SOURCE: excessive smoke when runing oil in exhaust

Sounds like it could be a blown head gasket betwen the cylinder and valves. The gasket is very thin in that area and is a common problem. Not a recommended fix for a novice. Best taken to a shop..... Dwain

SOURCE: Craftsman lawn tractor model new battery drains quickly...

it could be the stator in the engine check the voltage with the volt meter when its running if its low check connections on battery & voltage if its below 12.5 volts then its the stator but the only thing is the engine should run with-out the battery so there is something else going on there is a fuse in the electrical system if theres a short that fuse will blow & engine will stall

Check the limit switches. They may not be opening. You have several switches.

3.Brake switch

4.Gear Switch.

There is a specific order to these switches and One has to be engaged to allow another to work. Its safety built into the lawn tractor. You just need to download the operators manual. And possibly download the shop manual to get locations of these switches.

Blown fuse

Follow you positive cable from your battery to the solenoid. There will be a smaller red wire on the same terminal or built into the battery cable. The inline fuse will be on it. Or, you can look on the right hand side under the dash about 6 inches above the bottom. The solenoid is mounted on the side and the fuse is there.
