I don't see how you could use a repair manual to fix your Craftsman riding mower. I'm betting you'll need TOOLS instead, and maybe also parts!

I have a craftsman revolution riding mower and its having troubles turning to the left. model 247.28933 any ideas??


Check the steering rack cogs r
Are not missing each other as you turn the wheels left if the teeth gap increases as the wheels turn the rack is worn and will need adjusting so the teeth meat better or the rack will need to be replaced this . Part can be quite expensive I had a countax ride on same problem would not turn to the left easily or the steering wheel would just spin. Around but the front wheels did not move until you pushed them by hand 're engaging the cogs on the rack it was nearly £ 596+ vat just the parts needed to repair it

Paula, what are you calling the tension arm? What is this "arm" suppose to do? What is it that you are trying to accomplish? You may be taking the steering wheel off for nothing. I just can't visualize what you're looking to do, or what is wrong with the machine. You have a steering wheel, steering shaft ext, steering gear assy which has the steering shaft in it, a drag link, then a tie rod. I added a link to a similar type tractor for reference.

Two front wheels misaligned, one is straight and the other points outward


To give you a professional soultion I really need a complete model number.

Here is what happens when steering becomes a problem on ANY brand of riding mower.
1. Tie rods get bent
2. Wheel spindle pivots get bent on one side.
3. Pivot bearings or bushings get worn
4. Linkages from the steering wheel to the tie rod pivot connection get bent.

On the basic bottom of the line Craftsman riding mowers the tie rods are fixed and not adjustable. However if you look for a mirror image left to right of the tie rods often you will note that one of them is bent in or out... or is shorter than the other one. There are after market tie rods that are adjustable. This is over 40 years of experience talking here.
THe best way to do an inspection of steering is to place the mower on tripods so that the fram is being supported and not the steering components and then set the steering wheel to the straight position and inpsect ALL of the steering and suspension components for the front end.

Without your model number this is quite generic. With a model number I can show you a parts diagram by item number of what to check.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Craftsman Lawn tractor - When turning to the left the Left front wheel turns much farther then the right front wheel does on a hard right turn. Almost perpendicular to the tractor. Busings are brand new....


I've noticed this on other Craftsman and MTD mowers. The ones with the one main steering rod from the steering wheel to the left wheel and a connecting rod from the left wheel to the right wheel. I think that since we are advised to mow in a counter-clockwise direction, they design the mowers to turn tighter towards the left. It's in the design just like you suspected.

The steering assembly your mower has is very difficult to repair. Thank God they no longer make that type. Forget about trying to tighten that screw, it won't solve your problem anyway. Believe me, you should take it to a repair shop.

18hp craftsman riding mower model#917.255913. won't turn left!


I have had this problem for the longest time. I replaced the secondary gear twice. Helped for a brief period and now won't turn left again. Replaced the steering shaft and worked for a brief period. Back to no left turns once again. The issue is with the secondary gear and bearings (plastic) which is only a temporary fix. What I had done was welded a piece of steel to the bottom of the steering shaft eliminating the secondary gear connecting directly to the tie rod for the steering. Works perfect now.

My steering wheel is really sloppy on my craftsman lawn mower


Try this: Kit.steer.as PART NUMBER: 149686 Substitution: 167902
enter either of those numbers into your browser and find your best deal. I got mine from outdoor distributors, they had the best price. This is the whole assy, the individual parts add up to a lot more.
