Q:

mower tries to stall when put in reverse 917275700

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the tractor stalling in reverse. I know how frustrating that is.

If you are not in the ROS position on the ignition switch with the blades engaged, the safety mechanism will kill the engine. That would be the most likely reason why it would stall when in reverse. You don't mention anything about the blades being engaged or not, so I don't have a lot of information to go by. If you are in the ROS position and the engine still dies, there could be shorted contacts within the switch.

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

Q:

Part number 146154 for lawn tractor 917.275700 doesn't match 917.275700

A:

Connect the one white wire to the terminal and the two black wires are used for chassis ground. The starter solenoid must have a ground. Use the black wires to ground the base of the solenoid if you do not have two lower terminals. Do not connect white to black together on the singe spade. Connect the whitewire to the single spade or post and connect both black wires to the base/mounting bolts securing the solenoid for chassis ground.

Now, if it does have two terminals at the base, connect the one white wire to one and the two black wires to the other. The large two reds will connect to the top two. One red wire connects to battery and the red wire connects the starter. I hope this helpful.
