Q:

Non start issue on lawn tractor PYT9000 - 917289730 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you’re having with the mandrels. I know how frustrating that is.

The wiring diagram for the tractor is listed as a schematic on Sears Parts under the model number. It will be the last schematic on the page. You don’t mention if the tractor turns over or if it is dead, so I am not entirely sure which direction to go.  Here are a few steps you can take if it won’t turn over.

First, make sure the engagement lever is down or the PTO button is pushed in and the brake pedal is fully depressed or the tractor will not attempt to turn over. If you have already done this, I recommend checking the fuse. The fuse is located 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 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.

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

Q:

Mower dies after about 10 minutes mowing 917289730 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Sorry to hear of the intermittent engine when it gets to operating temperature, I know how frustrating that is to have occur.
Next time the engine starts to die, loosen the fuel cap for ten seconds. If the engine smoothes out, I recommend replacing the fuel cap. The fuel cap has a vent that should allow air to replace the used fuel. If the vent is plugged, fuel will eventually stop flowing from the tank (vapor-lock).
If that doesn't make any difference, I would recommend checking for spark next time it dies out on you. Remove the plug and attach it back to the boot. Then ground the base of the plug to something metal on the engine like the cylinder. Have a helper attempt to start the engine while you are grounding the plug and see if spark emanates from it. If not, I suspect your ignition module is on its way out. It's not uncommon for ignition modules to lose spark when they are at operating temperature. They will usually fire back up once the engine has had time to cool. 
If by chance you determine you need the ignition coil for this Briggs engine, I have provided a blue link below that you may click on to be directed to the SearsParts site to view and purchase it when needed.
