Husqvarna 2042 deck problems
I have a Husq 2042 rider. Its been a good mower overall, but last year I had a bearing seize up on the outside blade casing. I replaced both bearings and spindle.
As soon as I engaged the blades, it started smoking from underneath and I found that one of the new bearings had seized again. I replaced the bearings and bought a whole new assembly for the other side (casing with spindle and bearings already installed)
I got about 5 cuts out of it (1/2 acre) and noticed while driving a vibration from the deck. To assure it was from the deck I disengaged the blades and reengaged them. It immediately choked the engine down. Jacked it up and another bearing looks to be gone. Any ideas?
Also after it choked the engine down, I disengaged the blades, put into N and the starter won't even click....guess thats another problem though.
