Question and Answers

Q:

Transaxle fluid 917252532

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
They Hydro Gear transaxle, 310-0650, will use 20W50 of oil. This transaxle will hold about 80 ounces of fluid from empty. The fluid level when full should measure between 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" below the top of the housing. 
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Thanks for taking time to help me. Sears told me 80w90 gear oil, but I was told here to use 20w50. So I drained it and filled it with 20w50 Valvoline synthetic oil. Now it pulls but not as well as it did before and it sounds terrible ( sounded ok before ). The decal on the transaxle says to follow the purge proceedure in the service manual when serviced. Do not have service manual and can't find one. Can you tell me the purge proceedure? Tractor model # 917252532 Transaxle model# 319-0650 Thanks for your help.

Q:

Does the mower deck that came with this mower have front wheels you can purchase also? They say it makes for leaver cuts and wont gouge. Thanks 917252532 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about front wheels for the mowing deck on your Craftsman Tractor. I will be happy to help you with this.

Although the manufacturer did not list the front gauge wheels on your model, I located several other tractors that use the same mowing deck as your tractor. I have located the front gauge wheel kit that is guaranteed to fit that deck. The kit will come with the hardware to attach the wheels.  I have included the link for you to order the kit.

I hope this answers your question. If you need further assistance, please resubmit your question with additional details. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Q:

Do the spring clips slide in the axle or do you have to split pinion gear and lock them in?

A:

The level of oil in the hydro gear transaxle measuring from the top should be 1 1/4” – 1 1/2”. It requires 80 ounces of 20w50 for summer or winter use.

I will need more details and key numbers of where these "spring clips" are located. I do not see a pinion gear, or you speaking of the center section (key#26)? If you are speaking of the retainer ring (key#28) you will need to separate the upper and lower housing in order to remove or install the retainer ring. It will require a special retainer ring removal/installer tool in order to spread the retainer apart and slide over the shaft.

This type of repair should be left for the professional. I recommend taking the tractor in for repair rather that removing and separating the transaxle and repairing it yourself.
