SOURCE: Lawn mower will not start and run

Sounds like a clogged carb or a cracked primer bulb. I would install a carb rebuild kit and new primer bulb if your mower uses one.

SOURCE: my craftsman rotory lawn mower 6.5 hp self

You have water in in the carborator, I'll bet. I had this same problem. Here's what I did.

I emptied the gas tank, put in a new spark plug, changed the oil and then unscrewed thd big nut on the bottom of the float container (attached to the carborator near the rubber gas injector button) and emptied and cleand the float container. Then i put it all back together, pulled the cord and the same thing happened, but this time i could keep it going by having my daughter constantly pushing the rubber gas injector button. After it had run for a minute with this constant pushing of the button, all the water was gone from everytwhere and it worked.

SOURCE: Craftsman self propelled lawn mower will not propell

Take off the cover up front on the self propel. Engage the self propel and make sure your cable is not broken. If that is ok then remove the wheels and inspect the molded cogs on the inside of the wheels and make sure they are not stripped out. If they are stripped go to www.sears.com and on the tool bar click on parts direct. Under model number enter yours and it will take you to a parts diagram. Get the part number for the wheels and go to local small engine parts dealer and get new. You can also do a search on the web for the wheels and maybe get them cheaper.

Good luck and let me know if this helps or you need any more help.

SOURCE: Craftmans mower. Gear stripped.No more self propelled 917377131

Go to www.searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number and it will take you to the parts look up diagrams. Look for Browse subcomponents and you will find the gear case. Click on it and it will have an exploded view of the gear case and numbers by the part you need. Scroll down to the number of your part and it will have the part name, number and a price from sears. I suggest you go to your local small engine repair parts store and order there so you don't have to pay shipping.

Let me know if this helps.

Manual for 909 118cc petrol lawnmower key start


Not enough info to even what is it.

A lot of walk behind mowers now have throttle-less engines. These engines run at a predetermined govern speed which the operator has no control over.

Am trying to reassemble carburetor on craftsman model # 131907321 with engine # 143274132. Am having difficulty with clips that control butterfly and throttle control. Cannot remember how they reattach....


I don't think the normal users manual would help you. (sears says to contact them for the availability of it). You need a repair manual. I will continue research and probably repost, but in the meantime, this is all I have found on the "mower" so far. I am going after the engine now.

I need the linkage diagram for a 20 hp briggs and statton model 407777-0167


Besides the service manual you can view parts diagrams at a dealer like www.arcolawn.com. You can purchase the service manual at a dealer and it will show you how to hook it up.
The throttle linkage hooks up to the throttle shaft closest to the engine. the governor spring attaches the governor arm to the throttle linkage.
The choke cable attaches to the shaft farthest from the engine. I hope this helps.
PS your engine has two factory service bulletins on it.

I need a diagram showing how the throtel cable attaches to the carb on a Craftsman 17.5 hp, 42 in.,riding mower (NEW 2008)


The throttle cable doesn't attach to the carburetor. The 'z' bend in the end of the cable sticks in the white plastic slide at the bottom of the control plate on the left rear side of the engine and the cable is held in place by a clamp behind it.

Carb linkage hook up


Hello rebel_auto:

>>Send me the Make, Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you.
However, this File may Help.
**The Throttle Cable Attaches to the Throttle Control Bracket. The Cable Moves a Slide that Moves a Pivot. The Pivot has the Spring Attached to it and the Other End of this Spring Attaches to the Governor Arm. The Solid Link Connects to the Governor Arm and goes to the Throttle Shaft on the Carburetor. When the Throttle Cable is Moved it Moves the Pivot and the Pivot Pulls the Spring. The Spring Pulls the Governor Arm and the Governor Arm Moves the Throttle Shaft. Usually the Spring is in the Lower Hole in the Governor Arm and the Solid Link is in the Top Hole of the Governor Arm.**
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
