Model #917287241 Craftsman lawn, tractor

Question and Answers

Q:

I have a tractor model 917287241. The pulley cut through the arm brake (199471). What's the correct brake position for the brake when I replace it?

A:

There is no adjustment on the blade brakes on the tractor. When you disengage the mower drive lever, the linkage should move the idler arm and engage the blade brakes. When the mower drive is engaged the brakes should be moved away from the mandrel pulleys.
