Question about Craftsman 20 Hp 42" Deck Lawn Tractor

Open Question

Can anyone tell me where the "choke" is on this Craftsman LT3000? I bought from a friend and he has misplaced the Manuel. It needs a little bit of work. Front lights don't work Tires needs air and the guard for the blade needs a tire on it. Thanks for any information here.

SOURCE: 2003 DLT3000 Craftsman riding mower. Air in tires

when you put the new blades on did you notice if they were even with each other? the 42" decks have a tendency to "warp" inward on the left side. this causes the left blade to ride at an angle to the right blade - there is a tool to correct this, but not all shops have it - sometimes you can remove the deck, flip it over and wallop the inside edge of the left mandrel until the blades are even - a 2 lb. sledge works well for this

What size is for a craftsman LT3000 blade belt 42 in deck?


June, google search your make, model #, deck belt.
LT3000 is not a model # , The model and serial number of a Craftsman riding mower is located on the frame under the seat, or on the underside of the seat.

Motor chokes and misses under moderate load and loses power


Sounds to me as tho it might need a carburetor adjustment, providing there is an adjustment screw on the carb. Sounds like the engine is running a bit lean. Did this problem occur right after the carb cleaning, or was it there in advance? Is there a fuel filter that might be clogged?

Runs on choke a little


sounds like the carburetor has gummed up a bit, and may need adjustments - or, the fuel pickup in the tank has come loose [i.e.: deteriorated fuel lines] - also, make sure your gas mix is FRESH. if your gas mix is more than 2 months old, dump it

Starts easy and idles well with choke on full. Dies in run


Open the air adjustment screw a bit more. There's usually plastic piece that stops you from opening it up. I always break off the plastic.(damn engineers) It's not getting enough gas.
