A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the deflector. I checked all of the books we have here but everything I find is no longer available. I will call the manufacture on Monday to see if they offer a side deflector any longer. I will post my findings as soon as possible.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

How do I change the "starter rope" for my Craftsman lawn mower model 917388610?

A:

According to your mower model number, it is likely that your mower has a Tecumseh engine model 143.016702 (LEV 120) on it. It is likely that your engine has starter part number 590739. I recommend that you replace the entire starter assembly. It costs about $45 from the Sears PartsDirect website. You can check the model number on the engine and view the parts list diagram on the Sears PartsDirect website. You will need remove the blower housing to access and change the starter. Spring tension on the start is tight. Use extreme caution when accessing this part. I recommend wearing protective gloves and eye protection when completing this repair. If you are not completely confident in your technical ability to safely access the starter and complete this repair, I recommend having a service technician complete the service.
