    Maybe an interlock switch someplace, like a seat switch.
    Does it turn over?

    That's what im thinking..mower turns over fine,I checked the fuel system and I'm getting fuel to the carb..I also disassembled the card and cleaned it out then reassembled..

    I have spark

    And I also pulled the flywheel and the seer pin is fine cleaned everything up and reassembled ,still the mower just cranked away..the seat switch seems to be working ,the circuit is open until u sit or push the plunger and the switch is closed then..

    I think with a bad safety switch the engine will not even turn over, but not sure.

    If you have spark and fuel, the next thing to do is remove the valve cover and have a look. A common issue is the rocker arm stud backs out of the head and the push rod falls out.

    Well,your right ,it turned out to be a broken push rod...I should have it back tomorrow but it cost me 100 pickup n drop off 11.00 for push rod and 89.50 @ 4 hrs labor..total 500..I talked to john deere,the warranty is 2 yrsor 120 hrs,since the tractor is about 4 yrs old I hope they honor the hrs since I oly have 72 hrs on it
