Serial number craftsman lawn mower model number 247.370341

If you have a Briggs and Stratton engine and there is no clutch then start your machine and warm it up ( a couple of mins) Turn machine on it\'s side with the air filter UP. Loosen the plug on the bottom of engine and turn mower back upright over an oil tray or suitable container to catch the oil. When done draining reinstall plug and add oil 30W. If you do have a clutch under the deck then warm your engine ,shut down and remove the oil dipstick. Turn mower on side over a tray and your oil will come out of fill tube

Smoke coming from engine after oil change

Did you tilt the mower on its side when changing the oil? Be sure the oil is at proper level. Be sure the air filter is not saturated with oil or fuel. If it is replace it. Start and run mower outside. The smoke should clear up after a few minutes of run time

How to change oil In a craftsman lawn mower, that has a honda engine. Misplaced my manual. Have decided to change my own oil rather than have it serviced every year I was doing a number of lawns so I had...

Look for a drain plug under the deck in the bottom of the engine (under the deck) known as the crankcase housing. Drain plugs come in different forms, but you will know it when you see it. IF there is no plug on the engine bottom, then check for a small plug on the side of the engine (above the deck) with a square head. That would be removed and the mower tilted that way to drain the oil. If no plug on the side of the engine then the oil will have to be drained out the oil filler tube. Remove the dipstick and tilt the mower that way to drain the oil.

I changed the blade, and now it won't start!

Did you replace the blade with a heavier blade, or an identical one? If the pull cord won't pull, it's usually either the blade or the blade shaft causing the problem. Try oiling the shaft and making sure nothing is obstructing the blade from turning.

If you have a pair of heavy gloves, try turning the blade by hand and see if it moves. Squirt some oil onto the shaft where it meets the mower and try turning it again.

Cant start the mower, already replaced spark plug, airfilter is clean. When starting a small black cloud comes out so think it has to do with a oil filter, lost manual so cannot check, need to find a copy...

Black smoke is unburnt fuel. Whether it is poor spark, bad gas, etc. Also make sure your oil level is not over full as this can cause it to blow by the rings and foul the gas.

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.

Your mower should definitely have an air filter whether it is paper or foam, and you should drain the oil from the bottom, not turning it over. turning it over can get oil in places where it shouldn't be and make it smoke or not run at all. It may need carburetor cleaning and spark plug cleaning or replacement, or the flywheel key may be sheared if it runs rough

Intek 6.5 HP in a Craftsman 21'' mulcher/bagger --loss of power--

No - 6.5HP is enough to cut 3" at a fast walking pace. I would suspect a blown head gasket.
