Actually the instructions for leveling the mower housing starts in page 23 and continues in page 24. And, yes I tried the instructions in page 23 and page 24 without any good results. The technician is coming to look and hopefully repair the issue.

The repair guy showed and found that one of the brackets that holds the "suspension arms" welding had failed. So, the only options were to buy a new "mower housing" for +$500 USD or have a welding shop weld the braket back to the "mower housing" for $30 USD. I took the $30 option and the issue was fixed. The welder said that the original job was not strong enought for the weight. At the same time I had the welder enforced the welding in the other bracket.

Q:

will a 486.248391snow blower fit a 917.276013 garden tractor 917273061 Craftsman Garden tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

The only snow thrower attachment that we can say with certainty that will work is model 486.24837. Looking at the two snow thrower models, the attachment brackets are very similar, so there is a possibility it will work. The only bracket slightly different is the side plate. There may be slight fabrication needed if the mount holes didn't line up perfectly. 

If you're looking at this snow thrower, it may be worth asking if you could perform a mock mounting to see if it lines up. 

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

Q:

How to determine engine pulley is the corret size? burning up belts.model 917.273061/serial 062399a006237 917273061 Craftsman Garden tractor

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Craftsman Garden Tractor, Model: 917.273061. From reviewing the details on your model, it appears that the only dimensions we have for this pulley are with the shipping dimensions included, so we wouldn’t be able to obtain the dimensions for just the pulley. From also looking at the pulley the part number for it is 143996 if this matches your pulley then it should be the correct size. 

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the tractor to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.
