Question and Answers


starter rope 917374353 Craftsman Mower


Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your lawn mower. Upon researching model 917374353; the easiest way to fix a problem with the starter including replacing the starter rope is to replace the starter assembly. The starter has a wound up spring so when it is taken apart it can be very difficult to put it back together successfully. I recommend replacing the complete starter if any part of the starter needs to be replaced. The starter is already assembled and just needs to be secured in place of the old starter. I have posted a link of the starter to view the link click here.

I trust that this information will help you, thank you have a great day.
