Craftsman Lawn tractor 20 hp twin clynder briggs with a 42 inch deck I need a model number the plate is unreadable


Maybe this will help.The mower deck part # 165892. Mower Deck Assembly 42" I not sure of the model # . I also don't know your tractor's model # either. This part # for the 42" mower deck,is installed on a 18.5 HP Craftsman Lawn Tractor. I believe there isn't any difference between a model !8.5 HP and a model 20.0 HP, tractor when it comes to a mower deck. B.Locke

I have a briggs model 407777 that was idling up and down from near top range to bottom. Found some dust in the carb intake and decided to cliean the carb. When removing the manifold/ carb, I took loose...


These can be tricky, but your on the right track. With throttle set on high (engine off), turn governor linkage in the same direction that opens throttle valve in carb wide open, then turn the governor rod in that same direction then tighten bolt on governor arm. This is a static setting. The high and low idle is most likely a dirty carb so assuming the carb is now clean your idle should be better. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Where is the spark plug located on my craftsman lawn tractor model 917.273360


James, it is at the front of the engine. It is next to the 4" by6" metal cover that says OHV. It is on the right hand side ( sitting on the tractor), There is a black wire the size of a pencil ( diameter ), hooked to it. It is set deep in the engines cylinder head. There is a rubber boot over the end of the spark plug. Remove the rubber boot, you will hace to grip it hard and pull it off. Then you will be able to remove it, using a deep 5/8" socket with a 4 to 6 inch extension.

Hope this helps, if you need more let me know.
