Q:

Model #917.287.220 mowing tractor 917.287.220

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Craftsman Tractor, Model: 917.287220. From reviewing the details on your model, I would think that the worst thing that could have happened is that a push rod becomes slightly bent and maybe it's getting worse. It's also possible that perhaps the head gasket has blown. Normally in too much oil situation there is just smoke and/or no starting. 

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the tractor to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Q:

Auger Drive Belt. 917287220 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about the auger belt for your Craftsman snow blower attachment. I am so sorry you are having difficulty finding this part. I will be happy to help you with this. 

Craftsman model numbers do not start with 436. We have Craftsman snow attachments that start with 486. If you change the three to an eight, the model should come right up. We do not keep information on the length of the belt. This is because we only recommend using the manufacturer’s original part. The belts made for our Craftsman products are made with Kevlar, which makes them much stronger than a generic belt. Using the wrong belt on your snow blower attachment may damage it.

I have located the auger belt and have included the link below for you to view and order the part.

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

I was on the phone with your department speaking with a help person. He also said to change the 3 to an 8 but that is not the number on the snow auger. I went back into the garage and double checked the number and I also had my wife check the number. The number is definitely a 3 not an 8. (436-248381) . I also need the manual for this auger to make sure the belt is on right. The belt keeps falling off. I see no adjustment
