Natasha12 or to whom it may concern: 1) If you look on page 36 of the owners manual, directly under the words " Chassis and Enclosures" on the photo it gives a number! Location: Is upper left corner...about 1 in down... close to where the riders left hip would be. That number is **159**!!!!!! Now....when you take that number over to page 37 to match that number to the key numbers / parts numbers you will find that there is NO entry for the number that is on the photo on page 36!!!! It goes from: Key number 145=part number 156524 to Key number 206 = 170165 There is no listing or description there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know you can't see it because it IS NOT THERE!!! Which is my question!!!!! What is it and the part number that goes with it!!!! It looks like some sort of cup holder! 2) I do not need a video of how to replace the tank!!! I want to know what parts secure THE TANK TO THE MOWER!!!! I.E. Brackets, clamps, hoses screws etc....they are missing!!! I have the tank....but it is secured incorrectly....with zip strips! 3) I was on searspartsdirect .com that is how I got here. The person I was chat'n with could not help and sent me here!!! I have the diagrams etc. they show nothing about what I am looking for....SO I am here. I have already been to see a Sears technician....they were NO more help than the last 4 or 5 people I have spoken with!!! Thank You!

Q:

Mower stops running 917271662 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com, and for being a valued member. 

I am sorry to hear of the charging issue you’re having with the tractor. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

It sounds like your charging system is not working. This is comprised of an alternator on this unit.  It's under the flywheel on this model (most models are the same way). If you remove the engine shroud, the flywheel screen/fan, and then remove the flywheel you will see the alternator coil sitting there.

For convenience, I have linked the alternator for the engine below in case you need it.
