Tilt the mower back in a direction that brings the front (spark plug end) of the engine up and the back of the engine down if possible. This keeps the oil from going places it doesn't need too.
Under the deck of the mower you will find the blade bolt It will be in the center if the blade and should be a hex-head bolt Around the 1/2 " size. You will need to either jam the blade where it can't turn the motor while you attempt to loosen the blade bolt or enlist a helper wearing gloves maybe to hold the dull side of the blade still (if you can't hold it yourself). For easier removal of the blade bolt the next time around, coat the threads with Permatex Anti-Seize Dry Graphite Compound. You won't have it stuck or rusted next time.

I have a brand new craftsman 190cc lawnmower and the pull cord will not pull out


If it's new sometimes the manufacture puts a safety block to hold it from moving during transit. Check for this. See if the blade will turn and if not see if there is a seized area. Is the blade jammed against something.

I need a diagram of how to put the Blade belt on my Yardman 42' riding lawnmower


Yeah, these belts can seem impossible to figure out. There are idler pulleys that press against the back of the belt. The routing is sometimes not obvious. Do a search for your particular model.

42 deck craftsman riding mower. how do you get blades off? md 91721880.


On most riding lawnmowers, you can remove the blades reaching underneath the deck while the deck is set to its highest position. This may not be possible on lawnmowers with three blades; however, most 42 inch mowers have two blades.

The blades are usually held on with either one or two bolts (on each blade). Oftentimes, too, there is a lock washer underneath the bolt.

If you have auto ramps, it might help to push the front end of the mower up on the ramps. This can give you more room to access the blade bolts.

If the blades have not been removed before, those bolts can be on really tight. You might need to use some kind of breaker bar on your wrench to give you more leverage.
