Question and Answers

Q:

Transaxle oil leak 917.251511

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more than happy to assist you. I can understand any frustration you may have experienced with regards to your unit. Let’s see what we can do for you.

I'm showing the only way to change out that oil seal would be to take about the transaxle. No special way, just remove the bolts holding the transaxle case together. Make sure when removing the bolts you do a little at a time on each bolt because you don’t want to put uneven pressure on that case.

I’m also showing that it takes 20w50 and will hold approximately 2.5 quarts or 80 ounces of oil but the level should be verified by measuring down from the top of the housing where the fill plug goes in.

Hope this information has helped you. If you are not comfortable doing this repair you can click here to schedule a technician or call toll free 1-800-469-4663. Again, thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com.

Q:

46 inch bagger chute size and fit 247240193 Craftsman Two bin bagger

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

That bagger will not fit the tractor, and the lower chute would be incompatible. The biggest issue is the bagger (247) and the tractor (917) are made by different manufacturers. You would need to find a brand specific (917) bagger that is compatible with the 917 tractors. 

Based upon our records, the original bagger for your tractor was model 917.24990, which has since been discontinued. The bagger currently available that should be a direct fit is part number 24903, or model 917.24903. I have linked it below for convenience.

Q:

fit question 917.251511

A:

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

The snow thrower attachment I see as being model specific to your tractor is model 486.24837, or part number 24837. There would also be a mounting kit part number of 24831 needed.

The snow thrower in question may work, but there could be some fabrication involved with the mounts and possibly could need mounting holes punched. If you are looking at purchasing this second hand, I would strongly urge you to ensure all the parts are there for it, as most of the integral parts have since been discontinued due to the age of the unit. 

Sears recommend purchasing the OEM snow thrower attachment meant for the model of tractor you have to ensure compatibility and efficiency.

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