Q:

Mower model917258552 ndlr installation

A:

Thank you for your question. 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the Craftsman tractor model 917258552. I will be happy to assist you with replacing the drive belt. I posted an image that contains the instructions for replacing the belt. Click on the image to enlarge it.

When you are ready to replace the drive belt, move the tractor to a hard level surface first. Then use the instructions to remove the mower deck. Once it is removed, you have better access to replace the drive belt. After you replace the belt and before installing the mower deck, I recommend checking the mower blades and mower belt. If they are worn, it is a good time to replace them. 

 


 If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a  Sears technician.  Here is a link for the website:  Sears Home Services.

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

Thank you for using Mange my life.

Q:

Mower deck is angled, why

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the mower deck. If the mandrel housing is broke, I suspect it took a significant impact from hitting something. If this is happened there is a chance, the deck is bent. The only way to check the deck is to replace the mandrel housing first. Once you have the housing replaced, turn the blades towards each other and see if they are even. If they are not even the deck housing is bent you can shim the mandrel housing with washers on the lower blade. To do this you will need to remove the outer most bolt for the housing. Then push the lower blade up and slide washers between the mower deck and the mandrel housing. Once have the two blades close to level reinstall the mandrel-housing bolt. Then reinstall the deck and level the mower deck.

Please let me know if you need further assistance repairing the tractor.
