Thank you for your question.

 

I will be happy to assist you. I looked up the model number you submitted. The transaxle in the tractor uses 20W50 motor oil. I posted an image below that shows how to check the oil level. Click on the image to enlarge it. If you can not see the image please click on the following link.  Transaxle 917270722 Craftsman Tractor   

The best way to access the transaxle, is to remove the draw bar on the back of the tractor. The draw bar is the plate you connect the tow behind attachments.

 

 

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

 

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

How do I get to the alternator? 917270722 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for your question.I am sorry you are having a problem with the Craftsman mower model 917270722.  I will be happy to assist you. If the wires are not connected, the battery will not charge. Once the battery drains down the engine will quit. The problem might just be the wiring not the alternator. I recommend charging the battery first. Then start the engine and check the voltage output of the alternator. I posted an image below that show how to check the charging system on the engine. If you have the readings posited in the instructions you just need to reconnect the wires and it should be fine. If you do not get those readings, the alternator will need to be replaced. The parts for the tractor can be ordered from the following link. Replacement parts for Craftsman tractor model 917270722. If you need to replace the alternator just let me know I will be happy to assist you with it.  I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.   Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark
