A cable is loose that will not allow me to engage the blades, how do I reattach the cable. it is a craftsman Lt 1000 17 IC ohv . model # 917.272260 42 inch cut.


Tightening up a stretched cable is impossible. If the cable is NOT adjustable to shorten it and make it tighter, then you will need a new one. Here is a link to one. I searched all the parts diagrams in your manual for the cable and find it was NOT listed. I hope this helps as I have researched your problem. Go here:

I purchased a used Craftsman LT 1000 17 hp 42"


I've had to do this at least 5 times. If you look under the body, there are two supports that carry the mower deck and lift and lower it. Each of these has a nut that holds up the deck and the nut is on a stud that goes up and down when you raise or lower the lever. Put the deck in the middle of it's range, around #3, make sure the key is off, move your blades so they are on the right and left edge of the deck.
Get yourself a device to measure blade to ground height, I have a block of wood that is 3 inches long. Make sure your floor or ground is level and tires are properly pumped up. Then raise or lower the adjustment nuts until both sides are equal height.

Need to adjust brake/clutch 14hp craftsman lawn tractor


The brake is on the right side of the transaxle. There are two mounting bolts and one 1/2 nut in the middle that is your adjustment. Tighten it 1/2 turn at a time and hold the brake down and try to roll it until it holds.
