Q:

carburetor 917287010

A:

that is an electric fuel shut off valve. there is a small plunger that when the key is turned on will open up letting fuel through the carb for the engine to start and when the key is turned off the plunger will close off the fuel supply from coming out of the bowl and into the carb throat. it was designed for the after fire issue when the engine shut off the carb would still let fuel be sucked up into the intake and would sometimes backfire when shutting down this was suppose to stop that from happening. if the gas it coming out of the cylinder when you remove the spark plug the fuel is to high in the carb bowl from the float not shutting off the seat and needle valve.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when figuring out the problems of the riding mower.

Using your model number 917.287010, I pulled up your engine model number off the Briggs and Stratton engine 31a607-0741-e1.   The item below the carburetor is the fuel pump.   This pump would cause what is happening to your mower.   I go by the model number.  On your model they put two different style carburetors.  The  carburetor is either a Nikki or a Walbro.

I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link below to be taken to the page.

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 917272265 and check the belt tension to make sure it's tight. If it's not, check the clutching idler bracket (has 2 small idlers on it) to make sure it's able to move to make the belt tight. If it's not you will need to oil the shaft it pivots on. This is usually something that makes the tractor slowdown in both directions, but reverse it what gets noticed sooner (most of the time). 


If the belt tension is good then check the linkage for the shifter where it connects at the transmission. That linkage has a bend it, you can straighten that linkage just a little bit and get more reverse speed. Make sure to not over-do that though as it can cause other problems. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. I trust this information will help you.
