Q:

Gas tank and air filter 917291480 Craftsman Front tine tiller

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Based upon tiller model 917.291480, I show this uses a Briggs engine with a model of 126402-0206-E1.

Based upon the engine model number, I show the fuel tank is secured by two bolts on the base. The air filter cover is held down by a bolt. Once that bolt is removed, the cover will come off to gain access to the air filter. 

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

Q:

Stating the tiller 917291480 Craftsman Front tine tiller

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having starting the tiller. I know how frustrating that can be.

With the tiller sitting for a year, it will be common for it to be a little stubborn to start. I would make sure the fuel is fresh. It would be unlikely the carburetor is dirty if you ran the fuel out before storage and since it was replaced.  If you're sure the fuel is fresh, then I would pull the plug and reattach the boot to the plug and ground the base of it to the metal cylinder head. With a helper pulling the rewind start; check to see if there is spark coming from the base of the plug. If so, the tiller has spark and it will be narrowed down to fuel. If not, the spark module will need to be replaced. 

If spark is good, it's likely to be a carburetor issue. Make sure none of the fuel lines are cracked or deteriorated, which could prevent good fuel flow. The tank could also have a restriction and not be allowing the fuel to flow. 

I hope these suggestions help, and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
