Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your tiller and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 917294480 and from your description I would also suspect the chain may have snapped or came of the sprocket. You will need to open the transmission to determine of the chain in fact is damaged. Here is a link for a video that may help with additional troubleshooting.

Q:

craftsman rototiller 917.294480

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

As far as the engine is concerned, the only lubricant used is the standard SAE 30 motor oil, so this Briggs may have two oil drain ports, which some Briggs engines support. The transmission of the tiller uses grease, so there wouldn't be any other lubricant used on the unit. I don't anticipate any issue and would refill the unit with the proper oil and capacity. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
