Question and Answers

Q:

26 hp wont turn over 917.276922

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

The fuse will be between the starter solenoid and the ignition switch. If you trace the wire from the solenoid towards the ignition switch, it will be between them. Usually behind the dash. 

If the fuse is good, you have a wiring or switch problem. The easiest way to pin point the problem is with a volt meter. If you do not have a meter, you can purchase one relatively cheap.

Turn the meter to check dc volts, and then hold the black lead to the black negative battery terminal for all of the voltage checks. Place the red lead on the positive terminal of the battery. The reading should be 12 volts. If you have a 12 volt reading, move the red lead to the B terminal of the ignition switch or the red wire. Your reading should be 12 volts. If you have 12 volts, have someone sit on the tractor and hold the brake/clutch pedal while turning the key for the rest of the checks. While they have the key turned to the start position, move the red lead to the white wire on the clutch/brake safety switch. The reading should always be 12 volts. Then move to the attachment PTO safety switch. If you lose the 12 volts, the problem is between the last check you had the voltage and where you lost the voltage. If you have 12 volts all the way to the white wire on the solenoid, the solenoid or the starter is defective.

To determine starter or solenoid, short the two large posts on the solenoid together with a screwdriver. There should be a spark it is normal. Once shorted the starter should run. If the key is turned to Start, the tractor should fire up.

This very likely could be: a defective battery, the fuse, a shorted safety switch, or a wire that’s shorting or grounding out.

Thank You! I located the fuse and it was blown. I replaced it and it blew again after 4 or 5 trys to start. The motor is not turning over completely, it sound like it is hitting against something, not a click like a low battery. Originally when the fuse first blew, I was restarting the motor. It turned over once, then on the second turn of the key I heard a clunk sort of sound and then got nothing. I don't think I gave enough time between the first and second turn...could the starter be jammed? It seems that something is seized. Thank you again.

Q:

Replacing oil pan drain plug 917276922 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Instead of using a ratchet and socket, you could use an adjustable wrench. That would provide you some extra clearance. Outside of that, there are some specialized drain plug removal tools out there, but I think you should be able to get to it with a wrench. 

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