Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor 48" Deck, 23 Hp, Model# Yth2348
Check bearings on the mower, grease them if you can. Check the deck for packed in grass and gunk. Check where the deck gets the power from the engine, see if it needs grease or lube. Check jets on the carb if it has any, slowly turn it in (clockwise) until it is as fast as it goes, then back it off half a turn or so. If it doesn't get faster, turn it the other way til it gets to its peak, then back it off a little. Check the spark plug, it should be a light brown/light gray color. Make sure the gap is right on the plug also. Check the plug wire(s) for melted spots, if they are a few years old, probably just replace. Are you using fresh gas? The tank hasn't been the one from winter I hope. Make sure it is not mixed if it is not supposed to be. May have a blue tint if it is mixed. Check ground wires, and battery cables for tightness and corrosion. Hope this helps.

Might pull the plug and check for spark with that plug, possibly just fouled it out. If the engine spins maybe faster than normal, or an occasional pop or backfire, the flywheel key may have sheared.
is the radiator clear and free of debris.
If the problems going uphill began after your tune-up then it is most likely related to the fuel filter or air filter you used. If the tractor is not running badly or hot at any other times, the issue is not likely to be related to the spark plug you used.There are a couple different engines that might be in aYH2148, but some are pretty sensitive to any added restrictions from an incorrect air or fuel filter, so a universal or incorrect filter could be limiting overall horsepower which is showing up under the added load on hills.
You might want to try installing the recommended filters for your exact model to see if that improves matters. You can find the parts recommended for your particular model at theSears PartsDirect website.
If the problem was already present before your tune-up, then you might have an issue with the drive belt or brakes, either due to wear or mis adjustment. Or you might have an issue with the throttle/governor settings or even an issue with excess engine wear.
