Question and Answers

Q:

Cannot find the starter drive gear parts for engine model # 286707 0437.01. 286707043701 Briggs&stratton Engine

Q:

carbuertor 286707 or 917.255581

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear that the carburetor is flooding. I know how frustrating that is.

This sounds like the needle is sticking, which is causing the float to not regulate the fuel properly. I know how you said you’ve checked the float, but how was the needle/seat? Was it sticking at all? I suspect you will need to thoroughly clean the carburetor, or look at a replacement.

I would pull the carb from the engine. With a full can of carb cleaner, a wire brush, and a bread tie wire to poke through and clean the main jet; I would recommend a very thorough cleaning. Start by taking off the float bowl. Douse it very liberally with carb cleaner, and undo the pin for the float, and remove the needle and float. Clean them very thoroughly with the wire brush and carb cleaner. Pay close attention to the seat the needle sits in and clean it well. Once clean, start brushing the carb bowl and body and make sure you get all the varnish out. It may take three or four brushings with carb cleaner dousing in-between. From there, take the straw of the carb cleaner and shoot carb cleaner through any little hole or passageway of the carb. Shoot out the throat of the carb and poke the main jet with the bread tie wire. You have to make sure you get everything the first time, if you leave anything behind, it’s likely to reclog once you have it reassembled. 

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

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about the compatibility between snow thrower model 842.240531 and mower 917.255581. I will be happy to help you with this.

The snow thrower that is made for your tractor is model 486.24837. I have included the links for both snow throwers so that you can compare them.

When you compare the models look at parts such as the hanging brackets. These are parts that attach the snow thrower to the tractor and are the parts you would have to modify. You may find it easier to purchase the correct snow thrower attachment instead. I have included that link for you also.
