Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

Trying to find a maintenance manual (exploded view of transmission) for a craftman rear tine tiller (may have been made in Canada), with 5hp Brigs & statton (1985 from motor serial). The tiller serial is mostly rubbed off. The unique thing about the tiller is that the handle can be adjusted so that it is a left or right offset as well as the center position.

    Thanks. thought it started 217. Found something close (917.299680) but no manual. The pictures from the sears part search were grainy but better than nothing.

    If anyone has the manual for 917.299680 or a well scanned exploded view, I would love to have them.

    Thanks for the help.

I have craftsmen 5HP rear tine tiller,while tilling picked up a rock which jammed the tines and stalled the motor. when i restarted it had loud grinding noise and then locked up stopping me from being able...


If the tiller tines where jammed, the tranny and motor where still trying to turn and there could be a couple different parts broken. The tranny main shaft make have busted, the tranny gears could have jammed. If the motor does start, than that is a good sign. If not than the connecting rod or crank may have snapped.

I am guessing you will probably have to dismantle the transmission and see if there are any broken gears or shaft.

Can't find filler plug on transmission


Jim the older tillers did not have a place to put grease in. You have to break the case apart then it takes 00 grease. These are sealed units and don't need additional grease. Check with Sears.com parts lookup for a new manual. I am on my second Craftsman r/t tiller now rebuilt the transmission on the first and wore it completly out then bought a new about 8 years ago. About to rebuild the transmission on it.
