Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
18hp intec engine husky mower
It sounds as though you may have a sheared flywheel key. The keys are made of aluminum and shear easily if the flywheel is not tight. Remove top cover and flywheel retaining bolt/nut. Examine key for location with slot in crankshaft. If sheared, orient the flywheel slot and crankshaft slot so that a new key fits. Be sure flywheel and crankshaft mounting surfaces are clean and free of oil/grease. Tighten crankshaft retaining bolt/nut to 90 ft lbs. Flywheel posisition is maintained by friction between it and crankshaft.

The best advice here is to put your battery on charge, and, while it is charging, remove each connection, and clean the terminals back to "bright and shiney". The clicking noise is probably the solenoid trying to pull in to provide power to the starter. There also sounds like the comnnection to the starter needs to be removed and cleaned. If this connection is dirty or loose, it can arc and smoke without cranking. Also, if the terminals at your solenoid are corroded, the motor cannot recharge the battery on the run, and loss of power to the battery will result. Clean your connections, and try again!
This should correct your issues. In extreme conditions, it may be necessary to replace your wire from the solenoid to the starter, if it is significantly deteriorated, but I'd clean it all up first.
Best regards, --W/D--

I have had this problem for the longest time. I replaced the secondary gear twice. Helped for a brief period and now won't turn left again. Replaced the steering shaft and worked for a brief period. Back to no left turns once again. The issue is with the secondary gear and bearings (plastic) which is only a temporary fix. What I had done was welded a piece of steel to the bottom of the steering shaft eliminating the secondary gear connecting directly to the tie rod for the steering. Works perfect now.
