The screws are fuel screws so unscrewing them will ritchen the mixture, start with the L screw, this will be the closest to the cylinder, start the engine and warm up, gently screw the jet in, the revs will start to increase as it leans off, at the point where it then starts to die because its too lean, turn the screw out 1/4 turn, now start with the H screw, open the throttle fully, if the engine struggles to accelerate unscrew the jet 1/4 turn and try again.

Your best taking it to a good lawnmower repair shop as they will have the tools to find and fix the problem.
I'm assuming you mean there is no power going to the left wheel? I am not very familiar with Husqvarna mowers but this sounds like there is a problem with the drive system or transmission links.
You could try safely raising both back wheels, (drive wheels), off the ground onto axle stands. With the power OFF turn each wheel by hand. They should turn smoothly and feel the same. If one side is slack, tight or 'notchy', that is the side where your problem is likely to be.
Carefully start the mower and GENTLY apply power to see if both wheels turn together.
The popping and jerking could be the drive system slipping and missing.

Most likely not. Check to see if the linkage has loose bolts or connections. There may be debris stuck in the linkage and causing it to hit something.

Look very close-up for either a pinched wire or pinched gas line in the radius when it's turned left.

There are certain things you need for it to start and run,
A good spark, and at the correct time.
A fresh fuel supply to the cylinder
A sealed engine with no leaks
So with the plug well grounded against the cylinder do you have a spark when you crank the engine? if you remove the flywheel is the key not sheared?
After cranking the engine do we have signs of fuel on the plug tip? do we have excessive fuel in the engine ( carb needle leaking ) when the engine was rebuilt were the crank seals in good condition? was the cylinder sealed properly onto the crankcase?
Do you have a pressure tester to see if the carb is leaking at the needle?
Was the piston and ring in good condition with no excessive ring wear?

My guess is you used gas containing ethanol and its gummed up the carburetor.

But first try standard troubleshooting procedures. Check for spark (using a spark tester) and check for fuel problems by spraying starting either into the air intake. (If it runs, even only a couple of seconds, it's a gummed up carb.)

If it's a gummed up carb, you can sometimes get the clogs to dissolve by adding SeaFoam to the gas (I usually go heavy) and run (or try to run) to pull the gas and SeaFosm into the carb. Then let it sit for a couple of days (the longer he better, but dont expect more after a week.) The SeaFoam will slowly dissolve the gunk. It this doesn't work, you will have pull the carb and use carb cleaner. (Or you can take it to your dealer and pay him to do it. They have special devices, such as an ultrasonic cleaner that can dissolve clogs.)

This seems to be a common problem with the riding mower. I did find a solution, hopefully this helps. Although this particular mower is a craftsman I've noticed the problems with quite a few different brands and models. Not sure if your part is available at Sears if not you could try:

If the axle has come out of the transaxle, the transaxle has to be taken apart to repair. The reason is the axles are held in the transaxle with clips on the inside. Once you have the transaxle apart,look for the clips. If they are broken, be sure to find all of the pieces. If you leave any thing loose inside it could find its way into the gears and cause a failure. If you need to order the clips, you can do so from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct

If this is your front end, I'd say you probably bent the linkage rods. 61 & 62.
Most alignments start with the steering wheel centered, bring the closest wheel in to alignment, then work the other one in. Again, on these the links often get bent.

if it's a twin cyl engine, one of the cylinders probably isn't firing

if it's noisy when it's slipping then the trans is going bad. not worth fixing most of the time
