CRAFTMAN RIDING MOWER, MODEL: 917276760, ENGINE 18.5 ho ohv

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I believe that your problem may be a plugged gas cap vent or vapor lock. To check the cap run the tractor until it starts to run rough then loosen the cap, do not remove it, if the engine smoothes out the vent is most likely plugged and should be cleaned or the cap replaced. If the problem persists the try moving the fuel line away from the engine block. If you find the fuel cap is fine the problem might be a defective ignition coil. Once the coil heats up it stops producing the spark you the spark plug. Next time the engine dies check for spark at the spark plug.

Any parts you may need are available at Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this helps.

If I can be of further assistance please feel free to submit any questions you have along with the specifics.
