SOURCE: drive chain loose and poped offmy snowblower

Two things you can do. First if you look close you may see a spot where you can adjust the chain tension. Nest your chain should have what is called master link. Look close and you will see a clip that undoes the link. Pull the link out and the chain will come apart. If you are not mechanically inclined take it to any small engine shop and they will take a link out for you and then you will be home free.Hope this helps. donnyb60

SOURCE: Craftsman II model 917255911. Will

I couldn't find the manual for your tractor but I did fiind one for a 917255917 model it calls for a 71-25231 snow thrower. The 842 model you listed must not be complete number. There are several different models that start with 842. Does your tractor have the horizontal engine that has clutch on front, and drive pully on rear of engine? I used to have one like that and I had a sears blower on it. You'll need wheel weights and chains too.

Craftsman chainsaw chainsaw troubleshooting .....mine runs with choke on but speeds up and cuts off when i take choke off?

Check to see if the boot between the carbureator and the engine has a crack in it, if it is cracked air will leak in causing a lean mixture and hard starting. Also will not run unless the choke is on.

Adjust choke

I am not sure about yours but my Craftsman has a adjusting screw in the carb to set the gas. If it is choking you screw it in a little and if it falters screw it out a little. You should be able to adjust with it running. Just turn a little at a time. Mine uses a flat screw driver.

Could be a bad exhaust valve seat, sticking exhaust valve and possibly a lean running carburetor which is causing the engine to stall out on loads.

Need carb setting wont idle runs in spurts

There is usually a sticker with a craftsman Model Number on it, often "358.Something". That number can be used to find an IPL and if you are lucky an OM here: Sears PartsDirect Start at 1.5 CCW from lightly seated then tune for performance like this:
Carburetor Adjustment by
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too. HTH
