Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model

Open Question

We just purchased a Craftsman Lawn Mower model #247.38909 that has a built in 'deck wash' feature. After mowing the lawn, we tried to use that feature. We connected the hose as directed to the coupler and attached the coupler to the water port. No water comes out. There is something about the coupler that is preventing the water to go through. We double-checked all connections - still no water passes through the coupler. Any ideas?

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

SOURCE: Craftsman 42 inch cutting deck riding lawn mower.

Some of the 42 inch Craftsman mowers Have a cable that goes from the blade leaver to the deck some have a linkage if it has the cable check it to see if it has broken. Find where it connects to the deck pully and pull on the cable wire not the cable cover and see if if comes out also make sure it is connected to the top of the idler pully. If it has a linkage there is a clip that holdes that linkage to the deck it most likely came off.

Grass cutting blowing out from in front of mower deck.


Dull or bent blades can cause this. Make sure that the grass is not built up under the mowing deck. You can purchase new blades at a Toro dealer like www.arcolawn.com.

Disengaging blades when mowing completed


the cam plate that the tensioner pulley is mounted on that rotates back around to tighten the belt as the cable or rod is engaged is likely rusted and worn, there is a bushing in this pivot that can be removed and cleaned fairly easily with a abrasive wheel or pad and lubricated upon reassembly.
