Ted Sears, Craftsman probably made millions of lawn tractors over the years, you can get parts from Sears for these tractors, you already have the #s needed.
They used alot of Peerless Transaxles which can be found in many different makes of tractors.
When I'm looking for something I find alot of the time it's easier to buy another tractor similar to what I have, you might try this sometimes you get lucky.

Ted, can you post a pic of the tractor, and if possible, a pic of the transaxle? There should be a tag somewhere on the transaxle stating the make & model of the trans unit.

I have it stored in the back of my garage but I do have the Sears owners manual that has a picture of it on the front and I have an exploded view of the transaxle. I do know it has FOOTE on the transaxle. If that will help Ican surely put that on the thread. By the way I too am a south central KY man. I live in Leitchfield, KY

... Shifter (part #106594X) or a complete transaxle for a model 917-255720 lawn tractor...


Hi TedS, welcome to GTTALK! May be that I'm missing something, but I can't find that pt# under that model at sears.com. The closest I could find was a 106594X shift rod & a "Plate" that is NLA... If you got the pt# from the book, could you please verify? If this is a transmission internal part, it may be pretty tough to find it... Went thru a struggle recently myself with Craftsman & Discontinued parts. The parts list is really bad, if you send a pic of what it is you're looking for, someone may have one & not know it by that pt #. There's a place up this way that may eventually run across one. Jamestown Pa Lawn & Garden Lawn Mower Grave Yard Used Tractor Parts Salvage Guy's name is Bill. He's a nice guy & will look for one for you. Good luck in your search

Thanks guys I have taken all my numbers from the Sears owners manual and from the parts page and here are the #s. The part I accually need is Part #106594X and according to the description it's call a Assembly, Shifter it is on page 37 and the model # of the tractor is 917.255720 I am going to try an send pics. Not qiute sure how to do it but i will try. If you can make out the #s 55 is the part I need. It is the part that shifts the gears. This is a 4 foward and 1 reverse.

DH1 The bottom part of it is broken off and I could not find it when I put a new reverse chain in. I broke the chain by putting my fishing boat in the grage hit a pole. It will not stay in gear.

Bottom part you mean the arm?
If you had the missing part could it be welded back on?

I am sure it could be. It is the piece that goes under the ring that slides on the bar that moves the gears.

It has GOT to be in there...no way for it to get out. No way it was chewed up to oblivion. If it's stuck in that grease somewhere, if/when it comes in contact with some gears, it's "crunch time" again!

Ted, you definitely need to get the old piece out of there. If you don't it may not happen right away but sooner or later it is going to wreck havoc on the rest of the tranny.

Planning on getting it out sometime this week if I get the roof work done for my daughter. By the way does anyone have any idea how to get the wheels off this thing. I have tried wheel puller,penetrateing oil, blocks of wood and hammer.Nothing I have tried has worked.
