I have a Husqvarna 235-e chainsaw with a newly rebuilt carb and motor but it still won’t start. Any ideas?
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?

I have followed manual instructions but still can't get my NEW Husqvarna 445 to start, just one short sputter (per day).
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.)

Adjust steering on riding mower 42 inch
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.
