Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
Craftsman Kohler OHV 17.5 Mod No 944.600752
Starts and runs great. As soon as I engage the blade, it sputs and caughs black smoke and labours. It cuts but really complains.
Frozen idler pulley under the tractor frame or frozen or damaged bearings on the deck spindles. With no belt tension on these items they should spin freely. If you have the know-how you can fix the problem yourself (parts are available at sears.com or elsewhere), otherwise you will have to bring it in for repair.
