SOURCE: mounting snow blade to lawn tractor

It attaches the the front of the tractor. Similar to a plow to a truck. If you don't have the brackets, you will need those, or make your own. You can see a picture of the brackets if you go to sears.com. Click on the PartsDirect link at the top, and enter the blade model number.

My guess, without seeing the engine would be a seal or gasket is bad. Use Gunk brand degreaser to clean the engine. Start it up after that with the engine cover off and watch for leaks.

Lawn tractor is smoking


Make sure that it is at least 18 years old. Then look at the valve cover gaskets. The gaskets frequently leak and the oil drips onto the exhaust pipe. They will be near the spark plugs, have two small bolts holding them on.

I have a Craftsman Tractor 42" cut. It's burning oil and smokes when I start the blades.


perform a cylinder leak down test, any readings over 30 percent loss means the engine may have internal problems, Many things it could be. Blown head gasket that is blown between the cylinder and oil gallery. Overfilled with oil or gas in the oil from a faulty carburetor. Leaking valve stem seals. Worn piston rings. Hope this steers you in the right direction. Good luck

I have a Sears Craftsman mower with Tecumseh, major oil leak


On many Tecumseh engines, there is a crankcase breather located under the flywheel. It has a cork gasket to seal the top plate of the breather. Either the rubber breather housing is cracked, or the cork gasket needs replaced.
