2160 cub cadet that wont start.hot spark to the plugs
You’ve solved for some of the equation. Spark. Fuel. Air…..all in the proper sequence. Now, what condition are the plugs ? I’d change them out if they have any wetness to them. Check your fuses as well. Another thing is the ‘safety switches’ – located in seat, on parking brake, etc. One of these could have come undone or gone bad/loose wire. I’m thinking the latter….
I have a cub cadet 2165 I just put in a new battery and it is slow turning over any ideas?
If battery is good and everything is hooked up right. Most likely could be the pto clutch bearing. Not the bearing on the pulley but on the clutch inside. Had the same problem, took the spark plugs out got it free. Turned over easy with plugs out, Started right up after and then burned up my bearing. Don’t burn up bearing. If do field assy. For that is 200$ if you can get away with just that. Otherwise 350-400$ for full assy.
