Q:

Carb not getting gas.. i suspect the diaphragm in the fuel "pump" 917271825 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with fuel delivery on the Briggs engine. I know how frustrating that is.

You've done all the preliminary checks, and I would suspect the issue will either be with the fuel pump or the fuel solenoid. You can remove the fuel solenoid and ground the body of it to a metal surface and put a jumper wire the positive battery terminal to see if it retracts properly. Be careful because it can pinch. If the fuel solenoid works, it will likely be the fuel pump and will need to be rebuilt. The part number for the rebuild kit is 693502. 

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

Q:

how do you remove rear fenders to replace fuel tank on 119.5 hp 42" riding mower 917272912 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

To replace the fuel tank you will have to remove the rear fender assembly. I have provided you with an image below that I have added arrows. The arrows are showing the location of the six bolts that have to be removed to lift the fender. Once the bolts are removed, unscrew the shifter handle. The seat and bracket should be able to stay connected to the fender assembly. Once you have all the bolts removed you need to unplug the seat switch harness then you should be able to lift the fender assembly off the tractor. You will be looking down at the fuel tank once the fender is out of the way. There is a metal bracket that goes across the fuel tank and it will need to come off. After that, the tank is just sitting there. The line connects up on the right side of the tank. Take the line loose and the tank will be free of the machine at that point. 

Note: Remember to work in a well ventilated area and use caution when working around fuel. To install the next one just reverse the process and you should be in good shape.

Q:

When I try to start my tractor all I get is a grinding noise. The fan propeller does not turn or engage 917271825 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

Hello, glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the tractor.
 
Glad to help out.  I’m looking at your Craftsman Tractor model number 917271825.

The fan blade not turning or engaging then the first thing to look at is the belt.   However, being that you hear the grinding noise, sounds like you may have shot a bearing in it.  It is freezing and needs to be replaced.   

On the picture below shows a good break down.   Key number 9 is the input shaft, key 14 is the bearing.  By what you are describing of your troubles, then would have to assume it be those two items.
