SOURCE: need to adjust brake/clutch 14hp craftsman lawn tractor

The brake is on the right side of the transaxle. There are two mounting bolts and one 1/2 nut in the middle that is your adjustment. Tighten it 1/2 turn at a time and hold the brake down and try to roll it until it holds.

SOURCE: yardman 17HP lawn tractor blowing fuse when key is

Any time a fuse blows there is a direct short to grown. Fuses only work in a hot wire. Some where there is a wire hot wire with a bare spot touching the frame or another ground wire. The seat could have a wire pinched, the motor may have melted a wire or something simple like that. Move all the wire around and see if they may be pinched or touching another wire or it any are melted together.

SOURCE: my craftsman 17hp lawn tractor shutters bad when

Its not really a clutch, clutch/brake pedal when pressed will release belt pressure which stops pulley from turn axle. When predded all the way down it mechanically applies brakes. The vibration is from a bad pully that the drive belt rides on or a bad belt. Look for chucks of belt missing.With engine off put on parking brake and manually wiggle each pulley that drive belt rides on to see if there is any play. No play should be present. Good luck.

Craftsman Lawn Tractor 17hp 42 model 917.271662 auto trans idles and bucks when cutting grass


The symptom that you are feeling is that your transmission is not fully engaging correctly. Basically you have a few different things to try depending on the trans that is on your machine. Drain the fluid and re-install new fluid, adjust your brake/clutch to make sure that you are fully disengaged and fully engaged when you release the pedal. If none of those 2 cure your issue then you are looking at a trans rebuild or replacement

My mower brakes do not work


The adjuster is on the right side just in front of the rear wheel. its the clutch rod / brake rod . you will see a spring on the shaft with two nuts one used to lock the adjustment. loosen the nuts and turn the nuts so the nuts go towards the back of the tractor. keep checking the peddle for brake .

How do I adjust the brakes on a Murray 17hp 42'' twin cylinder wide body?


find your brake disc on your trans axle
find the 1/2 or 9/16 nut on the outside of the brake disc and turn it clockwise1/8 turn and retry your brakes 1/8 turn. at a time until you achieve adequate breaking
do not overtighten that nut as if you do you will not be able to move your mower in neutral after you let out on the brake /clutch
