SOURCE: cub cadet dead as a door nail

I have the same mower. The wires do need to be connected. It is a safety feature on the cubs. The engine will not start if the electric PTO is engaged. I just went into the garage, pulled the pto lever out to engage, pushed down brake, tried to start and it would not start. I suggest reattatching the wires and trying it. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Honda HT4213 lawn tractor, it does not have any spark.

Flywheel and ignition coil are located on the rear of this engine. Remove covers as needed to reach the ignition coil. There are two (2) High-Tension leads (to the spark plugs) and one (1) small-guage wire.
The smaller guage wire is the engine's "Kill Circuit" trigger-wire. Everything electrical that makes the engine stop running comes back to this wire. Unplug it and check for spark with a spark tester.
SEE NOTE BELOW
If no spark, replace the coil. Part number 30500-ZA0-701.
If good spark, continue your wiring checks, possibly the control relay part number 38350-762-003 located roughly in the left rear of the engine bay.

NOTE: DO NOT START the engine with this kill-wire unplugged! There will be no way to turn it off until it runs out of fuel! Remove the spark plugs and use a spark tester and above all, BE SAFE!

Hope this helps,
Dolf-

SOURCE: I have a LT 1024

There should be 3 safety switches on the mower. 1 will be under the seat, causing the engine to die if you were to fall off the machine while in gear. 1 is in the transmission to be sure the machine is in neutral when you go to start it, and one will be on the blades to insure they are not engaged when you go to start it. You will not want to bypass this switch, rather get it replaced as it is very important that this safety feature is working should you slip off the seat or accidentally get off the machine when it's in gear.

SOURCE: My Cub cadet pto cluch bearing is froze up on my 2518 lawn tracto

A medium length extension (stuck through the grill), a swivel and an impact is all you need to remove the pulley with the frozen bearing. It's just a bolt, a washer, and a lock washer holding it on. You just need to remove the pulley to see if the bearing is stuck. Take the pulley to your local shop that can press bearings and you can be up and running for $20 dollars instead of $300. Here's a diagram I found on partstree:

SOURCE: old snapper riding lawn mower with the handlebars

Usually the drive disc . Look under mower at rear, you will see a wheel with rubber ring on outside diameter. I think, it is four small bolts holding it on. Take off and replace, will usually solve problem.

My snapper yard cruiser Lou runs drives turns left right but when I pull the PTO switch the blades will not engage it's a snapper z yard cruiser with kohler engine


There are limit and safety switches in the wiring circuit. When it registers a back-up it disables the blades or turns the engine off. Find the backing switch and try to temporary bypass it

Snapper Lawn tractor will not start


Check your valve adjustment. Valves can be safely set at .004 for both intake and exhaust. Give this a try and see what happens. I would be interested in how you make out. GOOD LUCK FREIND.

I have an LT series Snapper rider with 20 hp and 44" cut. The transmission seems to be slipping. I have not checked the oil. Replacing the belt looks like a big job.


Not as some John Deere mowers I worked on lately.

I am assuming your is the Hydro version with electric pto. First set the parking brake as this remove tension on the belt.

You will need to remove the pto clutch and attention to the keys are positioned as they are one way keys. When reinstalling the PTO clutch it torqued to 55 ft lbs. To do this you need to remove the engine shroud so can block the flywheel movement.

The rest of the belt removal and replacement is fairly straight forward.

Only after i got stuck in mud did blades on snapper lt 200 42 rider so working belts are tight must be sensor insert seat went out or went bad


Blades would not turn after I got stuck in mud. Electric clutch?

  • Turn the engine off and remove the key.
  • Check for physical damage; anything look bent?
  • Spin the pulley on the bottom of the clutch. Does it spin freely?
  • There could be mud or grit stuck in the clutch.
  • There is a drive key between the clutch and the shaft. Has this key been sheared? It's possible the clutch was burnt out during the mud incidence.
PTO Clutch will not engage or stay engaged.
There is a very fine discussion on evaluating electric clutches at this site:
http://www.messicks.com/Articles/FixingElectricClutch.aspx

My JD tech manual, which covers the entire LA 100 series, agrees with the electrical specifications. It states that the Electric PTO Clutch should show the following:
  • Resistance 3.7 ohms
  • Current Draw 3.25 amps.
  • It does not give the air gap.
It does include a note to check the PTO Clutch Key for damage or if missing. So there is a drive key between the PTO Clutch and the shaft. Additionally, it recommends checking the tightness of the cap screw. That's the screw or bolt that holds the clutch on the shaft.
  • Cap Screw torque 55 lb-ft (75 N.m).

Snapper LT 200 20HP is only a year old and only keeps a battery charge for 3-4 days. We changed the battery and still have the issue. I have confirmed that the key has not been left on. It appears that...


The charging system could do this Take the hot wire off the starter and set for a while and see if battery runs down. Then you know what area to look. If there is a separate wire on your charging system take it off and see if that looses power. Try trial and error Its cheaper that way.
