Question and Answers

Q:

Tractor wont start 917272463 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 the tractor. I know how frustrating that is.

It sounds like your charging system on the tractor may not be working, which is draining the battery down while in use. With a multi meter, turn it to read vdc. With the tractor jumped and running, place the positive and negative meter leads to the corresponding battery terminals. You should see a reading between 13-15vdc. If that is not occurring, you will likely have an issue with either the alternator (part 592830) or the regulator (part 845907). That is the most likely explanation for the symptom you are having.

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

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more than happy to assist you. I can understand any frustration you may have experienced with regards to your unit. Let’s see what we can do for you.

There are different situation on this issue that could be causing this. First could be the timing of the engine, if this isn’t correct then the push rods will go down as the piston comes up. The next thing could be maybe too thick of oil for the engine. Last could be that a valve is stuck, this could happen if engine has been sitting for a while.

Q:

Is this bagger 917249890 compatible with this tractor 917.272463? 917249890 Craftsman Grass catcher

A:

Thank you for being a Sears valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about compatible attachments for your Craftsman Tractor model 917.272463. I will be happy to help you with this. 

The Grass Catcher model 917249890 will not work with your tractor. The lower chute on the catcher will attach to the deck on your tractor, but the frame and support assembly are the wrong design to that attach the catcher to the back of the tractor. I have included the link below for the grass catcher made for your model.

Your tractor can tow all of our universal tow behind attachments. Universal attachments only need a hitch pin to attach it to the back of the tractor.  I have included the link below for you to view the tractor attachments we currently have available. Click on the attachment you are interested in and the description of the product will tell you how it attaches to the tractor.
