SOURCE: cub cadet 1050 fuel problem

Hi again.

Ok before I go on you can download a free Kohler service manual for your engine here:

If you have removed the input fuel line just after the filter and there is still no gas it leads me to believe one of 3 things
1. That the fuel tank vent is not open
2. The fuel filter is clogged (100 hr replacement interval)
3. The fuel tank outlet has debris in it,
Have you removed the fuel hose before the fuel filter and checked for fuel flow?

The carb itself has a fuel shut off solenoid on the very bottom of the carb. You can try putting battery voltage on this solenoid and see if it starts normally. If it does then there is a problem with power to the solenoid some where between the ignition switch and the solenoid. ( I just doubt this is the problem because you can add gass to carb and it starts )

This carb also has 2 jets in the bowl area a slow jet located under a rubber plug and the main jet (center) The slow jet can be clogged but again this would usually result in the engine not idling.

From what I am reading per your statement: "I empty the gas filter that connected to the fuel container and I do not see that the gas filter is filled again with gas."

Every thing there is BEFORE the fuel pump. This still has me thinking
1 filter
2 tank outlet clog / restricted
3 fuel vent problem

Pull off the fuel line "after" the fuel filter and remove the fuel tank cap. If you get a gush of fuel you have a vent problem.

Lastly the fuel pump diaphram is pretty fragile. Hopefully you did not damage it when you blew air into the fuel line. (been there done that!)

For on line parts diagrams you can use this link: Left side of page middle of page
(drop down menus)
kohler engine
courage series
then select your model engine that ends in 0010 - 0032

Bottom line the problem appears to be before the engine from what I see.

Make sure air filter is clean or replaced. Check oil level. Change oil if not done this year. Remove plug, clean and gap. Ensure gasoline isn't over 30 days old and use a gas stabilizer if gas cap isn't marked E85.

How to replace drive belt on cub cadet 1050

Fairly easy to replace once the deck and the electric PTO are removed just make mental notes or rough of the belt path before removing the old belt. One thought if I remember correctly this uses 7/16" belt and a 1/2" width will not work due to the tight clearance at the engine pulley so stick with OEM belt.

Brand new ltx 1050 cub cadet kohler 24hp engine acts like it is running out of gas have changed gas 3 times still wont run more than afwe seconds

More than likely your carburetor has trash and stopped up and needs to be removed and cleaned. The reason it's doing that is because when you crank it the trash in the bottom of the bowl on your carburetor is shaken up and causes the obstruction and blocks the gas from going into the intake where it mixes with air and allowed to be sucked into the cylinders and ignited by the spark plugs. Hope this 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.
