I can understand how important it is to have the right information for your lawn tractor. On this model the spring is hooked into the idler bracket. To remove it just up hook it. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
Thank you for your question. I can understand your frustration with the bagger. Now, it will be normal for it to get clogged up if the grass has any moisture. However, it may help to mow at a slower speed and maybe cut at a higher level. Some tractor models have a high lift blade that would also help. If you intend to keep the bagger assembly together, using some duct tape would be ok. However, I suggest making sure chute strap is stretched and hooked to the pin. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and please include the complete model and serial number of the tractor and I will assist you further.
. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance not working.
The halves need to be split and this will expose the impeller. The engine shaft is tapered (no puller available for this) you have to break the impeller loose from the shaft. Remove the bolt and washer holding the impeller on the motor shaft. Start the bolt back in the hole. Run it in until the head is only 1/8 inch away from the impeller. Place a large screw driver or pry bar between the impeller and the rear of the chipper, and pry hard on one side. Hit the head of the bolt firmly with a good sized hammer. The shock will break the impeller loose and it will come off. If the impeller does not loosen up with a couple of whacks with the hammer use a quality penetrating oil and allow it to sit for at least half an hour. If the impeller does not loosen after that, do not continue banging on it, you could damage the shaft or the engine.
I highly recommend calling a service professional to diagnose and repair your chipper. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician remove the impeller, you can take the chipper shredder into your nearest Sears Repair Center or Sears Store.

Usually when oil is coming out of the muffler, it is because the engine is over filled with oil or the mower was tipped wrong to sharpen the blade. First check the oil level and dump some out if it is over full. Then remove the air filter. If it is oil soaked, wash out the oil with soap and water. Next, wipe up any oil around the carburetor and muffler. Once it is clean try to start the engine. If it does not start, you might have to replace the spark plug. Once you get the engine started let it run for about five minutes. The smoking should stop. If it stops smoking, reinstall the air filer and continue using the mower normally.
Due to the fact the mower is new i recommend taking it to one of our drop off locations to have it repaired. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:

Hello glad to help. Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when having the trouble with your motor on your tiller.
I am sorry for the trouble. Strange an engine around 2 years old would be having the trouble. At the cost of a new engine, it is cheaper, quicker and easier in the long run to just buy a new tiller. If you click below you can see the engine to bought if so interested.
