How do you change cutting blade on a Sears Craftsman Mower?


Hi Bill:
Changing blades is pretty straightforward but does involve some Safety Hazards.
- Blades can have sharp bits - WEAR GLOVES
- Running engines can make the blade BITE - BAD
ALWAYS disconnect spark plug lead whaen changing blade.
Easy Part:
- Raise deck to maximum height
- If possible, park with front wheels on a ramp to get better access under deck.
- Use socket wrench to remove bolt from centre of blade. Here's where the gloves help as you hold the end of the blade to prevent it from turning when you apply force to remove the bolt.
TA DA! The blade will come off.
- To install new or sharpened blade (I use an angle grinder to sharpen mine) tuck it in place, install the bolt, snug it up, make sure any notches or splines line up, protect your hands (gloves) while you tighten the bolt. and you're back to cutting grass.
Cheerfuls.

26hp kohler engine started smoking suddenly. still runs good.whaat would cause this problem.


Head gasket blown. This is a very common issue with these V twin Kohler engines. There is a kit you can order from Kohler that includes gaskets and new improved head bolts. Simple hand tools is all that is needed. You will need an inch pound torque wrench. Torque specs are included in the kit.

What would cause 26hp kohler engine to start smoking suddenly?


Could be many things. Are you using multi viscosity oil instead of sae 30? Small engines will consume multi viscosity oil. Were you mowing or driving on a hillside when this happened? Is the oil level over the full mark? Could be worn piston rings, worn valve guides also.

Hi, first check the oil. If it smells like fuel, change the oil. Secondly if oil smells ok, check the valve clearances and adjust if incorrect. Let me know if the oil smells like fuel and I will help with a fix to stop it happening again. Regards Phil.

The belt that comes from the engine to mower deck keeps breaking. I've owned the mower for years and I have to buy atleast 12 belts per year. The problen is really bad now. A belt per cutting. I've...


I own a Craftsman rider, DTY 4000, 25 HP Kohler, 48" cut, 137 Hrs. It eats a belt about every mowing or two. Did all the stuff you did. Good luck from Sears. Had cousin who is owns a lawn & garden repair business look at it today. Says the prob. is this - The drive belt pulley (elec clutch) has too a narrow "V" and the angle of wear between it and the deck when the deck is in the lowered (mowing) position is too severe. If you notice with the deck in the fully raised position the pulleys line up perfectly. Then drop your deck and see how tightly bent the belt is downward and it makes sense as to why(my) belt would first roll over then break in a few minutes. The elec clutch pulley is sold as one unit PT No. 179334 $250.00, but I'm sure it would come with the same narrow V pulley. Waiting for word from my cousin. My last Sears Mower. Cannot even sell it in good faith.

Craftsman mower with 26hp kohler smokes


Check the oil and let it run to see if it clears up. Sometimes the oil will run into the cylinder when it is jacked up.

Craftsman mower with 26hp kohler smokes when i cut on hill, why?


what happens is the oil gets into the valves which will come out the exhaust when on level ground after a side to side or going straight down because the valve's are in the front of engine which is pointing to the front of mower you wont hurt the engine if it does that i would just check the oil often to make sure it doesn't run out
