Q:

Connecting a spring 917.258900

A:

Thank you for choosing Searspartsdirect.com and being a valued member. I can certainly assist you in locating the instructions to install the deflector.


You have to hold the deflector and spring in position then slide the hinge pin in. 
First, you have to remove the push nut on the end of the hinge pin. Usually you have to use a pair of diagonal cutters to cut the nut off. After you have the nut off note the position of the spring. Then remove the hinge pin. While holding the spring on the new deflector, push the deflector onto the deck. Once in position slide the hinge pin in. I have posted a few images below showing how the spring should be positioned.image12475img-or.jpg (400×298)image12477img-or.jpg (400×298)image9944img-or.jpg (400×298)

Q:

no spark at spark plugs 917258900 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I added a link to your Owner's Manual where you can view and trace the circuit to the ignition module. On the ignition switch, terminal M with the black wire attached is ground. When the switch is turned off it grounds the circuit to kill the engine/spark. Check the circuit connected to terminal M for a short to ground. 

Use the Igition Switch chart in the wiring diagram to test the ignition switch. In order to get spark, terminal B, L and S must have 12 VDC when the ignition switch is set to the Start position. You will also see the seat switch in the circuit, if the seat switch is faulty, it will also ground out the module and prevent spark plugs from sparking. I recommend disconnecting and cleaning the connections to the seat switch and then reconnect the seat switch and then see if will fire up. Be sure to be sitting on the seat when starting the unitt. The blades must be disengaged and you must have the break pedal pressed to start the mower. I hope this is helpful.
