A:

Thank you for the part number. The air baffle fits onto the stud of key number 7 in the image below. The air baffle is held in place by the silicone sleeve. The sleeve pushed onto the stud after the baffle. The sleeve is key number 10 in the image below. When you install the wing nut, it holds all the parts together. The air baffle should be pointing in the same direction as shown in the image below.

Q:

I have a Craftsman tractor, mower, model 917276010. The pto is engaged but the blades turn off and on. Is this an electrical problem?

A:

You can test the electrical connections with out starting the tractor engine. Turn the ignition switch to on and put the pto switch in the engage position. The electric clutch will close. You can push and pull and jiggle the wires to the electric clutch and the pto switch. Move the wires in the connector to the relay behind the dash also. This relay furnishes the ground to the electric clutch.

Q:

I have a craftsman lawn tractor model 917276010 I had the tractor running while I was airing up the tire for reasons unknown it stopped and wouldn't start .

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. Based on the details you added I suspect there is a problem with the fuel delivery to the carburetor or no voltage to the fuel solenoid. I recommend checking the voltage to the fuel solenoid first. You should have 12 volts DC when the key is in the run position and some one is on the seat. If you have the voltage, I recommend removing the float bowl. If the float bowl is empty, check for a stuck float, plugged filter, plugged line, or a faulty pump.

Please let me know if you need further assistance, on the repair of the tractor.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
