Q:

Rototiller does not drive forward or reverse 917297040 Craftsman Tiller

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your tiller will not go in foward or reverse. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information to assist you. There could be more than one part that could cause the issue. The parts could be the belt, the chain inside the transmission has broke , or the transmission itself is no good. 

I have seen that when the chain is bad it is more cost effective to purchase a new transmission. 

I recommend getting a service technican to take a look at the transmission. I do apologize we do not have access to the service manual for your transmission.

You can also visit searpartsdirect.com for parts, diagrams, and repair information.
 
 
If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . 

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

Thanks for the info. I went ahead and dis-assembly the tiller down to the transmission. The #25-50 pitch chain was broken. The broken chain also ruin the ground shaft gear. I am ordering parts from searspartsdirect.com and attempt to fix the transmission myself. Thanks for looking into this matter.
