I have a M01742S05 mower whose engine will turn over about

Customer Question

I have a M01742S05 mower whose engine will turn over about 90 degrees (or less), and then stop. I put in a new battery, cleaned the terminals, checked the cables; same thing.
It acts like there's excessive resistance. I can turn the engine slowly by hand, and the belts are not binding. I even tried jumping my pickup directly to the block and starter; no luck.
What next???
