Question and Answers

Q:

don't started, i don't have electricity to crank PB2042YT Poulan Tractor

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

 

I am sorry you are having this problem with the tractor. I recommend determining what is causing the engine not to turn over. First, make sure the engagement lever is down or the PTO button is pushed in and the brake pedal is fully depressed or the tractor will not attempt to turn over. If you have already done this, I recommend checking the fuse. The fuse is located behind the dash. If the fuse is good, you have a wiring or switch problem. The easiest way to pin point the problem is with a volt meter. If you do not have a meter, you can purchase one relatively cheap.

 

Turn the meter to check dc volts, and then hold the black lead to the black negative battery terminal for all of the voltage checks. Place the red lead on the positive terminal of the battery. The reading should be 12 volts. If you have a 12 volt reading, move the red lead to the first blue dot in the image. Your reading should be 12 volts. If you have 12 volts, have someone sit on the tractor and hold the brake pedal while turning the key for the rest of the checks. While they have the key turned to the start position, move the red lead to the next blue dot. The reading should always be 12 volts. Then move to the next blue dot. If you lose the 12 volts, the problem is between the last blue dot you had the voltage and where you lost the voltage. If you have 12 volts all the way to the white wire on the solenoid, the solenoid or the starter is defective.

 

To determine starter or solenoid short the two large posts on the solenoid together with a screwdriver. There should be a spark it is normal. Once shorted the starter should run. 

 

If the tractor still will not run once you get the starting issue fixed, please let me know. I will be happy to assist you with diagnosing that.

 

 

 

If you need to order parts for the tractor, you can do so from the following link. Replacement parts for a Poulan tractor model PB2042YT.

 

I hope this is helpful.  Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

 

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

control throtter/cluch PB2042YT

A:

Thank you for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. 

The Choke and Throttle Control is a complete assembly and does include the cable. Unfortunately the manufacturer doesn't offer the cable singly, it is only offered in conjunction with the control assembly.

For convenience purposes, I have included a blue link below that you may click on to be directed to the PartsDirect page to view and purchase the assembly.

Q:

where can i find a gas cap for craftsman lawn tractor model no.917.289244 ,21hp briggs &stratton model no.331877 ?

A:

It is likely that the Sears store has a replacement gas cap that will fit your tractor in the retail part of the store instead of the Parts & Repair section. That may be why it is not listed in the parts system. If you cannot find a gas cap in the retail store that will fit your tractor, you can order part 425162 from the Sears PartsDirect website or the Parts & Repair Center at the store. If you order it at the Parts & Repair Center they also may need the division number (071) and source number (917) to properly order the correct part. This gas cap (part 425162) is listed for a similar tractor (Poulan model PB2042YT) that has the same exact gas tank (part 407489) as your Craftsman tractor.
