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....

SOURCE: international cub cadet 1250 series wont start

This is definitely a timing problem.
Simply, it is either, too far advanced, or too far retarded.
The first thing I would check, would be the plug.
Clean it up if it's in need, and just check the gap.
If it's too tight, or too far open, that could explain it.
Otherwise, it will be the spacing on the magneto. Either open the gap, or close the it.
I hope that's cleared it up for you,
Good luck with that.

A safety switch may be preventing startup. Jumper out safety switches and see if it starts.

Check and see if it has an anti-backfire solenoid in the front of the carb.If it does and the solenoid has power then you need to replace it.

My rtz 50 will not start I have changed the fuel pump and filter it seems to not be pumping aany fuel. I have checked the fuel lines and can suck gas from the carburetor side of the pump thru.

Take a spray bottle and spray some fuel into the carb and see if it starts if so you have a fuel problem. If not you may not be getting fire to the plug. Check the plug and be sure it is gapped correctly and be sure you are getting fire through the plug wire.

Won't start without starting fluid

You might want to try using a carburetor cleaner additive, or a spray cleaner to clean the carb internally. Make sure your air filter is clean. You may also want to make sure fuel lines are not restricted.

LT 1550 stopped running and now turns over but wont start

You need to determine what caused it to stop. Is it fuel, carburetor problem or spark, coil problem, or compression, valve or piston problem.
Start by removing the plug, touch the metal on the side by the plug hole, keep fingers clear, turn motor over and look for a blue spark, if good, set plug aside and put your finger over the hole, turn engine ove and it should easily push your finger off by compression. If all, of these are good, you may have gunk in the carb, float stuck or other carb problem. You can also try starting fluid. spray a some at the intake of the carb, you might have to remove the air cleaner, try starting, if it then pops or fires, then it looks like a carb problem, starving gas.

Have you tried putting a little gas down into the carburetors throat ? If it starts then you'll know you're dealing with a fuel delivery problem. You claimed you have spark so I'm assuming that it's a good blue color, I think if it was me I would be pulling my flywheel off and checking to make sure it hasn't sheared or moved. If you were able to rule out the fuel delivery issue.

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run

Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

I don't think my tiller is getting any juice to the sparkplug. I changed the sparkplug and air filter, checked the oil and gas, but it still won't start.

disconnect the kill wire on the motor and then see if you get spark. If so its your switch, if not it either points or electronic coil or regular coil or condenser problem did you gap the pints correctly and was there a problem b4 you changed the points.
