Question about Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor

1 Answer

My Craftsman Lawn tractor (several years old) is a Model No. 27081, 19.5 HP automatice transmission, 42 inch, two-blade mulching tractor. I actually had one of those warranties where they fix it forever and let it expire!*?!*%#$%!. Now I don't even find it listed anywhere. It is the model that had the funky carbeurator, that if you get the least bit of moisture in it, you have to clean the fuel lines etc. Can I get parts for this machine anywhere?

Parts for your riding mower (except engine) should be available through www.searspartsdirect.com for at least 10 years from date of mfg and sometimes as long as 30 years. When you go to the website, you will need the tractors model number. It is located on a sticker on top of the rear fender assembly. Raise the seat to see it. It probably looks something like 917.385880 . The engine parts are available through sears or through other online sources such as www.partstree.com or www.milacalawn.com . For engine parts, you will need the model and serial numbers from the engine. These numbers are usually located on a metal plate that is riveted to the upper shroud, or on a sticker on the side of the upper shroud. Find a local mower repair shop, they will also have access to these parts for you. Your local shop will usually be alittle higher in price, but will offer installation advice that is priceless.
Good luck!

Disengage mulch drive


Have you looked beneath the deck with someone engaging or disengaging the blade lever? Get underneath and observe how the belt travels from the engine pulley back, and follow it in the loop it travels to see how it works with the lever engaged and disengaged.

yes that is most likely the cause of it, also, you have to cut more often when mulching, and the higher the cutting deck, the more likely the grass will blow out without getting mulched enough. More than likely, the blades are dull, and/or the grass is too high, or possibly even wet if it is high.

The straight blade for the 42 inch mower is 138971.They cut better and are easier to sharpen and you will need them if you use a gass catcher. If you do not want to use sears for parts you may be able to find good deals on ebay.
