Question and Answers

Q:

oil leaking from valve cover 917299011 Craftsman Tiller

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with oil leaking into the air filter assembly. I know how frustrating that is.

This can commonly happen if the oil level is overfilled, or if the carburetor is sticking and flooding the cylinder with fuel. That will cause fuel to mix with oil in the crankcase and overfill it. I would start there first to make sure that's not the issue. 

You could also have an issue with the breather or crankcase vent if the engine has one equipped. I don't see one on the parts list, but there usually is. Another possibility would be with blowby from worn pistion rings. 

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

Q:

Tiller won't start - No spark 917299011 Craftsman Tiller

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your tiller and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 917299011 and I recommend checking the engine for spark first. To check for spark remove the spark plug. Then connect the spark plug to the spark plug wire. Now you will need to hold the base of the spark plug to a clean metal surface with insulated pliers. Once you have the spark plug in position have a helper turn the engine over. You should see a blue spark from the spark plug. If you do not have spark, remove the kill wire from the module. Then check for spark again. If there is no spark, the module is defective. It can also be an issue with the fuel or the compression. The first thing I would do is remove the fuel filter and pour a few teaspoons for fuel into the throat of the carburetor. Then try to start the engine. If the engine starts and stalls the problem is in the fuel supply or carburetor. Usually the carburetor needs to be cleaned because it has been sitting. Once the carburetor is cleaned, fill the tank with fresh fuel and check the operation. If the engine does not try to start with pouring gas into the carburetor the problem could be with compression. To check the compression you need to remove the spark plug. Then tuck the spark plug wire out of the way. Put your finger over the spark plug hole to seal it. The compression should blow past your finger. If it does not the engine has an internal problem. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. I trust this information will help you.
