Question and Answers

Q:

My back wheel is broken but I can loosen the bolt to remove the tire, any suggestions? 917297010 Craftsman Tiller

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when needing to remove the bolt for your tiller tire. I did look into the question you have provided and I have found ways to loosen the bolt.
Usually WD 40 or a lubricant will work to loosen the bolt on your tiller. You will need to try and push and pull on the bolt to loosen. The bolts stay on for a while so they can get stuck. I do apologize that is all the information I have to remove the bolt. 

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

A:

Good morning.... I can understand your confusion. Did you try draining the tank and flushing the system? It would be very helpful if you could include your full model number. I will forward your question to an expert who will investigate the matter further and get back to you. You will hear from them within two business days if not sooner. Until you hear from us, have a nice day.

You'll need to service the carburetor on your tiller. It sounds like there may be a couple of problems with it. Even though you drained the gas out of it when you put it up, there may have still be some residual fuel left in the carburetor that has caused this to happen.

You can watch the video at the link I've posted below to see how to service your carburetor. Most likely, the carburetor on your engine will be a little bit different than the one used in the video, but the idea behind the cleaning is going to be the same.

To alleviate these problems, I've gotten to where I buy a quart can of straight gas (no ethanol) with a fuel preserver (conditioner) mixed into it and run that through the engine for about 10mins before I put my machines up for any amount of time. The gas isn't the problem, it's the ethanol in pump gas that causes these problems.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

craftmans tiller transmission fuild 917.297010

A:

Since it is a sealed transmission with no serviceable parts, I do not have a specification for the quantity and/or type of lubricant that is used in this component. I recommend that you replace the transmission.
