Question and Answers

Q:

fuel system 917.273780

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

The fuel delivery is performed by the fuel pump, which is vacuum fed. Removing the fuel line before the fuel filter or before the carb will have fuel flow when the key is turned on. If you are having issues with fuel flow, I would check the vacuum line because if it's cracked or disconnected, it will prohibit fuel flow. 

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

Q:

replace oil drain valve 917.273780

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the leaking drain valve on the tractor. I know how frustrating that is.

I see that the engine mentions the drain valve, but the Briggs & Stratton parts list has a drain plug. If you do have the drain valve, you will need to remove the fender skirt by pulling it straight up to release the tabs. This will give you better access to the valve. You can then use a 15/16" open wrench to get to the shoulder nut on the rear of the valve to loosen it. It will be standard thread. A deep socket will not be large enough to reach the shoulder nut, so an open wrench, crescent, or like kind will be needed.
