Q:

Replace transaxle 917273637 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Unfortunately, we do not have a cross-reference of parts to any newer designed transaxles. With the newer transaxles, they are made by other brands such as Tuff Torq and the designs are different. 

I would take the part numbers and try to Google search them to see if there are any in circulation on other sites like Ebay or Amazon. If that doesn't help, you could try to match them up at a bearing specialty shop or have them machined locally. That might be the only option.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

Transaxle locked up 917273637 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more than happy to assist you. I can understand any frustration you may have experienced with regards to your unit. Let’s see what we can do for you.

There are so many parts in the transaxle that could be the culprit it would be hard to tell you what would need replaced. It would have to be opened to see exactly what was going on inside there. Before that happens check all the linkages from the shifter to the transaxle, and make sure none of the pulleys have locked up. 

Hope this information has helped you. If you are not comfortable doing this repair you can click here to schedule a technician or call toll free 1-800-469-4663. Again, thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com.

A:

I have removed the transaxle from underneath the mower. The linkages and pulleys are working fine; however, the pulley on top of the transaxle will not move in any gear. How do I split open the transaxle housing to look at the gears etc.? The sealant is very tough and I cannot get a start with a chisel or screw driver.

A:

check the tie rod from the left spindle to the right spindle. that is the weakest link in the steering system on your tractor. when you hit something with the tractors front wheels that part is usually the part that will bend first. just make sure that tie rod is strait and not bowed any. if it is bowed that will give you a toe out issue. or the spindle could be bent on either side but the tie rod usually bends first. they can be straitened back out not needing to buy a new one most of the time.

A:

TC is correct with his assessment. There are some adjustable drag links that can be bought but most likely, if this wasn't an issue to start with on the mower then something has bent and is now causing the problem.
