Replacing front wheels on Craftsman 917.273013

Am trying to determine the proper way to replace the front wheels on my tractor. The diagram for the steering assembly on Page 42 of the manual suggests I should begin by sliding on the two larger washers, then the tire, then a smaller washer, the retaining clip and the hub cap. ... On Page 28, a drawing in the maintenance section shows the two larger washers on the outside of the tire. ... The two drawings contradict each other. Can anyone tell me which is correct? Many thanks

Make sure you are putting the wheel on the right way. The rim may be off-set. The longer part of the hub should be on the inside.

You can find your manual at:
http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/16827/CRAFTSMAN-Lawn-Tractor-L0030155?brand_name_search=917270760+CRAFTSMAN
Parts are available at www.searspartsdirect.com
You won't find detailed instructions there, but there are parts diagrams that will help you determine what to remove first. I can't imagine why you'd need to replace this whole assembly, but the diagrams should be helpful.

belt routing diagrams are sometimes on the underside of the running board [so when you are laying on your back, you can look up and see it, left side usually]. on a 46 inch deck, it's probable that the diagram is on the rear, center of the deck, you can see it by going behind the tractor, kneeling down and looking forward at the deck

Look under the front between the wheels at the tie rod that connects the two wheels. It is probably bent up and should be straight. If it's bent, remove it a straighten it.
