Husqvarna tractor won't turn over

My Husqvarna YTH2348 won't turn over unless I back a spark plug out a couple turns. It turns over fine after I do this , and runs fine. It won't turn over if I jump-start it from my truck! Did battery, air filter, plugs look fine .
TNX,

What is the brand and engine model number for that tractor? If it is an OHV motor you may need to adjust the valve lash on it to ensure the compression release is working. If the compression release is not working the motor will turn but stop on the compression stroke. Is it doing that?

It's a Briggs & Stratton Intek, Model No. 445577 1187-B1 .
It does seem to make a 1/2 turn, then stops.
Do you know where can I find info about adjusting the valve lash?
Tnx for your reply!
