I have a Craftsman 6.75 HP push gas mower with Tecumseh engine. I want
to replace the pull rope but I can't remove the blower cover. The
plastic gas tank blocks access to the last cover screw in the rear. I
can't figure out how to separate the tank from the cover. I removed
screws on the left and right that anchor the tank but can't find any
more. The tank won't budge off of the cover. Any experience on this
go to PARTS like you want to buy some parts for the mower and you can
view the diagram.. also i remember when i was changing out of pull rope
on a mower years ago.. i tried to get a screw off that was holding the
round thing that goes back in with the rope.. it did not want to budge..
i kept on forcing it and it snapped.. found out later it was a LEFT HAND
Thread on the screw.. i just driller it out and put in a sheetmetal
screw with some difficulty, but it held... so with a diagram you should
not have any problems with the figuring out how to get the cover off...
how aobut decals maybe covering some of the screws??????
