When you suspect that there’s a problem with the carburetor in your Craftsman Model 917.377593 and you’ve resolved to undertake the repair yourself, then you will likely need to eliminate the bowl kit out of the carburetor. You have to first remove the carburetor before removing the bowl kit. Only then is it possible to prior to proceeding with the rest of the repair, detach the bowl kit.
