Bracket clutch anti-rotation

My Husqvarna 48" Mower (YTH238) is two years old, and I decided to sharpen blades and do an overall clean-up (oil and all filters) while taking the deck off for cleaning and blade sharpening. For some reason (which I am clueless!), I removed the bracket clutch anti-rotation. When reassembling the deck to tractor, I did not replace this part before starting the mower (did not see it on garage floor). I started the mower, drove up my driveway and engaged the blades. They would not engage, and I could tell the mower was about to shut off. I immediately disengaged the blades and the mower kept running. I drove back down the driveway and attempted to engage the blades again. The same thing happened, and this time the mower shut down. When I attempted to restart the mower with blades disengaged...nothing. Engine would not turn over. I discovered the missing part and reinstalled it on the mower. I ttempted to start the mower and still nothing. Can I repair this? Or do I have to take to a Husqvarna dealer?

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.

SOURCE: When I engage the mower blades, the tractor tries to stall

Besides the reverse switch, the seat switch will also cause this.

When beginning to move, the yth2348 mower clutch spins and cuts the green wires in two.


There should be an anti rotation bracket on the side of the chassis too stop the whole clutch from turning, only the bottom half of the clutch should spin. There are cut a ways in the clutch hub that the bracket sits into.

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.

I too have had that same problem. I found that "old" blades when repeatidly sharpened and worn will cause the same problem, also aftermarket blades instead of original manufactures recommended blades may not be dimensionally correct, too short. I have had to go back to using original blades to correct the problem.
This should work for you.
Good luck.

The mower starts but the blade switch won't conect yth1542xp


Husqvarna uses an electronic clutch to engage the mower deck. When the clutch works itself out of adjustment it will quit working. Sometimes it will blow the 20 fuse and the tractor will continue to run, but the blade won't engage. When you then shut off the tractor it won't crank again until you replace the fuse. When you attempt to engage the blades again, the fuse will blow again.

Follow this link for a detailed description of the adjustment process:

Blades will not engage on Husqvarna riding mower.


Could be a broken belt, loose belt (stretched) or something is under the mower deck jamming the blades. (stick for an example)

Ajusting mower deck on husqvarva lawntractor been trying to make it level,has two cutting blades and this mower is not very old bought it last summer,


I think the two bladed units are 42" and down in size. The 48" are 3 bladed units. There are instructions in the manual for leveling the cut. If you do not have a manual, look on line for a manual, google it. First step is to get the mower sitting on a level piece of concrete. That way you know which corner needs to be raised or lowered. Then make sure your blades are mounted correctly. Usually you can see the adjusters, threaded bolts and nuts, or pins. Usually the deck comes level and gets **** up by someone taking the deck off to swap or sharpen blades.

Having a hard time to fill the bag and almost not cutting grass


Well it could be your blade on the mower, over the years i have had to profect my blade sharpening skills.

sometimes when a blade is shapened its not done correctly causeing a lack in the blade tossing the grass properly and more or less turning into mulch on the lawn.

You should have your blades on a push mower if used once a week through out the season sharpened once a season then

if you have large amounts of rocks, sticks and pinecombs then 2x a year

if you only use it here and there then ushally ever 2 years is good.


another issue could be the engine bogging down when going over heavy or wet grass. this is no fun..

what I do with my lawn mower is clean the bottom and spray it with PAM cooking spray has been far the best solution, spraying the bottom of the deck and blade.

Now saying that if you try this method then remember no wet grass so dont over water your lawn.

some people like to use POR 15 on the under side of their mowers as well but I havent tryed this yet but hear it works great.

so there is ways to prevent slow and no discharge into the grass catcher.

hope this helps but yes I would say clean the underside of your mower and have you blade sharpened by a professional. dosent cost much and so much more worth it.
