Q:

attaching dethatching blade 917.273150

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about attaching a dethatching blade to your Craftsman tractor model 917.273150. I am so sorry you were informed blade item 07133057000P will work with your tractor. This blade is made for use with walk behind mowers. I have included the link below for you to read the description of the blade. 

Walk behind mowers use blade adapters with attaching the blade. This part breaks when the blade hits something hard to protect the gearbox. Tractors use mandrels for this purpose. The two are not compatible. Tractors use a dethatcher attachment. I have included the link below for you to view a dethatcher that will work with your tractor. 

I hope this answers your question. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Q:

my tractor will not start

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. If you have removed the fuel line from the carburetor and there is no fuel coming out the hose, the problem could be a plugged vent in the fuel cap, the tank outlet is plugged, or the fuel line is plugged. To diagnose where the problem is, leave the fuel line off the carburetor and place the end of the hose in a gas can. The remove the gas cap and check for fuel flow. If you have fuel now the problem is a plugged vent in the gas cap. If you do not have any fuel, I recommend looking into the tank. You should be able to see the tank outlet. I have seen the outlet be plugged with debris. If the outlet is plugged the tank needs to drained and removed. Then try to turn the tank upside down and shake out the debris. If the tank outlet is fine, I recommend removing the fuel line before the filter and check for fuel flow. If gas comes out, I suspect the problem is in the filter. If you installed a paper style filter, it may not allow the fuel to come through. Those filters are designed for engines with a fuel pump. I recommend using the correct filter for your tractor.

 

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

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your lawn tractor. The part that is broken is the drag link and is part number 175121. The new drag link will come with the ball ends connected to it. To replace the drag link it is easiest to remove the mowing deck from the tractor. I have provided you with the instructions for removing the deck. Once the deck is out of the way, you will see the other end of the drag link. Just remove the nuts securing the drag link then install the new drag link. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

Thanks AnneJ. If I have to replace the entire drag link I will do so. But, I have 2 questions: 1.) Is it possible to fix the issue by re-attaching the rubber gasket -thereby reconnecting the ball ends? 2.) Am I correct in thinking it is just this rubber gasket that attaches the ball end to the bolt head? Thanks very much. Steve

If you can reconnect the rubber gasket, which yes this is was attaches the ball end to the bolt head, then yes it will fix the problem. If you can not then you will need to replace the whole drag link.
