Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about the deck shell for your Craftsman Tractor. I will be happy to help you with this. Your question was if the part 140081 would work as a replacement for your Tractor model 917254860. To determine if the parts would be interchangable, I pulled up a model that uses the 140081 deck weldment and compared parts on the two decks. While several of the parts that attach to the decks are the same, such as the mandrels, mulch cover and sway bar are the same, there are also several parts that are different. Examples are the rear suspension arm, the belt, the extension return spring and the clutch rod.


I have included the links for the parts diagram for your model tractor's deck and the deck of one of the models I found that uses the 140081 deck for you to compare.

To be sure the parts will fit on your deck correctly, I recommend using the replacement deck for your model. I have included that link for you.

Removing all of the parts from the old deck to put in on the new one is a time consuming project. It might be easier for you to replace the complete deck assembly. It comes with all the parts, including the belt already on it. I have included that link for you also.

While you are working on your tractor, I recommend completing your spring tune-up of the engine. I have included the links for the filters and spark plug.
