SOURCE: need a blade engagement cable diagram for a 2002 craftsman lt1000

as far as i know, there is no diagram available for the cable replacement. it is covered briefly in the owner's manual, but the best way to do it is to study carefully how the old one is routed, and replace a step at a time

My craftsman LT 1000 wouldn't start, it's silent. I changed my battery - still the same.


1. try jumping your mower battery with your car/battery and see if it cranks. If it does, charge your battery. If it doesnt
2. try jumping directly from battery to starter. If that works, its your starter solenoid. If it doesnt,
3. change the starter.
I would need engine model number in order to find your part numbers.

are you saying you get no click when turning the key? the starter solenoid should make a clicking sound atleast...sounds more like a safety switch. either located under the seat or on the clutch /brake pedal is not allowing the circuit to be complete so you can start the machine. if the blades are engaged it won't start/ if brake is not depressed it won't start/ if your not sitting in the seat it won't start...each one of these areas have a microswitch that can stop it from starting when turning the key. under the seat its usually a large round button you can depress several times then try again...disconnect and reconnect all the microswitches and look for corrosion on the electrical connections when you do. I hope this helps you

If the engine is hot. when you off it will not start again mitsubishi carisma


Vapor lock is a problem that mostly affects gasoline-fueled internal combustion engines.
It occurs when the liquid fuel changes state from liquid to gas while still in the fuel delivery system. This disrupts the operation of the fuel pump, causing loss of feed pressure to the carburetor or fuel injection system, resulting in transient loss of power or complete stalling. Restarting the engine from this state may be difficult.
The fuel can vaporize due to being heated by the engine, by the local climate or due to a lower boiling point at high altitude. In regions where higher volatility fuels are used during the winter to improve the starting of the engine, the use of "winter" fuels during the summer can cause vapor lock to occur more readily.

My name is dave...i live in michigan..i have a snow blade hooked up to my craftman 1000 LT..20hp..my question is..should I use craftman 30sae motor oil during the winter months?


During the winter months where the temperature is frequently below freezing, most engine maunufacturers recommend to use a 10W30 SAE oil.
The thinner, multi-weight oil will allow your tractor to start easier in the colder temp. When the temps are higher, just go back to the 30W SAE oil.
Remember to always use a high quality oil. Lawn tractor engines use the same quality of oil as cars do, so get yourself some Pennzoil or Castrol or Havoline or whatever you normally use in your car.
Most lawn tractor engine use about 48 ounces to perform a complete oil change.

Good luck!

What motor oil weight should I be using on my 96 olds 88....we live where the winter temps can go as low as -10 F and as hot as 95F in the summer


5w 30 or 10w 30 during the winter. After an oil change... check your oil after 200-300 miles of use. Is the level the same? If so your weight is fine. If it drops, it's to light of an oil and your engine is now "drinking it" like fuel, move to a heavier weight. As far as Changing between winter and summer. Changing Oil weights is not bad for your motor so if the winter you go with 5w 30 and it works, great, shoot for the same during the summer. If it seems to "drink it" during the summer using this weight, go up to the next (10w 30)

That being said. Changing from natural oil, to synthetic, back to naturual , or vice versa... swapping back and forth between these KINDS of oil has been known to cause damage. so whatever weight you decide on, stick with one "type", natural or synthetic.

your radiator could be getting stopped up. also water pump could be weak. during summer though you have electric fans that should be working. need to check. you can purchase some stuff called water wetter by redline racing oil that will drop water temp 20 degrees which is substantial when a thermostat is usually 180 to 190 and boiling is 212.

Battery is dead and I want to charge it and take it in for replacement


Boost your car with jumper cables and let the car idle or drive around for about 20 minutes for the alternather charge the batter on its own .if the car shuts off after you started it might be your alternather is no good . the reason why ur alternather might not be working is because the batter all it does is give enough power for the starter to crank the engine as soon as the engine starts running it gets all its juice from the alternather and it charges the batter as well. but some times when the alternather works and the batter is dead meaning all the cells inside the batter are dead it will never take the charge from the alternather. so you would have to change the batter.

if you would like to know how you can you test both parts useing a volt-a-meter... just ask...

p.s. I think its ur batter if you never changed it. so get that changed for the winter so you wont have any more starting problems during cold wheaters
