Hey there,

I see you are looking for instructions on your craftsman generator. If you would like you may go to the manuals tab and enter your model number and it should pull up enough information for you to finish out your project. I have also have attached the link below if you have trouble located the maunals. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

The battery in your generator will have a bracket holding it in place. You should see two rods that have a hook on the end. The other end will have a nut. Loosen the nuts on the rods. They might have to come all the way off to get the hold down out of the way. Before removing the battery, make note of the position of the terminals. Place the new battery in the generator and retighten the nuts for the hold down.

Make sure to connect the red wire to the positive post and the black wire to the negative post on the battery.

If you reverse the wires, it could ruin the generator. If you need further assistance, please submit more details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:

Mark, Your description does not match the parts that hold the battery tray. The rest of your answer is right on.
Gas tank removed this AM and battery replaced, working fine now. Thanks
