Hi, I have an 01 LX277, while mowing today I saw some smoke come from the PTO clutch area. I shut it off. When I tried to restart it, it cranks fine, at normal speed, but won't start. It will start briefly on starting fluid.
I inspected all the belts. All were replaced within 2 months, they all look great. They're not binding on anything and they are on their proper pulleys. Not sure why I saw smoke coming from there. Everything spins freely when I crank it.
I just checked for spark and cleaned the carb, everything looked/looks fine. I have air, fuel, and spark. Why is it not starting?
Motor and trans oil are at proper levels and are fresh
