Q:

bearing removal 917379202

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member. 

For wheel bearing 88058, there will be a clip behind it that secures it to the wheel adjuster. In order to remove the clip, you will need to pull the wheel adjuster from the deck. The clip is not offered singly, it is only offered with a replacement adjuster. 

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

Q:

The auto choke governor spring on my 917379202 mower is holding the choke open when the mower is off.

A:

The engine on your lawnmower does not have a choke according to our information. The only plate inside the carburetor is the throttle plate. It is normal for the throttle plate to be open until the governor closes it to maintain the correct engine speed.

The primer forces gas into the carburetor for easier starting.

It sounds like the carburetor has some stopped up fuel and gas passages inside it. The carburetor probably needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

Q:

Is there a Cover that goes over the primer bulb on mower model 917-379202? The mower leaks gas.

A:

The hole in the primer bulb is to let air inside the primer bulb. When you press the primer bulb, you force the air through the carburetor and draw fuel into the venturi of the carburetor from the bowl of the carburetor.

When fuel flows out of the hole in the primer bulb, it is because the needle on the float inside the bowl of the carburetor is not shutting the flow of gas from the fuel tank off.

When this condition exists, the fuel is also getting into the sump of the engine and mixing with the oil. If this is so, the diluted oil will cause serious damage to the engine internally. Be sure to check the oil for fuel and change the oil if needed.

To repair the problem with the carburetor, remove the carburetor from the engine. Remove the needle and float from the carburetor and run a small wire through the hole in the seat the needle seals to.

Replace the fuel line between the fuel tank and carburetor (this is usually where the debris comes from) and flush clean fuel through the seat to clear any debris that is left.
