What you might have to do is put a bit stronger spring on the idler pulley system, I have seen this problem a fair bit on this model.

How can I adjust the transmission linkage on a Husqvarna riding mower model LTH145 product # 954-14-00-06?

The Hydro-Gear transmission in this model tractor does not have an adjustment capability. You can either bend or straighten the actuating rod to adjust it in small amounts. However, with no reverse or forward the transmission may be bad. Check the v-belt first. Replace the v-belt if loose or worn. Otherwise you are probably needing a transmission.

21 hp,46" deck---What could be wrong?

A battery can read great, but is truly bad. You need to load test the battery to be sure. I get a new battery at the start of every third year on my lawn tractor whether it needs it or not. Sometimes the new ones are bad too.

Craftsman riding mower Model 917.270824

I do not believe there is a manual available to the public for troubleshooting, however, you have at least 3 switches to tell the mower to stop when blades are engaged or clutch pedal released.

Seat switch
pedal switch
mower engage switch

The pedal and mower lever switches are identical, and have two sides, one for starting, one for blades turning. One side can fail. The pedal switch is on the frame very close to the pivot point of the pedal/shaft. The mower switch will be under the dash close to the bottom of the lever.

1) Locate and inspect the switches for broken or pinch wires, switch housing, or loose mounting, and how each lever or pedal engages the swtich.

2) This is a picture of the wiring so that you can get a better idea of location.

Without knowing the model, or type of transmission, I can only suggest checking your owners manual.
