Question and Answers

Q:

when connecting the solenoid to the starter does the top of the solenoid push up on the white piece or does it go above the white piece? model number CV730 type number 0017

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I will be happy to assist you. The plunger has a notch that the lever fits on. When you energize the solenoid, it pulls the plunger down. This caused the gear to engage the ring gear on the flywheel. It also closes the contacts to run the starter motor. I posted an image below that shows the parts of the starter. Click on the image to enlarge it. I find it easier to connect the plunger if I pull the gear up. This will lower the lever and make it easier to connect the plunger.

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

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Ignition module 917276906 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Sorry for the confusion. Look at the serial number on the engine instead of the tractor frame. The engine should have a separate serial number that fits the format described above.
