SOURCE: 2160 cub cadet that wont 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....

just trace the spark plug wire to the coil but you can check the spark by putting a new plug in the wire and make sure it is grounded and turn the engine over if you have spark then you have to pull the fly wheel off and check the fly wheel key

SOURCE: My 2166 Cub Cadet pops and backfires at high rpm.

try replacing the air filter first or check it with the filter off, you may only need a new filter. if not get a mower or bike shop to test the coil they will let you which one to buy

SOURCE: my cub cadet tank stops running 5-20 minuts after

Yes you may need a carb kit. It is not good practice to by-pass the fuel filter. The orifice in the jet is very small.
But anyways, There Could still be a blockage inside the carb, a small leak at the manifold, or the jet is worn out.
Let me know how it goes.

Why wont my 12.5 hp kohler engine not run full throttle and loss of power

it sounds like your carb is gummed up. You can TRY something called SEA FOAM (you can get it from Napa), you put it in your gas tank. It's the poor man's tune-up. Otherwise, you can get some spray carb cleaner and pull off your air cleaner and spray it in there. Hope that helps.

Hello I have Cub Cadet LTX 1050 VT Sv720 23 HPEngine Kohler

This situation is just a clogged fuel line IN the tank. It happens. Yeah, stuff that gets In builds up in the line an elbow and plugs it up. Just pull the connection out of the tank and clean it out. I have even found plastic bits clogging the line on mine. I have a LT 1050 also. And a Cub ZT I just love.
