Thanks for the inquiry and for using
Anytime you need an engine related part like a carb rebuild kit, you need to identify the engine model number and input that into to open the engine related parts. In this case, the engine model I see from tractor 917272671 is 31C707-0230-E1. 
Based upon the engine model, I see the carburetor rebuild kit is part number 697241 and the carburetor in whole is 794572.
For convenience, I have included blue links below for either option. Just click on the blue links to be directed to SearsParts to view either option that works best for you.

917272671 Craftsman Lawn Tractor leaking at right axle


Thank you for your question.



I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I recommend lifting the rear of the tractor and removing the right wheel. The wiggle the axle shaft up and down and front to back. If the axle seems to have a lot of play the problem is likely the transaxle housing is worn enough that the axle is not held stationary. If this happens the axle move, more than it should and the seal will not seal against the axle. To correct this, the upper and lower halves of the transaxle need to be replaced. I also recommend installing new seals at the same time. Before sliding the seals on the shaft, I would clean the shafts with sand paper. If the shaft is dirty, it could cut the seal when it is slid on the shaft.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Does the belt get tight when you move the lever to engage? If not then either the clutching idler (the one the cable connects to) is not moving back far enough or the belt is stretched and will need to be replaced.

Let me know what you find.
