I had both my front wheels wobbly - so I cut shims from a tin can - wrapped the axle of the wheels with the shims and then inserted them back into the plastic bushes. It was a snug fit - but helped quite a lot.

Hi judycdenn

You can get replacement wheels from most decent hardware stores, either with ball race bearings, or just plain old plastic bushes. they don't cost much, I would take in my old wheel to get one that fits.

But before you go buying spares for the mower... you should read this

    Did you get a new wheel to fit in the end?

I have a craftsman riding lawn mower model #917271080 42 inch cut. When the mower is moving, the right rear axle keeps trying to come off. How can I fix it?


If it is the axle and not the wheel, you will have to take the transaxle off and take the top off to inspect. Likely there is a clip that has slipped or failed.

On youtube you can find videos about how to crack it open and inspect them.

I hope this helps.

Two front wheels misaligned, one is straight and the other points outward


To give you a professional soultion I really need a complete model number.

Here is what happens when steering becomes a problem on ANY brand of riding mower.
1. Tie rods get bent
2. Wheel spindle pivots get bent on one side.
3. Pivot bearings or bushings get worn
4. Linkages from the steering wheel to the tie rod pivot connection get bent.

On the basic bottom of the line Craftsman riding mowers the tie rods are fixed and not adjustable. However if you look for a mirror image left to right of the tie rods often you will note that one of them is bent in or out... or is shorter than the other one. There are after market tie rods that are adjustable. This is over 40 years of experience talking here.
THe best way to do an inspection of steering is to place the mower on tripods so that the fram is being supported and not the steering components and then set the steering wheel to the straight position and inpsect ALL of the steering and suspension components for the front end.

Without your model number this is quite generic. With a model number I can show you a parts diagram by item number of what to check.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Craftsman Lawn tractor - When turning to the left the Left front wheel turns much farther then the right front wheel does on a hard right turn. Almost perpendicular to the tractor. Busings are brand new....


I've noticed this on other Craftsman and MTD mowers. The ones with the one main steering rod from the steering wheel to the left wheel and a connecting rod from the left wheel to the right wheel. I think that since we are advised to mow in a counter-clockwise direction, they design the mowers to turn tighter towards the left. It's in the design just like you suspected.

Can't get front wheel back on lawn tractor Craftsman 52-inch


Make sure you are putting the wheel on the right way. The rim may be off-set. The longer part of the hub should be on the inside.
