If it really 'lugs', meaning the engine gradually chugs slower and slower as if it's struggling, then it could be a belt problem, but I'm going to guess it just quits, which suggests a problem with the seat safety switch. Look under the seat, take out the safety switch, and tape it in the pushed-in position. See if the tractor runs now. If so, the switch is the culprit - either it failed, or the mounting is wonky so it doesn't activate when you're in the seat.

SOURCE: Mower blades will not engage

Start by checking to see if you have pulled one of the electric wires loose that acts as a safety to disengage the clutch. Check all wires to make sure none are pulled loose. Then check all wires to see that none are bare and contacting metal (grounding out) causing the mower deck to not operate. This happens often.

1- the clutch mechanism may be obstructed - check above mower assembly and clear obstructions;

2- mower clutch engagement switch may be faulty - replace if needed;

3- the mower drive belt may be loose, damaged or disengaged - repair, adjust or replace belt;

4- the idler pulley could be frozen - replace;

5- the blade mandrel may be frozen - replace.

Check the wiring at the clutch itself. There should be a quick connector right near the clutch itself. You can test these wires to see if you have 12 volts coming out of them when the PTO switch is pulled out. You can also check the clutch by using jumper wires and running them directly to the clutch. Once connected you should hear an audible click of the clutch engaging. If you get nothing then the clutch has gone bad on you.

If you hear a click while you run down 12v from battery down to clutch lead.Then there is a confirm break or cut in the wirings.

There is something between the battery and the clutch that is not allowing power to come through to the clutch. USe a test light or meter and trace the wiring back from the clutch to the switch, then from the switch back to the battery.


--------------

Most likely, the problem is a safety switch. Sometimes its a "seat switch" which prevents the blades from engaging if the operator isn't sitting down.

Looking for belt drive 2042 rail sprockets


Notes on replacing drive sprocket on Genie 2042 belt drive garage door opener.
The unit originally came with a cast metal sprocket disk with a plastic sleeve insert that formed the sprockets themselves. The plastic insert's sprockets shattered when I tried opening the garage door that had frozen shut with ice. Genie's service assistant was of no help, as she suggested that I remove the entire rail then call them back. Removal of the rail was totally unnecessary. I purchased an all metal sprocket designed for the 2042 from an on-line supplier. Neither the owner's manual nor on-line instructions were available to assist me. I followed these steps:
    1.With the door open, loosen the tension on the belt by turning the bolt in the tension assembly located on the rail opposite side of the motor. Slide the belt off the pulley and let the belt hang.
    2.The sprocket housing is located on top of the motor. Unscrew the two Phillips screws that hold the sprocket housing onto the motor assembly.
    3.Using a screwdriver, force the cover up. The cover is on a hinge-like appendage that is riveted onto the rail frame. With the housing pried up, the belt and sprocket can be seen.
    4.Pull the belt out of the housing to allow the old sprocket to be removed. Be careful to locate the black plastic bushing/spacer on top of the old sprocket and save it for the new sprocket.
    5.Install the new sprocket and bushing/spacer into the motor shaft along with the belt.
    6.Replace the two Phillips screws on the sprocket cover.
    7.Place the belt back on the tension assembly and tighten to manufacturer's specifications.
    8.If the motor won't run from the wall switch, the up/down limits need to be reset. The motor will move the garage door up and down using the control buttons on the bottom of the motor unit. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on setting the up/down limits, which include holding the "set" buttons for over 5 seconds once the garage door is in the desired up and down locations.

I've got a 2005 husqvarna yth 2042 riding mower,i broke one of the belt guides,(on order)-the spring extension for the clutch,where does it hook to?


Not too sure which guide you are refering too, the only keeper at the clutch is the anti rotation bracket for the clutch itself, it bolts to the side of the chassis and the other end sits into a cut a way in the side of the clutch assembly.

The belt dry rotted and flew off without me being able to remove it myself, now I need to know how to install the new drive belt.


To install the drive belt you will have to remove the drive belt first.
Follow the procedure: ---
Park the tractor on a level surface. Set the parking brake and remove the key from the ignition. Study the belt replacement guide decal located underneath the left foot board for proper belt routing instructions.
Remove the mowing deck by first moving the attachment clutch lever to the disengaged position (toward you). Move the attachment lift lever all the way forward to lower the mower housing to its down position.
Crawl beneath the tractor and roll the drive belt off engine pulley (it hangs directly beneath the engine). Remove small retainer clip that holds the clutch spring to the pulley bolt located at the center of the mowing deck. Remove the large retainer springs (two of them), then slide the belt collar away from the mower housing and off the housing bracket.
Disconnect the anti-sway bar rods from the chassis brackets by removing the retaining cotter pins. Disconnect front links from the mower deck by removing retaining cotter pins. Disconnect the suspension arms from the rear mower deck brackets by removing the two cotter pins.
Move the attachment lift lever all the way to the forward position to raise the mower suspension arms to the full up position. Slide the mower deck out from beneath the tractor.
Crawl beneath the tractor and roll the drive belt off of the stationary idler pulley and the clutching idler pulley. They are both located immediately adjacent to the engine pulley. Be sure the belt is already away from the engine pulley, as well.
Push the drive belt slack toward the rear of tractor. Remove the drive belt from the Trans axle pulley by taking it over the trans axle pulley while compressing the movable belt keepers surrounding it. Remove the old belt from the tractor by pushing it clear of the center span keeper (located beneath the Trans axle pulley).
Install a new drive belt by following the reverse of the instructions for removal. Test the tractor and mower for normal operation.
 Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Where can i fine manual for engine replacement


TO REMOVE THE PULLEY FROM THE CRANKSHAFT END:

Remove the blade belt and, if needed, the deck to give yourself more room to work. Apply your brake pedal and lock it down, this will relieve the tension on the ground drive belt.
If you have an electric blade clutch, find the plug where the wire goes over from the clutch to the frame and unplug it.(Electric clutch will be heavy when unbolted so be ready for it.)
In the center of the pulley or blade clutch you will find a long bolt (most likely a 5/8 head on it) You may need a deep socket to reach it depending upon the type of stack pulley on it, remove this bolt and the pulley should slide freely on the crankshaft. slide it downward and slip off the belt on the top of the pulley then remove the pulley the rest of the way
