower running problem

I have a craftsman lawnmower with a tecumseh engine,model #917.377580. 6.75hp. I was having a problem starting my mower when ever it was hot. It seemed to load up with gas and flood out. So i replaced the float,needle and seat etc. because on this carb it is sold as a unit. the bowl is held on by a clip from the upper half of the carb. There is no bolt that screws up into the center of the bowl like on most carbs , just a plastic tube inside that goes up into the carb. Anyway I cleaned the upper half and blew out all holes and attached the bowl half. Now I am having trouble keeping it running and if it does run the engine surges. Could this bowl unit be defective, I see no adjustments for the float and needle to let more gas in. What kind of carb is this? I am not familiar with it and have no idea how to make adjustments. please help.

There are no adjustments for the carb., however, in the bolt that holds the bowl on, there is a small hole in the threads that must be clean in order for it to run right. It is a real small hole on either the 3rd or 4th thread from the top.
Hope this helps

Go to a small engines shop with your make and model number and I am sure they can find what you want. I have done that before and you could take the whole engine and they will find what you are looking for if you need to.

Hi Robert,
I'm not usually a Lawn Mower Expert, but I think I may have an answer for you. Assuming your craftsman rotary lawn mower is similar to this self propelled craftsman mower (they should have the same basic parts), this video should help!

Hi, what kind of oil can i put in my ridind lawnmower craftsman?


The domestic engines (Briggs, Tecumseh) take SAE 30 weight motor oil. The import engines (Honday, Kawasaki) usually take 10W30 motor oil. In either case, I recommend using a good quality name brand oil like Castrol, Pennzoil, etc. Most riding mower engine take about 48oz from a complete drain. If your engine has an external filter, it might require a few more ounces.
I hope this helps.

I have a Sears Craftsman mower with Tecumseh, major oil leak


On many Tecumseh engines, there is a crankcase breather located under the flywheel. It has a cork gasket to seal the top plate of the breather. Either the rubber breather housing is cracked, or the cork gasket needs replaced.
