Attaching mulch kit 33748 to tractor 28905

I have a slight problem when it comes to attaching the mulch plug. In the manual it says the plug assembly should be part number 631-04463 but the only number on the plug is 731-07185 When I try to put it on the mower as shown in the manual, the strap seems to be way too short, and if try to stretch it to where the pin is, then the plug pops out of where you place it into the discharge chute. Am I doing something wrong? Would the package have came with the wrong plug assembly? Thanks, Justin

Your details indicate that you have tractor model 28905 (full model number 247.28905). That tractor will use mulch kit number 33748. Here is a link for that mulch kit:

Craftsman 42'' Mulch Kit


According to your description, it sounds like you are using the wrong kit.

If you need more help, or have a different tractor, resubmit your question with additional details.

Turns out it was the right kit, I just had to man-handle it to get it to work. Slid in on the store model very easy; at home I had to hold the mower with one hand to keep it from sliding sideways, and push the plug in with the other hand, ended up hurting my shoulder a little in the process.
