SOURCE: mounting snow blade to lawn tractor

It attaches the the front of the tractor. Similar to a plow to a truck. If you don't have the brackets, you will need those, or make your own. You can see a picture of the brackets if you go to sears.com. Click on the PartsDirect link at the top, and enter the blade model number.

How do I wire a 18hp Briggs & Stratton engine to a craftsman GT5000 lawn mower


I dont have all your anwers. In my experience, Kohler frequently has wires to start, run and stop the engine. They also frequently have a low oil and/or high heat control (engine shut down). Also expect a wire from the charging system. On your tractor, you probably have similar plus 'operator presence' wires. These wires require to you to be sitting in the seat for the machine to operate - a seat switch for example. On my tractor, I can depress the 'brake' (which isnt exactly a brake in fact) and the engine will run when I dismount. However, if the mower is engaged, no matter what, if I get off the tractor, the engine shuts down.

You will have to determine what every wire is for and connect it properly. You may lose some engine 'functionality' or tractor safety features. It is never easy to put a Ford starter on a Chevy. Good luck with your project.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

I need a wiring diagram for sears model 917.272066 riding lawn mower


Should contact SearsPartsDirect.com,they have all the wirings on all their Craftsman lawn tractors. There is another way you might find a wiring diagram. Look in back of your Owner's Manual,i have found a wiring diagram & part numbers to include,the whole tractor is broken down in a diagram format. There are other lawn mower shop that should have a wiring diagram,i.e. AMCParts.com. Hope this helps.Sincerely,Brad Locke DTD 12/04/15

How can I test a riding mower regulator? (puts out 23 amps @ 3800 rpms. My dmm only goes up to 10 amps.(system won't charge battery while in operation. Can it be tested off the mower? Mower is a Craftsman...


Simplest test is to leave it on the engine, battery hooked up normally. Run the engine at normal full speed (not just idling) and use your voltmeter to measure the voltage across the battery with your DMM. If you measure 13.5 to 14 volts, your rectifier/regulator is probably OK.
It can't easily be tested off the mower. You'd need a source of AC at 24 volts to simulate the motor's stator winding, and a load that draws about 23 amps at 12 volts.
Don't forget a bad battery can cause failure to charge - it's not always the regulator.

I have a 17.5 hp craftsman 42" lawn tractor. I can't keep the battey charged for more than two uses. I need information on how to trouble shoot te system. I also need t find the alternator


My 24HP 42" had the same problem. If your model is like mine, there are two black wires with a yellow connector coming down the side of the engine. Unplug those wires, and with engine running, and a multimeter leads attached to them measure for 15 volts AC. If bad it is alternator, which is located under fly wheel. If good reconnect yellow wires, and test the single red wire with multimeter red test lead connected and black test lead to any engine ground point. Measure for 15 volts DC. My problem was that square regulator that did not convert 15 VAC to 15 VDC. If your tractor is less than two years old, the warranty will cover labor and repair. Also if your tractor's wiring has different color wires, the test procedure may be different.

Check the adjustment from the lever to the transaxle, if the linkage is ok the transaxle may be suffering from age and has leaking internal seals.

My 17.5 Kohler engine runs for about ten minutes and then blows the 20 amp fuse. I have gone over every wire on this tractor and there are no bare wires.
