Q:

Can the brakes be adjusting on Craftsman Model #917287450 Tractor? 917287450 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I will be happy to assist you with adjusting the brakes on your tractor. The brake assembly on this tractor is located on the right side of the transaxle. The best way to find it is to lay down behind the tractor and look on the inside of the frame on the right side. The image below shows what the brakes look like. Just click on the image to enlarge it. Once you find the brake, insert a feeler gauge between the brake puck and brake disc. While moving the feeler gauge in and out, tighten the adjusting nut until you feel a little drag. Then remove the feeler gauge and check the operation.

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

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.
