Mowing 917270632 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com, and for being a valued member. 

I am sorry to hear of the uneven cut you are experiencing. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

Believe it or not, tire pressure makes a big difference on deck levelness and cut. Make sure you check the tire pressure and fill to the recommended spec on the side of the tires. If tire pressure is not an issue, I would make sure the blades are in good shape and are not bent or damaged or loose. If they look fine, you will want to look into leveling the mower deck. The manual has a good section on leveling the mower deck on page 22. I have linked a manual for a similar model below for reference.

Q:

Craftsman Tractormodel #917270632 won't start 917270632 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be happy to help you. Upon researching model 917270632 I found it has a solenoid for the starter. The solenoid could be out and not letting enough volts go to the starter. If the solenoid is good the starter could have burned out. Also check spark plug to make sure not corroded.

If you have any further questions please re-post question. Thank you for choosing Sears. Have a great day.

Q:

42 inch tractor 917270632 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

To cause the deck belt to break too often is usually caused by a bad bearing in an idler pulley or a mandrel. If the bearing seizes the belt will overheat and break.
Check the bearings in the idler pulleys and the mandrels. Turn the pulleys slowly by hand and feel for any rough spots. If you have rough places as you rotate the pulley or any side to side play, replace the bearing.
Check the pulleys including the engine pulley for grooves or rough places on the insides where the belt runs. If you have any pulleys with grooves or rough places, replace the pulleys.
Hope this helps you identify the issue, but I would start with checking the mandrel and idler pulley bearings.
