That model number des not show up as a good number on the http://www.searspartsdirect.com site. Are you sure you have the belts on correctly? If it has 2 belts on the deck & 1 is not installed correctly they work against each other. Safely make sure that each blade will turn by hand. did you take the blades off? If they are too long by just a fraction, they will hit ach other, but that usually makes quiet a noise. Get your book out & systematically go over everything you touched or changed. It sounds like something really simple you have overlooked. you can go to http://www.searspartsdirect.com & enter a good model number & view all of the parts diagrams. Sometimes they are a big help, & at other times they just confuse you more:). Let me know what you find!!

SOURCE: Found large spring at end

There are 4 pulleys on your deck. Two for the blades, these are the big ones on the outsides. To the insides there are two, one on left side is an idler and the one on the right is a tenioning pulley that hooks to the blade engage lever throught the cable you found. Look on top of this pulley and see if it has a piece sticking up. If so the spring at the end of the cable attaches here. Slide it over. You also need to find the clip that goes through the little hole in the end that keeps it from sliding off. Make sure that the cable is properly routed and attached near the back of the deck. If it is still attached, good, if not you will have to find that pin also.

If this is helpful, please rate.

I took my Pioneer SX-450 Receiver and Pioneer CT-1040W Tape Deck apart to move it. Put it back together. Now can't get a tape to play.


After putting a known good tape in the deck, push play, if the tape doesn't move, try rewind and FF. If nothing happens, the deck has a problem. I assume this is a cassette deck. If so, I always try the thrift stores for a new(used) one. There are good bargains there.

My PTO cable with the spring on the end came off. I'm trying to reconnect the spring from the PTO cable but I have no idea where to connect it too. Please help!


Not sure what PTO cable you are talking about but if you are referring to your manual deck engagement lever with a cable and spring I may be able to help..This happened to a friend of mine..what you are going to do is lower the deck as far as possible and get the mower off the ground so you can early see the operation..then have a friend work the manual lever back and forth while you kids hold the cable towards the deck..this will,give you and idea about where it should be attached...the using a bright light look for some shiny area where the spring or cable would have been attached and wearing the paint off...Note. The spring and cable pull an idler wheel or spindle on the deck to engage the moving belt to make it mow, try locating that and move it by hand...it should have an attachment or holes, look closely possibly it did not just come off the end may be broken...good luck..

Found 4or 5in.small spring laying near pullies on deck can you tell me where it goes


It may be the return spring for the idler pulley. Look for a vertical tab with a notch or hole in the top end. One end of the spring will attach there. The other end will attach to the movable idler mechanism.

Where does the spring on the craftsman 1000 hook


If you are talking about the spring that allows you to dissengage the deck blades, the back end attaches to the hook or hole on the lever and the front attaches to a hook or hole on the front of the top of the deck.

I need to replace the Spring.ext on my Craftsman XLT1000 Tractor. It is part number 917272420 or #61 in the owners manual. I cannot see where the spring attaches to - but it looks like it goes to one


This is on the end of the deck lift cable. fwd side attaches to the top of the carriage bolt (146) with pin (45). The back end is attached to the cable (not listed in manual that i can see) and the Sway Bar Bracket 38/42" deck (4) with pin (149).
