Q:

Gas tank for push mower model 917376656 917376656 Craftsman Mower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. 

Anytime you need an engine related part for anything Lawn & Garden related, you will need to identify the engine model number versus the mower model number and input that into the PartsDirect site to get the engine parts.

In this case, I see the engine model number as 122T02-0377-B1. From there, we input that into the website and the fuel tank is listed on the 'Fuel Tank/Rewind Starter/Flywheel' schematic as number 972. 

For convenience purposes, I have attached a blue link below that you may click on to be directed to the PartsDirect site to view and purchase the fuel tank for this model.

Good morning... I can fully understand your concern regarding your mower shutting down. I did locate a link that will discuss your situation in greater detail. Though this link discusses a different model number, the mechanics are likely going to be very similar. Keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction. I hope this link will help guide you as to what might be wrong with your mower and have a nice day.

Thank you for your question. Usually when the mower starts and stalls, right away it has a dirty carburetor. First, make sure the fuel is no older than 5 weeks old. Next check the air filter. If the air filter is plugged the mower may not run. If the air filter is clean and the fuel is fresh, I recommend cleaning the carburetor.  To clean the carburetor you have to remove the spark plug wire and tip the mower on to its side. Make sure the oil fill tube is towards the ground. Then remove the float bowl nut on the bottom of the carburetor. Some fuel will leak out so do this in a well-ventilated area. Remove the float bowl, clean it with carburetor cleaner, and dry it. Do not get carburetor cleaner on the rubber gasket. The cleaner will expand the rubber and renders it useless. Next, put the straw on the spray nozzle of the carburetor cleaner. Spray the cleaner in to the holes where the float bowl nut came from. These are the fuel pick up tubes. Once those are flushed, clean the holes on the float bowl nut. I recommend cleaning the holes with bread tie wire and carburetor cleaner. Then assemble the carburetor.  Tip the mower back up right and test the operation. If the engine does the same starting and stalling, I recommend replacing the carburetor.  I had a customer send me a link to video he found that shows how to clean the carburetor. The engine is not exactly the same as yours but it will give you a general idea. Here is a link to that video    I hope this is helpful.  If you need further assistance, please reply with more details and a model number.   Here is a link to order any parts you need.

Q:

getting drive belt off of lawnmower

A:

Belt replacement can be a difficult job. One good thing to have on hand is the owner's manual with the diagrams and instructions. I attached the link to the manual for this model below as well as a previous expert post that seems to help answer your question. Hope this helps while you wait for the expert to review your model.

Thank you for your question.

Yes, you have to remove the blade adapter to replace the belt. To remove the blade adapter the gas should be drained or ran out of the tank so the lawnmower can be placed on the side. Lay the mower so the carburetor and air cleaner are up.

Block the blade with a piece of wood and remove the blade bolt and blade. The blade adapter should pull off the engine shaft unless it is rusted to the engine shaft.

Try spraying rust buster between the engine shaft and the blade adapter and tapping the blade adapter with a hammer to help the rust buster penetrate. Tap on the backside of the blade adapter to tap it off the engine shaft.

If this procedure does not work, put the blade bolt back into the engine shaft and tighten it until the head is about � inch from the blade adapter. Use a gear puller to pull the blade adapter off the shaft.

With the blade adapter off the debris shield will slide off the engine shaft.

I have also provided you with an image that has the instructions from the manual. If you need further assistance, please reply below wit more details.

Mark T had the perfect solution. Most "on-line" repairs do not mention the blade adapter removal and the difficulty of this particular task.
