SOURCE: replacing the blades on a craftsman dyt 4000

Not a hard job, but you will need a couple of tools. First, you will need a wrench that fits the nut that is holding the blade on. I prefer a closed end wrench, but an open end will do. Second, you will need a blade changing tool. The brand name is called a Blade Hog. It attaches to the deck and holds the blade in place so you can turn the nut. Raise the deck as high as it will go, attach the Blade Hog, and then loosen and remove the nut. Be sure and pay attention to which side is up on the old blade and put the new one on in the same manner.

hope this helps,
c

there is a fuse in engine compartment that might have blown causing the engine or blades not to start but what probably happened was something got caught in the blades check under the deck & see if there is & also try spinning blades by hand & see what happens

SOURCE: what engines will fit craftsman dyt 4000 (18.5 blew w/ 290 hours)

Hi there
The only thing you have to do is have the size (diameter) and lenght (from cranckcase to end of shaft) of the shaft you have on your b&s and just go to your local Honda dealer , give them your shaft size and they should be able to give you all the options for a brand new motor . I really believe you can get a Honda 20hp model GXV620 or a 24hp model GXV670 that will replace your B & S motor .
Hope this help .

SOURCE: My Craftsman DYT 4000 keeps popping out of gear.

your trans. is broke, if you can keep using it i would, fixing transmission problems is more often than not more expencive than a new transmission, only the trans. will be effected ( it wont hurt the motor or anything) Six years is a little early to have these problems but seeing how much you use it, im not shocked by it

I have a DYT 4000 from 2004. Cutting the lawn today, about half way through something inside the engine popped (sounded like a belt) and the tractor shut off. I tried to restart and the starter was FLYING...


Sounds like an internal engine failure. Take the spark plugs out and stick a screw driver in the the cylinders. Then turn the engine by hand, and see if the pistons move. My guess is one or both won't, but if they do then you'll need to do more testing like a compression test or leak down tests. You may even need a partial tear down to find the problem. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it is possible that it is repairable rather than having to purchase a whole engine.

Engine piston


SOUNDS like you have done a big end and when the oil gets warm the oil gets thinner and so doesent lub the engine so good and what you can hear is the piston either hitting the head or the bigend worn bearings on 1 cylinder banging on the crankshaft as they have to have oil there to lub and to pressure the bearings while running SO WHEN you get it rebuilt change your oil to a 20W40 in winter and 20W50 in summer and change it every 50 hrs for your own sake.

24 hp intek has no power when under a load mainly when blades are engaged blows smoke like crazy.i pretty sure rings are shot,but the no powers got me stumped. valves are adjusted properly. i thought it...


I have good news for you,well sort of,the rings are probably ok.The intek engine is noted for blown head gaskets.They leak between the cylinder and the push rod chamber.A way to check is to start the engine for a minute,turn it off and pull the dipstick out,if you see vapors coming out of the oil fill tube it has a leaking head gasket.To check to see which cylinder is leaking, check the plugs,there will be a oil residue on one or even a brown crusty build up on the side that has the leaking head gasket.If you remove the head you will probably see a small piece of the gasket is missing on one side of it.
