Question and Answers

Q:

My lawn tractor auto trans won't move forward or reverse 917.272960

Q:

Switch interlock push-in 917.272960

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Based upon the wiring diagram on page 35 of the owner's manual, the other safety switch is the clutch/brake switch and will be located by the clutch/brake linkage. When you depress the clutch/brake, it actuates the push button on the switch. 

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

The diagram in the owners manual makes it appear that the switch is under the metal housing that the seat sits on. I've looked everywhere from under the mower. I've followed all the linkages attached to the brake/clutch pedal and any associated with the parking brake lock which is connected to the previously mentioned linkage. The exact physical location of the interlock push-in switch is what I'm after. I need this info not based on a diagram which I have, but from someone who has actually seen the physical switch in place on an actual mower if possible. Thanks in advance for your help.

Q:

hwat is the name of the device that charges the battery on my tractor Model # 917272960 917272960 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

The charging system comprises of two parts, the regulator/rectifier and the stator. The regulator is part number 41-403-10-S, and the stator is 237878-S.

There will most likely be 3 wires on the regulator. 2 will match (usually yellow or black) and one will be red (usually). The 2 wires that match will go up under the flywheel and will deliver AC voltage to the regulator. At full throttle, those 2 matching wires should have between 28 and 35 volts AC. If that voltage is present then the single wire (red) should have about 13 volts DC on it. If there is AC voltage but no (or low) DC voltage then the regulator is bad. If the AC voltage is not there or it's low then the stator is bad.
