Question and Answers

Q:

riding mower model number 917256711

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I will be happy to assist you. First, disconnect the battery. The remove the hood and set it aside. Next, remove the bolts securing the blower housing to the top of the engine. Remove the housing and set it aside. Now you should be able to see the starter. To remove the starter, take the wire off first. Then locate and loosen the mounting nuts. On some models, the flywheel has to be removed to access the nuts. If you have this style, you will need a puller to remove the flywheel. Once the mounting nuts are removed, the starter should come out. Then reverse these steps to install the new starter.



I hope this is helpful. If you need further assistance, please reply below with more details.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

How do I get at the steering assembly for my Craftsman lawn tractor?

A:

You need to remove the deck from the tractor. Lift the front end so that you can slide underneath and work.

Underneath the sector gear and steering shaft bearing block is a bolt holding the steering shaft in place, remove it.

Pull the steering wheel up and the steering shaft will lift out of the bearing block.

Remove the e-rings holding the pittman shaft to the sector gear and remove the steering link. It should come apart now.

Go to www.sears.com., select parts. Enter the model number of the tractor and select steering from the list. Select "view image" from the list and you can see how everything is put together.
