Question about Garden
Battery is OK but when I turn on the ignition key. It's dead and does not start. Blades are disengaged.
You didn't say it is not cranking but I assume its not. My Husqvarna has an inline fuse in the wiring harness when I found it it was blown I replaced it and was on my way

Check all the wiring connections on the starting system. Start at the battery. Both posts. Then, check where the ground goes to the body of the tractor. Make sure it's not rusty and making a good connection. Check the wire from the battery to the solenoid. If worse comes to worse, you can take a jumper cable and go from the battery + side and jump right to the starter post where an electrical cable connects. This will let the engine turn over, but make sure you have the mower in neutral and brakes set, with blades OFF!

SOURCE: I have a 17.5 HP Briggs and Stratton engine on a Yard Machines MTD riding mower. Starts fine and runs fine for about 10-15 minutes with blades engaged and then begins to sputter and die. I must keep
Hi, check that the fuel cap is venting and check the valve clearances. Regards Phil.

My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem. You said that the "Pulley" is loose when the blades are disengaged. I hope you meant that the belt is loose, because the pulley should never be loose. If it is loose, you should remove the pulley and make sure the KEY inside the center hole is still ok. Sometimes when the pulley gets loose it chews up the KEY and allows the pulley to turn on the crank. If the KEY is ok, just reinstall the pulley and tighten it.
I believe that your belt is probably just stretched and worn. The mower deck belt gets it's tension from lowering the mower deck. the lower the deck the tighter the belt. Just replace the belt. I hope I've helped! Thank you! Dane
