Question and Answers

Q:

quantity of oil needed 917297020 Craftsman Tiller

Q:

Won't pull 917297020 Craftsman Tiller

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the lack of movement you're having with the tiller. I know how frustrating that is.

I would start by making sure the pins are intact in the wheels. If that checks out, I would recommend undoing the belt guard and make sure the belt is in place around the pulleys. Make sure the drive control cable is connected. The owner's manual will cover this on page 16, and I would recommend making these checks, and performing the belt adjustment if everything checks out. 

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

Q:

tiller stuck in neutral, 917.297020

A:

I understand how concerning this can be especially only using it for a bit. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I was searching the Manage My Life website and found your owners manual. I also found a great link on why your Tiller might be stuck on neutral. I have attached the links below. Have a nice day!

A:

Basically, the entire tiller has to be disassembled in order to open the transmission up. The manufacturer does not provide a service manual for the transmission so there really isn't any kind of a guide out there for going into and servicing the transmission. You can click the link I've attached below to view the parts images as this will help you determine how everything must be positioned inside the transmission.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
