Follow these steps:
1
Search for the gas tank next to the engine. Follow the fuel hose attached to the base of the gas tank to side of the carburetor on the engine. Squeeze the clamp holding the fuel hose to the side of the carburetor and slide the clamp up the hose a few inches.
2
Pull the hose off and direct it into the bucket to capture the gas.
3
Unscrew the red cable from the side of the starter with the proper-sized wrench.
4
Follow the throttle lever to the throttle linkage on the side of the engine. Unscrew and remove the throttle wire from the side of the engine with the correct screwdriver head.
5
Unscrew the bolts holding the engine to the frame of the riding lawn mower. Position a wrench on the bolt head on top and on the nut under the mower frame. Remove all the bolts.

6

Lean the engine forward and pull the belt off the pulley attached to the crankshaft under the engine. Pull the engine off the mower frame.

7

Place the pipe wrench on the crankshaft area above the pulley under the old engine. Hold the pipe wrench with one hand so the crankshaft doesn't rotate and then put the proper-sized wrench on the bolt holding the pulley on and unscrew it with your other hand. Place the pulley on the crankshaft of the new engine. Screw it on tightly.

8

Place the new engine on the riding mower frame. Slide the belt around the pulley as you set the engine down on the frame. Tighten all the bolts and nuts through the base of the new engine to secure it to the riding mower frame.

9

Reattach the throttle linkage, starter cable and the gas line to the new engine.

Take the handle apart to remove the cable from the finger trigger
The other end is fairly easy
It will simply weave out of the carburetor.
reverse this proceedure to reinstall

    You need a service manual. Most can be found on any GOOGLE search engine with the sears model number

For some reason, the model number didn't come up in google, or at the Sear's site. However, I did find Sear's question submittal site, and I would recommend you try to ask them, since they have the diagrams, manuals, etc. Here's the site page:

I tried to find a diagram, but had no luck. Perhaps this will be of assistance to you. Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa.
