Thank you for contacting manage my life for information concerning your mower model 917.377590, I will be glad to assist you. To remove the gas tank you must first remove the starter grill on the very top of the engine. There is one screw holding the grill in place and it is slotted on the other end. Once the grill cover is off you will see one screw on the gas tank (on the pull cord side) remove the screw and the tank will lift off straight up, until you can access the fuel line to disconnect. After fuel line is off the tank will pull straight up and off. (Always drain gas before starting repair and also remove spark plug from engine) (Always drain gas before starting repair and also remove spark plug from engine)  (Always drain gas before starting repair and also remove spark plug from engine) Wear proper safety equipment while servicing the product.I hope this helps you, if you need more help reply with added details and I will be happy to respond.

Remove the air filter cover and air filter. Then you'll need to remove the air filter base so the carburetor can be taken off of the mounting studs. Make sure to take the fuel line loose or the carburetor will not want to be easily pulled from the studs.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

I'll need the model number from the engine to see how yours is set up. The model number for the mower only gives me information for the mower itself and nothing for the engine.

You can click the link I've attached below to see the parts image for the engine. You'll notice the studs that hold the carburetor in place on the air filter base. Remove the nuts and studs and the carburetor will come right off of the engine.

A:

There are 2 studs with bolts next to the primer. I can loosen the nuts only halfway. Then the nut and stud revolve in place as one unit without unscrewing any further. Each revolution, I can see a metal plate on the inner side of the carb. flex as if the stud is pushing against it and then releasing.

A:

It sounds like the studs broke loose from the head assembly and are just spinning now. If you can get something in to put pressure against the studs you may be able to remove the nuts. If you cannot then it becomes a whole other process where things are cut off in order to get everything apart and then new parts are put in place.
