The replacement decks for the 2 mowers are different part numbers. The lift mechanism is the same on the decks.

Q:

has to do with 2 parts on the brake system on a Craftsman model # 917270732 riding lawn mower

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the brakes on the tractor. I posted three images below. They show how the brake is assembled and how to adjust the brakes. Just click on the image to enlarge it. Once you have the brake assembled, slide a feeler gauge between the disk and puck. Then tighten the nut until you feel a slight drag on the feeler gauge.

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

Mark T.
