Model #917288131 Craftsman lawn, tractor

Question and Answers

Q:

I have a Craftsman Lawn Tractor model 917288130, 917288131, 917288132, or 917288133. Which model has an electric clutch?

A:

Model numbers 917.288130, 288131, and 288132 have a manual clutch. They don't have an electric clutch. Model 917.288133 is not a good model number and doesn't run in our system.

If your tractor has an electric clutch, it will have a switch on the dash that you pull out to engage the clutch. The manual clutches have a lever you move to engage the clutch.

Q:

transaxle oil type

A:

Thank you for your question.



I will be happy to assist you. I looked up the model number and the transaxle requires 10 ounces of 80W90 gear lube. If I remember correctly, you have to take the transaxle out and split the case to replace the axle seals. When you do this, be sure to take pictures so you do not have a problem putting it back together.

I hope this is helpful. If you need further assistance, please reply below with more details.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
