Question and Answers

Q:

craftsman rider model #917271030 no spark at spark plug 917271030

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. When the key is turned to the on position, you should have 12 volts on the red and black wires of the spark advance module. If you have, the 12 volts disconnect the white wire and check for spark. If you do not have spark double check the air gap between the flywheel magnet and the coil. If all of the above checks are ok, I suspect the spark advance module is defective. The new spark advance module will tack the place of the spark advance module and the coil. The part number is 12-707-01-S. The manufacturer changed the design of the SAM unit and coil. Now the two are one. I posted an image below that has the instructions for replacing the coil.

 

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

Q:

module that runs to ignition module that bolt to grass screen 917271030 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Based upon the Craftsman tractor model of 917.271030, I see that you are using a Kohler engine with a model of CV16S-43514. Based upon the engine model, I believe the module you are referring to is the Speed Advance Digital Module, part number 12-707-01-S.
For convenience, I have included two links below that you may click on to be directed to SearsParts. The first link is for the Speed Advance Module, and the second is for the Kohler engine schematic on SearsParts.

A:

The reason I ask is that we have a similar lawn mower with the CV16S engine and we only get about 1/2 power at full throttle. The engine also is much noisier at this throttle position than in the past. This has happened all of sudden. Last fall, it was all OK. We tried mowing this week and noticed it. Our lawn is hilly and it barely has enough power to make it up the hill with the mower deck running. If I advance it to the choke position it starts to stall. Appreciate any comments you may have.

After another run of the engine it is such that it will not start and has a backfire during cranking. This is leading me to think it is a failure with the camshaft. This craftsman has always backfired on shutdown from day 1 and I think that is the culprit causing the camshaft gear to become loose from the shaft. I am in process of taking the bottom of the engine off now to check the camshaft.

Q:

How to attach the anti-sway bar to the lawn mower chassis.

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your lawn tractor and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 917271030 and the instruction says insert anti sway Bar into transmission bracket and over to mower deck bracket and pull the deck into the bar attach washer and cotter pin. The sway rod attaches to a plate that runs side to side between the frame rails. It goes thru a hole in that bracket and attaches to the deck. Here is an image of the location of the sway rod. I trust this information will help you.
