Model #917256500 Craftsman lawn, tractor

Question and Answers


I have a Craftsman lawn tractor #917256500. I am trying to put on a new cutting deck and need some step by step instructions. I'm stuck on the springs.


Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with installing the break springs. I know how frustrating they are tor install. When connected correctly the spring will push the brake pad against the mandrel pulley. I posted the best image of the springs we have. Click on the image to enlarge it. If the image is not helpful, please reply below with an image of the mower deck. I might be able to use your image to show where the spring connects.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
