SOURCE: Craftsman self propelled lawn mower will not propell

Take off the cover up front on the self propel. Engage the self propel and make sure your cable is not broken. If that is ok then remove the wheels and inspect the molded cogs on the inside of the wheels and make sure they are not stripped out. If they are stripped go to www.sears.com and on the tool bar click on parts direct. Under model number enter yours and it will take you to a parts diagram. Get the part number for the wheels and go to local small engine parts dealer and get new. You can also do a search on the web for the wheels and maybe get them cheaper.

Good luck and let me know if this helps or you need any more help.

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

Where does the spring on the craftsman 1000 hook


If you are talking about the spring that allows you to dissengage the deck blades, the back end attaches to the hook or hole on the lever and the front attaches to a hook or hole on the front of the top of the deck.

How do you assemble the two springs on a sprint 375 briggs and stratton ?


The ends of both springs hook at the loop of the metal linkage connecting the governor vane and throttle shaft. The other end of the small spring hooks onto a small upright plate approximately 1 inch towards to the front of hooked end of the spring. The longer spring hooks onto a large hole in the throttle plate.
A problem that does occur is the plate becomes bent when the mower us pushed under shrubs. This drops the speed of the mower to a low idle. If this is the case then with a pair of pliers, gently twist that metal plate to obtain a RPM setting of 3,100. Don't be tempted to increase the revs to much or the conrod will break and punch a hole through the engine block.

I just got the kit 175067. Have the old one off except for where it's attached to the lever, schedule and weather has kept me from going further. Very simple to reconnect things at the pulley and above but not too sure how to connect the rest onto the lever and haven't had a chance to get a good look at how the old one might be connected yet. Should be a simple fix.

Where does the manual clutch cable mower deck spring connect to on a Craftsman YS4500?


It should connect on top of the idler pulley on the idler arm. The bolt is extended and the spring hooks over it with a 'hairpin' or cotter key through the hole in the end to hold it on.
