There is not enough space here to describe the replacement procedure. some helpful tips though - order the part you are replacing [ordering from sears tell them: division 71, source 917, part no. 159471] before you tear into it. sitting around for 3 or 4 weeks, you'll probably forget where things attach. also, find the exploded parts diagram in your owner's manual and look it over carefully to see what you're getting yourself into. sometimes, it's worth a few bucks to let a competent shop do the work

How o you change the lift assembly on a craftsman ZTS 7500 mower ?


Should be relatively simple. There are 4-5 cotter pins that connect the mowing deck to the bottom of the mower. Pull the pins, push the metal rods out, and remove the deck!

Remove mower spindle star is stripped blade moves


If star is actually stripped, you will have to replace the whole spindle assembly and blade. I would not change just the shaft if I was you as its almost as expensive as the whole assembly.

How to install Mower blade drive belt on 19.5 HP Craftsman 42" Lawn Tractor-Model # 917.270810, without removing mower from tractor.


Hi donsig245,
What I do is to drop the mower assembly to the ground, then I have enough room to install the drive belt without having to remove the mower assembly. You could put the tractor on blocks to lift it up higher so the mower might go a little lower, but it is the same procedure to install the belt. That is the only way I know to install the belt without removing the mower assembly. I know this is not what you wanted to hear, maybe somebody might have another idea that would help you. Regards and good luck.

The bolt holding the blades is broken off


Your st bet is to replace the entire spindle assembly.
Craftsman part number 130794,3e9889e.jpeg
It's not as cheap as drilling out the old bolt and using an "easyout" tool to remove it, but the outcome is certain.

Better yet do a web search on "137645, 137646 Shaft Kit For 130794 Mandrel, AYP" and you can find the shaft only with bearings.

Need image, assembled craftsman model 917.276813 lawn mower deck


Go to www.sears.com and on the tool bar click on parts direct. On the opening page click on model # and enter your model number. Then on the page that opens there will be a list of components. Click on the deck and it will give you an image of the deck with part numbers.

Hope this helps. Let me know.
Thanks
