Question and Answers

Q:

Is model 917273060 the same as 917273061 917273060 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
For the most part, the two models will be pretty much the same. However, the ending digit refers to a revision of the original model. So a model ending in 0 is the first edition, a model ending in 1 is a revision to the original ending in 0, 2 would be a revision to 1, and so on.
There will be subtle differences in parts between revisions, as the manufacturer may decide to use different parts in the later model revisions if the originals weren't satisfactory. It's always best to use your precise model located underneath the seat for part ordering to ensure you are receiving the correct part.

A:

This is most often caused by a carburetor problem. You will need to pick up a can of spray carb/choke cleaner to clean the carburetor with. Remove the carburetor from the engine and go through it and clean it thoroughly. This can be a little bit of a tricky job on this engine so you may want to have a technician come take care of this for you. If so you may arrange for service at this website: Sears Home Services

Q:

My hydrostatic transaxle just stopped working. It makes a bad whining noise when I engage forwards or backwards. What is wrong with it??

A:

You should first try purging any air out of the transaxle. I am sending you an image of instructions for purging the transaxle.

You should check the oil level in the transaxle. On the right side of the transaxle body near the top remove the pipe plug. The oil level should be at the bottom of the hole the plug was in. The transaxle uses 20W40 engine oil.

Replacing the hydrostatic transaxle with a standard would take a lot of parts and work. The tractor would probably not be worth the expense of changing the transaxle over to a standard.
