Question about Craftsman 675 Torque 190cc 21" RearBag Push Lawn Mower ()

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman Gold 6.0 mulching mower with a B&S engine on it that has been idle for about 10 years. It was only lightly used before that and I ran the gas tank dry before putting it away. Today I put gas in the tank pressed the primer bulb 3X and pulled the cord a few times without it starting. I noticed gas dribbling out of the little hole in the center of the primer bulb. It continuously drips and the gas is puddling on the top deck of the mower. Is this likely a problem with the primer bulb or something else? Thanks.

Sounds like the primer bulb dry rotted from sitting &/or the float is stuck in carb. If gas is indeed leaking from bulb. It will need to be replaced. While it is apart, clean carb inside & out with spray carb cleaner.

12.5 gold ohv linkage


Sorry,not enough information about the motor. Need model # of the motor and the make of the motor,i.e.(Briggs & Stratton,Kolher or etc.). I haven't a clue,as to what motor is called a Gold model. I do know what you mean by, 12.5 hp and its a Over Valve(s),type of motor. What linkage,has the problem? The Choke or the Throttle linkage. No one is going to be able to help you with your motor,without more information. Sincerely,Brad Locke DTD. 12/03/15

How can I test a riding mower regulator? (puts out 23 amps @ 3800 rpms. My dmm only goes up to 10 amps.(system won't charge battery while in operation. Can it be tested off the mower? Mower is a Craftsman...


Simplest test is to leave it on the engine, battery hooked up normally. Run the engine at normal full speed (not just idling) and use your voltmeter to measure the voltage across the battery with your DMM. If you measure 13.5 to 14 volts, your rectifier/regulator is probably OK.
It can't easily be tested off the mower. You'd need a source of AC at 24 volts to simulate the motor's stator winding, and a load that draws about 23 amps at 12 volts.
Don't forget a bad battery can cause failure to charge - it's not always the regulator.

Replacement part for Craftsman 650 Briggs & Stratton 22" multi cut mower Model #917.376741


You first need to locate the model number on the mower, not the Briggs engine. Then go to searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number on the right side of the web page. This will take you to a list of parts for your mower. Your model number should be located on the deck of the mower (you didn't say if it was a rider or a push). Rider model numbers are located on the rear of the body behind, on or under the seat. Push model numbers are found on the back of the deck between where the handles attach to the frame.

Craftsman 6.5 lawnmower


The bag return on the 6.5 sits on two hooks. Standing to the left of the mower you should be able to grab the back handle with your left hand and then left the metal protective flap with your left hand so you can raise the bag assembly still in your right hand up and out of the two hooks. You'll then need to put back into the mower the mulching kit which blocks the rear discharge and makes the underside of the mower a complete circle so the mulching effect works. Obviously the mower will physically work without the mulching kit because the metal protective flap will cover the rear eject but it will NOT effectively mulch the clippings and you will get longer pieces that clump.

Hope this listing isn't too late to help.
