SOURCE: I purchased a used Craftsman LT 1000 17 hp 42"

I've had to do this at least 5 times. If you look under the body, there are two supports that carry the mower deck and lift and lower it. Each of these has a nut that holds up the deck and the nut is on a stud that goes up and down when you raise or lower the lever. Put the deck in the middle of it's range, around #3, make sure the key is off, move your blades so they are on the right and left edge of the deck.
Get yourself a device to measure blade to ground height, I have a block of wood that is 3 inches long. Make sure your floor or ground is level and tires are properly pumped up. Then raise or lower the adjustment nuts until both sides are equal height.

Hard to start


First I would suggest making sure your battery is completely charged and is in good working order. Have a "LOAD TEST" done on the battery.
Second check and clean all battery connections

If this does not help then you may have a bad starter drive and need to replace it

Try tracing the positive battery cable from the positive side to the solenoid
to make sure those connections are clean and tight. Then from the solenoid to the starter. Clean and tight. Last of all please check the Ground to frame connection.

I have a Craftsman LT 1000 riding mower that just quit running. Won't turn over or anything. Manual suggests checking fuse as one of the options. Only problem is, I can't find the fuse! Manual says it is...


Start with the easiest thing first !
1) jump start the battery from you automobile, or install a charger for an hour. This will tell you wether you battery or connections are good.
If it started with the jump, before you replace a battery:
2) clean the cable ends and make sure cable hardware to battery posts are good and clean.
If it started with the jump, then you know the fuses are good.
If it did not start with the jump or cleaned and charged battery,
3) check the in-line fuse. Located between the key switch and the solenoid, in the wiring harness, normally behind the firewall behind the engine, or in front of the dash close to the fuel tank (if the battery is under the seat)
4) some Sears tractors use a 'relay' also located on the firewall.

Note: for now, let's see how this works. Let me know if you need further assistance. It can get more complicated, but let's keep it simple for now. rwvanlue

Need a blade engagement cable diagram for a 2002 craftsman lt1000


as far as i know, there is no diagram available for the cable replacement. it is covered briefly in the owner's manual, but the best way to do it is to study carefully how the old one is routed, and replace a step at a time

Sounds like your starter is weak or either your making poor contact across your solinoid. Try the solinoid first and if that doesn't fix it then try the starter.
