Craftsman

Having trouble finding steering part for Craftsman DYT 4000 Lawn Tractor, model #917.273241. Doesn't show in the Owner's Manual Steering Assembly parts diagram. There is a steel bar that goes from the steering wheel mechanism to the left front steering assembly. It fits over a round ball that's bolted to the spindle assembly. A rubber gasket fits over the ball and the steel bar holding it in place. That gasket wore out and/or the hole in the steel rod has enlarged from prolonged use. Help!

All Craftsman mowers are made by MTD. Craftsman lawn tractors run the price spectrum from rear-drive models priced around $1,300 to full-featured, hydrostatic drive units that cost more than $2,000. Most Craftsman lawn tractors feature Briggs & Stratton engines, and the 42-inch-deck models are among the most popular.
MTD makes all of the store brands (i.e., a mower that might have the Home Depot name on it), along with MTD, Dynamark, YardPro, Weed Eater, Noma, and Sears Craftsman. Murray makes MTD. MTD makes the low end (non-commercial) John Deere tractors. John Deere makes all John Deere.
To determine the year of manufacture for a tractor with a six digit number use the following formula. Take the first and the fourth digit, and subtract three to get the year. For example, the serial number of 395602 would be: 36-3 = 1933.
The Model number is eleven characters long and is printed on the left side of the Product Identification Label. Characters can include numbers, letters or hyphens.
Generally, you can identify a Craftsman tool by the logo or the name that`s printed/embossed into the tools themselves. Craftsman as a brand hasn`t changed its name since Sears & Roebuck introduced it in 1927, so each tool should bear either the name or logo (usually somewhere on the handle).
