Question and Answers

Q:

I have A craftman lawn mower I can't get start 917257620 Craftsman Lawn, tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. 
Sorry to hear of the issue your having with the tractor. I was unable to make sense of your details. To determine if you have a fuel related problem you can remove the air filter and carefully pour a teaspoon of fuel into the throat of the carburetor. Once the gas can is set aside, try to start the engine. If the engine starts or acts like it wants to the problem is fuel related. First, check the fuel supply to the carburetor by removing the fuel line. If you have a good flow of fuel, the problem is in the carburetor. You can try cleaning it first or replace it.
Hope this helps and let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

A:

Thank you for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. I have pulled up the parts for the Foote/Dana transaxle, model 4360-47, and the brake pad/puck is still being offered for this unit on SearsPartsDirect.com. 

For convenience, I have included a blue link below that you may click on to be directed to the PartsDirect page to view and purchase the pad. I have included a secondary brake pad below for a substitution pad for the original if needed. Hopefully these will help.

Q:

model number 917.257620 part number 131870 key number 51 i need to know where this spring goes on a mower deck?

A:

I understand that you found the spring that goes on the mower deck and you need to know where and how? I found a question in Manage My Life under the Answers button that was similar to the one you asked. I think this information is going to be a lot of help while your waiting on an expert answer. I attached the link below, Good Luck!!!!

A:

The spring in question does not go on the deck itself. It connects up to the handle you engage the deck with (PTO handle) then stretches from the handle to a sort of down and back direction where there should be a hole. The hole should be obvious to have had something (a spring) in it due to it being scratched up around it or the paint worn off. If you cannot find the hole, anything you can connect the spring to will work. The tension may be of some concern so try it in a few places to find a spot where it has about the right amount.

All that spring does is aid in bringing the handle down. Years back when they would break a lot of people would just leave it broke. I prefer to have it there but it certainly won't make or break the operation of the mower.

We do not have a photo of this spring connected up on file or I would include one with this answer. They don't make the PTO system like that anymore so it may be a long time before I see one again to take a picture.
