Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
SOURCE: Lawn Mower won't start
Its a thing of beauty to see problems solve themselves. It seems to me this trial and error approach is very taxing and could have been avoided if 1, your small engine repair guy/Craftsman/Sears had sold you the right parts from the start, or 2, you had bought the right part... from the start.

What method are you jump starting? Are you putting clamps from jump battery on the posts of the battery or grounding the jump battery and then touching the + cable to the starter terminal?

did you try depressing the clutch to disengage everything regardless of being in neutral? and it sounds like a pulley bearing went bad.try to spin the pulley with your hand and see if it moves.take the belt off to the mower deck and that should keep them from turning when you go to start it.
