Q:

Interchangeable lawn tractor seats 917.272061

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when you need parts for the lawn tractor.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Craftsman Tractor model number 917.272061.

I am sorry because in my department it doesn't give me the dimensions of the seats.   I have no way of knowing if the seats would be interchangeable by looking at them.   If you are at the store and copy a model number down then look at your model at parts direct dot com and see if they have the same bolt hole match up.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs. "Please resubmit" if there are any further questions or statements.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.

A:

The compression ratio for your engine is 8.5:1

If you take a compression reading with a standard type compression tester it will more than likely read somewhere in the 75-100lb range. Whatever it reads, it will not be correct. The Kohler engines have a crankcase pressure relief build in to them, making a compression test unreliable. Kohler recommends using a leak down tester to check for issues where you would use a compression test.

If you suspect a stuck valve, all you really need to do is take the rocker arm cover off and with the spark plug out. Spin the flywheel by hand and visually inspect the valves as they move in and out.
