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.)

How to Replace a Husqvarna Zero-Turn Riding Mower Ground Drive Belt

Husqvarna Garden | Answered on Aug 25, 2019

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:


I am including the link and a pic as well of the online solution below.

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

Husqvarna Garden | Answered on Aug 15, 2019

some dont have fuses but if there is one it would normally be near the keyswitch

Husqvarna Garden | Answered on Aug 15, 2019

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

Husqvarna Garden | Answered on Aug 15, 2019

did you figure it out

Husqvarna Garden | Answered on Aug 15, 2019

could be the belt, trans or the selector for disengagement is switched to push

Husqvarna Garden | Answered on Aug 15, 2019

If you have a carb with a bowl, it may have a center screw that is where the gas gets pulled up into the engine. Check the bottom inside edge of that screw. There should be a tiny hole that lets the gas up into the engine. Take a wire and clean it out and make sure it is open. Old gas can form varnish and that can plug the hole.
