Question and Answers

Q:

Lawn Tractor Clutch Anti-Rotation Bracket Installation 917289740

Q:

My tractor slows down when I start cutting especially on inclines. 917.289740

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. I know how frustrating that is.

Based upon the specification sheet for this tractor, the spark plug should be gapped to .040". I would ensure proper gapping. 

If that doesn't solve the issue, it could be fuel related. It sounds like there may be an internal blockage within the carburetor that is causing it to starve for fuel under load. You can pull the carburetor from the engine and perform a thorough cleaning. That will usuallly solve these types of issues. 

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