I'll give ya $50 for the tires off of it lol
2008 by the model number.Found a manual for it on husqvarnas site.
Actually I could really use the front tires and rims if you decide to part it out.

Nice looking lawn tractor. Should not be to hard to get it operational as your over half way there already. Lot of them around so finding a deck should not be to hard. Get it all up and going good and flip it. With all the rain old mowers will be dieing off and people looking maybe ? ?

Well today found another but lighter model. Looks like dash/hood, most of body all same as mine. Wire harness and switches laid out same. Come with the electric pto AND, the 48" deck from it and another 54" deck like mine is supposed to have. Thinking even frame is same. The wheels are smaller and the rear-end is shot. This is what I hear about many of those. OH, and standard muffler. Had a Briggs 23hp V-twin in this one, he used in another brand tractor. BUT, he still wants $200 for what is left. Thinking hard on it, might get, it's only Money! Sold two tractors today, so can buy some more stuff, heh! It's a model YTH-2348. Y must mean yard tractor, where as mine is a GTH or Garden tractor I suppose. Think if I compared parts, maybe can see if same part numbers for harness and some other items.
Looked at manuals and part numbers, thanks guys for the leads on looking at those. All in the wording on search I guess! The link was direct also. Seems the hood and dash area same parts, the wire harness same. The frame looks same in pictures, but is slightly diff numbers, but that might just be a bolt hole or cut-out diff or such, or maybe length, but don't think that. Looks like should get.

Well, Husky #2 is on the bench/lift now, Simple tractor is off and running around. This thing has some sort of attachment on back, maybe for a bagger?? I took pix of it as I took it off. Some numbers on it in pix, or have list if can't see, I'll check. Was gonna lift off the rear body section, but need ALL the steering wheel, dash, tower off to get it off. SO, it's all coming apart anyway. Had to quit for the day. Here's the attachment.
Is HOP for Husqvarna Outdoor Products? They based in GA?

Got the engine all in and wired up. Couldn't get a crank with key tho. Sat on seat, pushed the manual safety button by hand, pedal down, nothing. Now see on info the pedal needs to stay up! Tried that and pulled back even, no go. SO, looking at safety switch down there, see it does not get pressed by linkage. Not sure what is supposed to press yet, but is not hitting. Pedal don't seem like it is gonna come back much more to reach?? I pushed that switch and all others and weight on seat, and Bingo, engine cranks! So THAT switch is the issue. I could use two jumper wires there and on manual one to pass, but not sure I want to on the pedal one. Jumpers should work, there is not electric control box on this tractor to mess up. Hard to see in that area, plates on top and bottom side with the tensioners and steering links all mounted in them. Oh, joy!

Well, got the drive belt hooked up, bypassed the wiring a bit to start and find trans-axle is a NO GO! $%^&! I can get it to turn forward on one side if I don't go all the way with pedal. Other side won't move, but if I hold the moving side, Then it moves on that side. This is on a bench, no wheels. Have not tried with wheels touching ground. Seems reverse was nothing at first, then started to get a little action on one side of it moving. All this tractor's linkages are kinda rusty and have been hitting with oils and PB blaster, see if move better. First time forgot to let free the un-lock wire on back for pushing. Was SO wishing letting that back in was gonna work, but NOT! I have not played with the actual lever that wire pulls to see if diff. The darn hubs are slip on kind, but on inner side is stack of three washers on each side and then some sort of square thing next to the axle housing. All seems real tight and rusted! I'm wondering if binding right there? I have those hubs soaking, don't seem to want to move after pulling outer clip and washers on axle. Key in them too. Seem to be rusted pretty good. Soaking now in PB. I tried a three arm puller, but just wanted to bend the metal hub. It is not a cast part. Banged around a bit with plastic and steel hammers, nothing is moving off those axles.

Looks like you are making good progress. Good luck with it.
I had an LGT 2554, was a good tractor, nice ride and comfortable seating, until the axle broke, sheared off on the inboard side of the key on the right side as you are sitting on the tractor. I never did think much of the transaxle they put on those lower end machines. I would have thought they would put a bigger one on the bigger machines. Once it warmed up it got a little slower in forward and just crawled in reverse. Mine had 600 hrs. on it, the Kohler Courage ran well and started right up. I've since gotten rid of it, a project for someone else to worry about. I could have repaired it, saw an axle replacement kit for $200 but don't have the time to mess with it.
Got a JD GT275 I had sitting up and running, just takes a little longer to mow with the 48" deck on the JD vs. the 54" on the Husqvarna. Really like the transaxle on the JD, it's a true garden tractor transmission and never slows down.
