Q:

valves specifications 536270211 Craftsman Rear engine riding mower

A:

Thank you for choosing Searspartsdirect.com and being a valued member. I can certainly assist you.

When servicing the valves, all carbon should be
removed from the valve head and stem. If the valves
have been checked and are in a usable condition, the
valve face should be ground using a valve grinder to a
45 degree angle. If after grinding the valve face the
margin is less than 1/32 of an inch (.794 mm), the
valve should be replaced.

The valve springs should be checked for both ends
being parallel and the free length being at least 1.105"
(28.067 mm) for OHH and OVRM engines, 1.980"
(50.292 mm for OHM, OVM, OHSK, OVXL, and OHV
engines when the valves are removed.

Q:

How to remove the sector assembly and gear pinion on Craftsman model number 536270211 536270211

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry for the delay in answering the question. I am not sure if you've already removed the sector gear yet, but I will be happy to help.

The model referenced in the thread is similar but slightly different. The lock nuts that are referenced are key number 12 in that diagram. That would be the equivalent to the bolts (key number 10) on your diagram. You will need to remove bolt and nut (key 6) on your diagram to separate the pinion gear from the steering shaft. There are a couple of screws up top (also key 10) that may be needed to remove, but to just take off the sector gear, maybe not. There is also a cotter pin (key 16) that secures the pinion gear. However, separating the pinion gear from the steering shaft should allow the gear to pull out with the sector gear.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
