Q:

need to lube transaxle sears tract. mod 917272670

A:

Thank you for your question.

I have checked the model number that you have submitted. The transaxle in your tractor takes 12-16 oz of Bentonite grease. Bentonite greases are recommended where the equipment is likely to get wet. They will not wash out, and are practically impossible to blend with water. The part number for the grease is 4300. Please click on the following link if you need to order the grease . If you need further assistance, please reply below.

Q:

my mower won't start

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with starting the engine on the tractor. The problem might be the valves out of adjustment. That is the most common cause of the motor only turning a little and stopping. The engine has a compression release on the camshaft that opens the valve slightly on the compression stroke. If the valves are out of adjustment, the engine will do what you have explained. Please click here to be taken to an answered question. Once on that question go to the second page. I had provided two links to videos that show how to adjust the valves.

If following the instruction in the link do not help pleas reply below.
