Q:

Bigger mower tires? 917388134 Craftsman Lawn mower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Installing larger wheels in the front and rear is possible as long as the increase in height is the same increment for both front and rear, just as you mentioned in your details. If you were only to install larger rear tires and not fronts, the pitch would be off and it wouldn't cut even, and vice versa. However, with larger wheels, you could always adjust the cutting height down (currently in highest setting). 
Sears does not recommend larger diameter wheels for particular models because there are a lot of variables involved and Sears only recommend original parts be used on products. The larger wheels would still need to fit onto the axle arms and have the same diameter of center bore to accommodate the axle arm. However, with some research and maybe a trip down to your local Sears, I wouldn't see that it would be a big issue to find replacement wheels that would work.
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your mower not working. We are here to help.

The little cup under the fuel cap is called fresh start and it is a fuel stabilizer that doses the fuel each time you add fuel to the tank of the mower.  You can use the small replaceable dose caps called Fresh Start or you could use the larger bottle of fuel stabilizer.  Fuel stabilizer keeps the fuel fresh and helps prevent the fuel from going stale.  This will prevent the stalling from stale fuel and keep the spark plug clean by preventing plug fouling.  The instructions in the Owner’s Manual outline the steps for storing, cleaning and maintaining the mower.  

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.

Thanks for the response. I saw that posting, unfortunately the hinge bracket on my mower is different so the spring does not latch on the same place. I have added pictures of what the hinge bracket looks like.

One end of the spring will go through the slot in the door and the other end of the spring will need to be loaded to create the spring tension. I provided images of a similar mulch door with the spring installed. This may help you install the door.
