Question and Answers

Q:

How do you remove the gas tank to replace oil fill tube on a Craftsman mower?

A:

Looking at the parts illustrations on the Sears PartsDirect site might help you understand how the parts fit together and see all the mount bolts.

The fuel tank is part of the engine assembly so you will need to look under the listings for the engine model itself. According the parts listings for your model mower the engine is a 143.996704.

You may have missed a mount bolt, such as item 346A in the image below from the PartDirect site. The tube is shown as item 305 in the image.

Or, looking at the inner shape of the tank it might become apparent that something else may need to be removed to make room for the tank to come off.

While my response is several years late, I felt that this would be helpful for others who have the same engine model. The tank is held in place not only by the bolts, but by two large circular tabs on the sides as well. Pull on each side of the tank until the tabs are free from their holes, then pull the tank upwards.
