Question and Answers

Q:

Is there a break in period required for a new shifter arm in a Craftsman model 917.295652 tiller?

A:

There should not be a break in period for the shifter arm replacement on a tiller.

If you don't have a parts diagram for the tiller you can see one at [www.searspartsdirect.com]. Go to the "transmission" page.

The shift arm (item 13) moves the shift shaft (item 16) to change the gears inside the transmission.

Something is not connected between the shift arm and the shift shaft. You will have to figure out what is wrong with the connection.

Q:

My Craftsman Tiller 917.295652 only goes forward. Why?

A:

Unfortunately without actually seeing what is taking place inside the transmission, there is no way to determine what needs to be done. I recommend having a technician check this and make the adjustment or adjustments necessary. I'm listing a site you can check to have a technician come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Why won't the tines on my craftsman tiller turn?

A:

The wheels turning indicate the drive belt and pulley on the transmission are turning. As you indicated this means something inside the transmission is not driving the tine shaft.

There is nothing that is easily accessible to check or repair.

To repair the tiller, you will have to remove the transmission from the tiller and open it up. There is a roller chain inside the transmission that drives the tines. This chain might be broken or a sprocket might be stripped.

You can see a parts diagram of the transmission at [www.searspartsdirect.com].

A:

It ended up being the shift arm that was broken/stripped. I received the part today and got it installed and everything put back together. However, now no matter what position I move the shifter to (T,F,N,R) it always goes forward. So frustrating. I suppose I'll tear back into it tomorrow to see what is going on. Any ideas?
