Question and Answers

Q:

Oil type and capacity for rear end of a Craftsman Lawn Tractor Model# 917256553 SN. 051496D 001565 917256553 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Based upon Craftsman tractor model 917.256553, I see the transaxle is model 319-0650. Based upon that transaxle, you will use 80 ounces from empty of 20W50 motor oil. If you are topping it off, you can measure from the top vent plug 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" from the top for the proper amount of fluid.

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

Q:

reassembly of gear box 917256553 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Look on the transmission and see if there are any numbers or a brand name on it. Most of these units were Hydro-Gear unit, but some of them were a different brand. You can go to Partsdirect.com and look at the parts images for the transmission, but that may not be clear enough to where it will make a lot of sense. If it's a Hydro-Gear unit, they may have a service manual available at their website that will be of use to you for this.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
