SOURCE: Rear skirt on lawn mower flips under when backing up

Sounds like the skirt is too long for the cutting height you are using, either raise the cutting height or shorten the skirt. Remember it's a safety guard for trash kicked up when mowing!

SOURCE: Craftsman 20HP , can't stop freewheeling,

Sounds like your problem is the key in your rear wheel is missing or sheared, you have to remove the wheel @ tire assembly ,pull rubber cap off then clip to remove if one of the keys is sheared or gone it will go into gear and the brake will work ,but they will only stop the shaft without the key it will not move or brake becuase its not attached if you know what I mean.

SOURCE: belt drive replacement

First you have to remove the top cover over the belt. If it's still on, work it off the pully. Then you have to remove the blade, blade adapter and cover underneath. Put the new belt on the pulley underneath and push it out the slot to the pulley on top and put everthing back together. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: craftsman 42 inch deck won't run

Check proper belt routing. These models are a little tricky. Also check tensioner spring.

Can i replace a 17.5 hp mower engine with a 18 hp engine?


You will need to shop carefully. That is not too much of a power jump to worry about ruining axles, gears and the like. BUT, do be mindful that you have to shop an engine to match two very important criteria:

Bolt patterns and spacing: This is how the engine will attach to the mower's deck/chasis.

Output shaft length, diameter, taper and if it's keyed or non-keyed.

If looking to just replace a tired old iron horse, similar make and model to the original with slight power upgrade cannot be helped - but the bolts and shafts will be pretty much spot on.

I need to replace a belt on a craftsman with a 42" deck.What size belt should I get.What length.


Craftsman is made by Murray Corp. who also makes Murry, YardMan, Lowes, Penncraft, and on and on. Go to your local Wal-Mart, Lawn and Garden Dept. and look for the belt that fits the Murray, YardMan, Lowes, Toro, 42" Deck 14-18 HP. Or take your old belt with you, and stretch them both end to end holding the end loops with each hand. Or you could go to Sears and just tell the parts department what your mower is and they can get you a Craftsman belt. It will be the same one you get at Lowe's, Wal-Mart, ect, probably just cost a little more. Sears doesn't make mowers, they just have their colors and names put on by the manufactorer. And Murray of Ohio is the maker of these.

Blades do not spin fast enough to cut grass


If you got the right oem belt,ta\han you can look at the end where the cable attachs to spring and you should see a double nut adjustment loosen nuts and adjust to put more tension on the belt when you put lever into gear for blades to turn then retighten them .
