SOURCE: Where does the manual clutch cable mower deck

It should connect on top of the idler pulley on the idler arm. The bolt is extended and the spring hooks over it with a 'hairpin' or cotter key through the hole in the end to hold it on.

SOURCE: I have a 15.5 HP Sears Craftsman 42

I'm betting that you need a new safety kill switch - probably the one underneath the seat (the spring-loaded plunger switch that won't let you use the machine without your *** in the seat). Could also be the one behind the "dash" that is associated with the blade engagement mechanism.

I know that the under-seat-switch cannot be bypassed or it will disable the machine in the exact way that you described. Why do I say this? Because I just tried to bypass my own "***-in-the-seat-safety-switch" on my very own 15.5 HP, 42" Sears tractor, and it responded by punishing me - the absense of the switch caused the motor to cut out when I tried to put the machine in gear AND/OR engage the blade. It seems to have some measured capacitance - the absense of same seeming to interrupt the ignition timing enough to shut the motor down when you attempt to get anywhere past neutral or engage the blade. These "safety" switches may be needed by a very few who prefer to be drunk while they mow lawns on steep slopes that their tractor mowers were not designed for, but I find these items to be troublesome and enfuriating. My trees shed a lot of sticks in high winds, and I can't stand shutting the machine down and restarting it EVERY SINGLE TIME I have to dismount to clear sticks or other obstructions out of my mowing path. This is an obnoxious, "nanny-design" feature that desparately needs to be discontinued. It also makes both jump-starting the tractor and electrical troubleshooting much more difficult than they should be. The tractor should let you dismount without shutting down, as long as you have disengaged the blade and shifted into neutral. It should also let you jump start with jumper cables - impossible to do with your rear end in the seat. By the way, call Manufacturer's Supply, Inc. at 1-800-826-8563. They may have a replacement - their item number 31-9664 might do it, but talk to them first. I'm calling them tomorrow. Good luck.

I need to installhow to install a new deflector on Craftsman mower model 917273130?


Very simple. The 6 inch or so pin that holds it on is retained by a clip on one end. To remove clip use a pair of pliers. If you work steadily and carefully you will be able to reuse this clip. After removing clip, pull the pin out. Old deflector and spring be removed now. To get the spring right you have to try it in position before installing it. Just remember that the spring is holding the deflector down so when you are done installing, when you pick up on the deflector there is pressure holding it down. Don't put the pin clip on until you verify the spring force is correct because getting that spring clip off is the Hardesty pay off the job.

YTS 3000 clutch return spring noise, sounds like it is rubbing on something when you release the clutch but I can't even find the spring


The spring will be attached to the tensioner pully right on top, there is a threaded bolt with nut holding the spring on, I just had to order the clutch cable because the spring broke, from rubbing on metal when engaging and disengaging the clutch lever.

Mower Belt Won't Engage


The fact is that belts don't stretch. They wear down on the sides, causing them to ride deeper in the pulleys and they APPEAR to be longer. Check belt "width" to see if it is less than one half inch. Most craftsman riders use half-inch (AKA: "A section") belts.

Spring is broken


There are many springs on a riding mower. Is it the clutch spring, the idler pulley spring, or maybe the blade brake springs. There are also springs on the brakes and even under the set. Please be more specific.

Clutch engages to start engine but wont move F or R


could be one of two things - if the clutch pedal just kinda flops and doesn't spring back, the clutch tensioner spring has broken. lift the hood and look at the frame on the front, right side, you'll probably see what's left of the spring hook hanging there - not easy to replace if you've never done it, take it to a shop - OR, an idler on the drive belt pivot has fallen off or broken...easier, but still some work. the small clunk you heard has me leaning toward the spring
