SOURCE: Removing tire from SEARS CRAFTSMAN LT1000 TRACTOR.

You need to remove the black rubber cap from the center of the wheel. Remove the "C" clip from the axle and the wheel should come off. The rear tires will have a square key in it. Do not loose the key.

SOURCE: replacing engine. Briggs 26hp on GT5000 garden tractor

Unfortunately, there is no single manual for this. It depends entirely on what crankshaft the OEM requested be used in the engine. You need to find out the diameter of the crankshaft and any threading to it, direction of the threading, etc. From there, a replacement can usually be found pretty easily. That or contact Briggs customer support (number in your owners manual) with the Model, Type and Code numbers off the engine. From this information they can see how the engine was outfitted for that OEM. Horsepower tells them nothing as those ratings and stickers are often replaced by the OEM and often NOT the information Briggs sends out on the engine.

SOURCE: Craftsman DGS 6500 garden tractor won't engage

Hi
There is a pin in the back by the hitch - make sure it is pushed in. If it is pushed in then check to see if there are any oil leaks under it.

Need manual craftsman 917257550


I don't see this manual available for free online. However, Sears Parts Direct has the manual as part 140952 for less than $5. See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/craftsman-parts/riding-mower-tractor-parts/140952/0071/917/Model-917257550/0247/1509200?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=10032978&diagramPageId=00003&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=917257550&subCompDesc=Drive&brandDesc=CRAFTSMAN&modelDesc=IMPROVED-ROCKER-ARM-AND-PIVOT-LAWN-TRACTORS&blt=11&shdMod= to order a copy. There is a second manual, part 140953, that isn't available from the Sears Parts Direct site. It may be available by special order by contacting Customer Service and telling the agent that a "research request" is needed. Provide the model and serial number of the tractor.

I hope this helps.

I have a sears craftsman riding lawnmower 5 years old. It will steer only hard to the left and will not turn to the right. the steering wheel turns but the mower does not. any suggestions


I had the same problem with my 15 year old Craftsman lawn tractor. I tried to adjust the steering travel but it gave me marginal relief for a year until the steering failed with my steering wheel spinning freely and the wheels free to go left and right. The left bias for steering indicates that the steering shaft pinion weld was shearing prior to failure.


I took the steering apart and found that the drive pinion gear was sheared off the end of the steering shaft at the weld. I replaced the shaft and sector gear to fix this issue.


This fix requires good amount of mechanical disassembly to get the replacement parts in place so you might need to go to a shop to get a mechanic to fix this if you aren't set up for this kind of fix by disconnecting the mower deck and jacking up the front end to access the steering gear assembly and steering arm links.

Sears has one convenient location on the web to get all your Craftsman parts. They carry most parts for you tractor for at least 20 years.
You can get a new belt from searspartsdirect.com. You will need the model number off the mower to find and order the part. The number looks like 917.123456.
When you enter the model number into the search box at searsparts diagrams will pop up. You can locate the belts and order right there.

If you can't figure out the diagrams, you can go to any Sears store and they will help you order the part. All Craftsman parts are plus shipping.

Craftsman lt 2000, blade not staying in place


i would need a complete sears model number to look this up for you, however, you will need to remove the intire blade spindle housing, then you can remove just the shaft from the housing. and just replace the shaft. Will save a lt of money.
if you can find the complete model number you can go on the internet to

mtd.com/parts or to ayp.com/parts

and you can pull up a parts diagram and find the exact part number and order it online, or take model number to sears and they will either have it in stock or can order it for you. Sears will however cost you a fair amount more then ordering online. I hope this helps you

How do i replace the lift shaft assembly on my craftsman lawn tractor? model number 917.272442.


there is not enough space here to describe the replacement procedure. some helpful tips though - order the part you are replacing [ordering from sears tell them: division 71, source 917, part no. 159471] before you tear into it. sitting around for 3 or 4 weeks, you'll probably forget where things attach. also, find the exploded parts diagram in your owner's manual and look it over carefully to see what you're getting yourself into. sometimes, it's worth a few bucks to let a competent shop do the work
