i have the exact same problem.. There is a belt stop by the electric clutch and the belt cannot get around it to be installed. THIS is the MOTION drive belt I am talking about, not the MOWER drive belt. I have tried everything and cannot get that belt on The instructions in the manual are not helpful.

Q:

i replaced the drive belt on my lawn tractor, now the gears are reversed 3 reverse 1 forward any ideas 917.273050

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

This type of issue is most often caused by misrouting the belt during installation. I would recommend reviewing the belt routing diagram on page 25 of the owner's manual and check the routing of the belt. 

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

Q:

its been sitting for months have started to work on it have done alot to it but now the tractor mower wont start battiery is good what other issues could it be 917273050 Craftsman Garden tractor

A:

Check the fuel line from the tank to make sure it is not plugged up or cracked. If the line is good, remove the line at the carburetor and see if fuel comes from the hose when you try to start. If it does then there is likely a problem with the carburetor and/or the fuel solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor.

Let me know what you find.
