SOURCE: replacing the blades on a craftsman dyt 4000

Not a hard job, but you will need a couple of tools. First, you will need a wrench that fits the nut that is holding the blade on. I prefer a closed end wrench, but an open end will do. Second, you will need a blade changing tool. The brand name is called a Blade Hog. It attaches to the deck and holds the blade in place so you can turn the nut. Raise the deck as high as it will go, attach the Blade Hog, and then loosen and remove the nut. Be sure and pay attention to which side is up on the old blade and put the new one on in the same manner.

hope this helps,
c

SOURCE: craftsman DYT 4000, 24 hp 48

there is a fuse in engine compartment that might have blown causing the engine or blades not to start but what probably happened was something got caught in the blades check under the deck & see if there is & also try spinning blades by hand & see what happens

Hi there
The only thing you have to do is have the size (diameter) and lenght (from cranckcase to end of shaft) of the shaft you have on your b&s and just go to your local Honda dealer , give them your shaft size and they should be able to give you all the options for a brand new motor . I really believe you can get a Honda 20hp model GXV620 or a 24hp model GXV670 that will replace your B & S motor .
Hope this help .

Sounds like the machine stopped charging,usually caused by a faulty rectifier/regulator or a bad connection to it.Try either charging the battery for an hour or so or you can put booster cables from your car to it and then if everything is ok you need to fix the charging system,or replace the battery[once they are sulphated they will not take a charge even if the charge system works].Check the connections to the battery as well and if you can test the tractor when it is running and see if the voltage stays between 14 and 15 volts.Let me know how you make out.
