The blades themselves don't really matter. If the hood has a safety switch, then all you need to do is bypass it with a jumper wire. Other than that, you should be all set.

My troybilt rider tb2246 cut off when I engage the blades and now it cuts off when I take my foot off brake. What's wrong? Heeeeelp

You likely have a bad seat (operator presence) switch. If you unplug the switch under the seat & jumper the terminals to the wiring harness and the mower runs, you'll need to replace the switch.

Bracket clutch anti-rotation

Without the anti-rotation arm installed when you engaged the PTO the clutch spun and probably ripped out the wires connecting it to the harness. This can be repaired but is tricky. If you have a Husqvarna dealer close by, it will save you several hours of labor to have them correct the problem.

Wekjo Think I need to replace the fuse in my Husqvarna Model yth2146, 960450026. Ive followed all the wires coming fom the ignition harnes, but cant find anuything thats looks like a 20 amp fuse. Do y

a 20 amp fuse should be yellow they use a blade fuse so it will be flat about a 3/4 long and about a 1/4 wide after repairing the wires place drier sheets around the wires this will keep them from being around as much you should also remove the top cover from the engine and inspect under there for a nest and chewed wires as well

It sounds like your mower is equipped with a reverse safety switch. This switch will prevent you from mowing in reverse by killing the engine, like any safety switch. You just need to investigate it and decide if you will disengage the blades to back up or if you will disable the safety switch. You mentioned that there were wires cut. Do you know what they were? How many were cut? I suggest that you trace them out to see what they are, where they go. The previous owner may not have wanted to deal with the safeties for a number of reasons.

In regards to the reverse safety switch, many mowers do not have them. As in they do not come on all mowers, historically. I do not know if they are designed into all the newer ones or not. I work on older mowers and whether or not they are on a mower seams to depend on the manufacturer (on older mowers). My seven or eight year old Craftsman does not have one, while a twelve year old MTD may.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Vibrations when the cutting head is lowered . Sounds like one of the blades is hitting the cover. Especially noticeable below a setting of 5. Three cutting blades. There is no noticeable loss of cutting...

Sounds like a bent blade to me. Can you determine where or which side the noise is coming from? For safety, I would replace all the blades. I once ran over my son's baseball while mowing and bent the housing and that caused the blade to hit the side of the deck. I simply bent the housing back with a few hits of a hammer and back to mowing I went.
