  • Hi I'm Peter, there should be an on /off switch you need to put in the start position then you can pull start it. You will also use this same switch to turn it off.Make sure you have it in neutral also before you try to start or stop it. I am assuming you have fuel in it and oil so if you have done all of these things and it still won't start then you may want to check your gas to see if there is any water in it. Replace the plug, If the tiller has been sitting out in the weather you may have to pull the cover off and use a wire brush or sandpaper to clean the rust off the flywheel and coil. If you have to take the coil off to clean the contact points then use a 3x5 index card to put between the flywheel and the coil when you install the coil. The Magnet will pull the coil and flywheel together and the 3x5 card will give you the approximate clearence between the coil and flywheel Tighten the two small screws that hold the coil on and rotate the flywheel and pull the 3x5 card ( or you could use a business card ) out. Don't worry if you tear the card it's done it's job. LOL If it won't start after all of that you may want to verify you have fuel getting to the carb and spark to the plug. If nothing the it may be time for a carb rebuild . The worse thing you can do is leave gas in an engine then let it set for a few months as the gas will evaporate and leave a sticky sludge in the carb. You could try some carb cleaner before you tear into or pay someoneone to rebuild the carb but hopefully you've already gotten it going by now. Peter

I need to know what brand and type of oil to put in my cub cadet rt 65 tiller


As 1st option,It would be best to call the manufacturer Cub Cadet,or their Authorized Repair Center,and ask them directly.
Refer to the manual that came with the tiller.

As 2nd option, a general small engine repair shop can be helpful too.

Have a nice day.

Oil drain location on cub cadet rt65


How old is it? Lots of newer small engines don't have a drain plug. You tilt it on its side and let the oil run out the oil filler hole after removing the dip stick. I put a piece of plastic shopping bag over the gas tank hole and put gas cap back on to help keep gas from coming out. Good luck.

Cub cadet model 1520 won't start.


Sounds to me like you might be having a problem with either your key switch, or more likely your starter. Although I have never had a starter go out on any riding mower Ive ever had, thats really what is sounds like. On the other hand, I have had many a key switch go bad and they act alot like your symptoms. So I would start at the simplest and work backwards.

Also, make sure blades are disengaged and also they are not bound up on the underside of the mower deck. also check the belt and its not in a bind. These thing could be dragging down your motor keeping it from starting. Let me know if I can help further. Have a Great Day! Good Luck!
