Question and Answers

Q:

New Deck 917253572 Craftsman 42 inch rotary mower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the bent deck on the new mower. I know how frustrating issues like this are to have happen.

You didn't specifically mention what was damaged besides the bent deck. Typically when you hit something, it can damage or bend the mandrel shaft, or break the mandrel from the deck. You will need to identify the extent of the damage and select the correct parts that are needed. You mention this is a new mower, but my records show this mower deck model dating back to 1980. The complete deck for this unit has been discontinued due to the age of it.

To help you out, I have linked below the parts list on the mower deck for this model of tractor. Once you identify what's needed, you can order them from Sears Parts.

Thank you for your question.

I have looked up the model numbers you have submitted. I was able to find the parts break down that shows how the belt should be routed. I have posted the image below. On this model, I think the belt guides are bolted on. First, remove the guides then route the belt. After the belt is installed, engage the mower deck with the engine off to check the clearances. If the belt looks fine, go ahead an install the belt guides.

I have looked for the original manuals for the two but they are no longer available.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
