the right and left side is by sitting on unit.
You will see a little hole in the top of the bolt a little pin goes in there and holds it in place.

That model number des not show up as a good number on the http://www.searspartsdirect.com site. Are you sure you have the belts on correctly? If it has 2 belts on the deck & 1 is not installed correctly they work against each other. Safely make sure that each blade will turn by hand. did you take the blades off? If they are too long by just a fraction, they will hit ach other, but that usually makes quiet a noise. Get your book out & systematically go over everything you touched or changed. It sounds like something really simple you have overlooked. you can go to http://www.searspartsdirect.com & enter a good model number & view all of the parts diagrams. Sometimes they are a big help, & at other times they just confuse you more:). Let me know what you find!!

Hi and welcome to FicYa, I am Kelly.

You will need to make sure that you have items 21 - 29 of this diagram: Scroll way down 75% until you see the deck and belt, then look at item 27 the deflector shield.

It is a matter of sliding the bolt throught bracket on the mower deck and making sure that the shield safety switch is actuated. (Flip up)

I also read the owner's manual (no help!). The only thing about the shield is on page 14 stating to make sure it is in place.

If your missing the hardware to install the deflector shield you can go to http:www.searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number in the search bar. You have to choose model search then click (go).
You will get this diagram if you choose mower deck:

I need to installhow to install a new deflector on Craftsman mower model 917273130?


Very simple. The 6 inch or so pin that holds it on is retained by a clip on one end. To remove clip use a pair of pliers. If you work steadily and carefully you will be able to reuse this clip. After removing clip, pull the pin out. Old deflector and spring be removed now. To get the spring right you have to try it in position before installing it. Just remember that the spring is holding the deflector down so when you are done installing, when you pick up on the deflector there is pressure holding it down. Don't put the pin clip on until you verify the spring force is correct because getting that spring clip off is the Hardesty pay off the job.

How spring goes on deflector shield


Please wear eye protection for your safety before performing this task since there is a spring that is under load! Take a pair of side cutters and cut the one way lock washer located on the font side of the shaft. (Facing Towards Front of Tractor). It should be black in color. Take a pair of pliers or vise-grips and pull and twist the rear part of the shaft that goes through the plastic deflector and work the plastic deflector up and down while you work the shaft out. As you're working the deflector shaft out, take caution as the spring will pop out of place. To install new deflector, place spring between plastic deflector and align it up to the hinge openings on the deck. Make sure the "L" tab is inserted in the open slot of the plastic deflector. Tilt the plastic deflector towards the back side and start to insert the deflector shaft from the back and wedge it in about close to half way in. Take the front part of the spring that has the rubber tab (to protect deck paint) and twist it counter clockwise so the rubber tab is pointing towards the left side of the deck. Push down on the plastic deflector assembly and continue to work the deflector shaft all the way through to the font hinge opening. Once the shaft has passed all the way through the hinge opening, take a 9mm or 10mm deep well quarter inch socket and tap the new one way lock washer that can be purchased at your local hardware or Home Depot location. Use a soft mallet hammer to do this so you won't damage the chrome finish on the socket. Good Luck and Let Me Know How it Turns Out.

How do I install the grass collector


Assuming that you have the correct grass catcher..... Install the discharge deflector at the deck discharge. This is the smaller piece that bends 90 degrees. It will slide into clips on the deck when you have the deck's plastic deflector raised up. Next, install the bagging assembly. It's pretty straightforward. Lastly, install the plastic chute (tube). Push it in the grass catcher (bagger) opening, and then pivot it over the deflector and down onto it to seat it. Connect the straps.

Best regards, --W/D--
