Craftsman LT 1000 mower I am having problems with


I have a LT 1000. I drilled out the holes in the gas cap. If they plug, you will notice the gas tank gets sucked in from the vacuum.

I have a Craftsman 2-cycle blower/vac and its only 3 years old and have changed out the spark plug and fresh mixed gas and still won't start. I need some help anyone know?


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage. May need to clean or replace carburetor.

A cable is loose that will not allow me to engage the blades, how do I reattach the cable. it is a craftsman Lt 1000 17 IC ohv . model # 917.272260 42 inch cut.


Tightening up a stretched cable is impossible. If the cable is NOT adjustable to shorten it and make it tighter, then you will need a new one. Here is a link to one. I searched all the parts diagrams in your manual for the cable and find it was NOT listed. I hope this helps as I have researched your problem. Go here:

2.0 Cubic Inch Montgomery Ward gas chain saw, 10 inch cutting bar


Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 3 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH
