Question and Answers

Q:

Mower clutch cable assembly of Craftsman Lawn Tractor model number 917.289243 917289243?searchType=RepairHelp Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly assist you in locating the instructions to install the clutch cable on your mower. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information to assist you. 


Once you have the fuel tank out of the way,  remove the three screws securing the assembly to the dash. Once it is loose, you have to unscrew the knob and try to work it out of the dash. Removing the cable will allow you to twist the assembly to work the handle through the hole. Then install the new assembly the same way.

Let me know if this helps.

 
You can also visit searpartsdirect.com for parts, diagrams, and repair information.
 
 
If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

I think the belt has been twisted during the installation and is causing this problem. Have your husband take a look at my drawing below and then check the belt to make sure it matches up with the pattern.
