    I must be getting tired that was supposed to be a clarification request.

    Go here:

    Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)

    Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals

    06 1500198

    06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)

    15 = week produced - March

    00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

    Open the correct IPL and you can probably see all muffler mounting components (Detail F on the 359 listed).

What's your problem? Why would the bolt continue to back out of a brand new CRAFTSMAN MOWER ELECTRIC CLUTCH on my ZTR?

The only thing i can think of is that the woodruff key has fallen out, this would allow the clutch to spin on the crank and loosen the bolt, if the key is there and the clutch bolt is tight it just cannot come loose, is the crank worn, i e is the clutch a loose fit on the crank??

I have a Craftsman LT 2000. I ran over a dog chain and now the blade is loose. It rattles loudly if I engage the blade. Everything seems intact and tight except the blade itself. Any advice would be...

If the bolt holding the blades on is tight, then you will need to remove the deck and remove the blade to inspect the five pointed star on the bottom of mandrel (that is what sears calls it, other manuf. call it a spindle) . If this is damaged you will need to replace the mandrel. They run a little over sixty dollars.

I hope this is helpful.

Unit makes a rattling noise ,compressor vibrates when it comes on ,i can't tell if fan is loose or compressor is vibrating? i did notice the compressor is loose,is it supposed to be bolted down tight?

Yes, the compressor should be bolted down tight enough to be pressing against the springs beneath it, but not so tight that it completely smashes the springs. If there are no springs beneath the compressor that could also be the cause of the noise problem.

It's definitley not supposed to be loose or wobbly. Take a look at it and see exactly where it's loose, you may be able to tighten it using the bolts on the pulley. Otherwise if the pulley itself is bad you'll have to replace it.

Oil leaking from two screws on exhaust model10a902 type 2272 quattro 40 thanks ray

Most likely engine has been tipped on it's side, and the muffler is full of oil. Does it smoke? The oil will eventually burn off anyway, but if anything is able to leak past the mounting bolts, they must be loose. Check that the bolts are tight, and the lock washer is present and not rusted away.

HI The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:

Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.

Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.

Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.

Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.
