    Read the second thread in this forum then post back please. Sounds like ignition coils, you cant get fire to either of the plugs or just one? More information please.

    the lawn mower is an ENCORE PROWLER D61FC and the engine is a kawasaki code FD750D-AS00-01 E/No FD750D019214 27HP water cooled only has 153 hours, I can't get power to either one of the spark plugs, while it is possible that the coils may be bad I think that is highly unlikly that both go bad at the same time, how can I test them and if they are ok what would be the next step to check?

    Do the safety switches like the parking brake on a Encore stop the spark or something else? I know the blade and seat safety switches will not allow any bit of start when they are open, but the parking brake on my Encore allows the motor to turn over but not start.

    Papaalex: If the parking brake is applied on my Encore, it will NOT start. It will turn over though.
