The blade is bent,replace it or you will ruin the engine,a new blade is much cheaper than a re-built engine and bearings,you bent it soooooo bad you can no longer even balance it, and if you continue it will destroy the engine if you have not done so already,this is the vibration you feel NOW

Did you bend the crankshaft. To check this out remove spark plug wire and tip mower on it's side and turn blade by hand and watch the shaft the blade is fastened on to. There should be no wiggle motion what so ever and if there is it may be bent causing the engine to not operate properly.

The blades on this cub cadet are activated with air pressure. Chances are that when you hit that stump, you either blew a fuse or the control module that allows the blades to spin. Begin by checking the fuses. J.

Oooh boy, I know you bent the shaft, but why it is blowing oil out the carb, I don't know if I would even bother with the blade, you could go buy the same mower, then you would have some parts. Unless you just bumped it hard enough to throw oil around in there, it might settle down, but it is a long shot. I hit a stump once and bent the crank, it was lights out for that mower. Hope this helps.

I hit something with , when i start the lawnmovers it goes crazy


The vibration is caused by a bent blade and/or a bent crankshaft. The first thing to do is to replace the blade to see if the vibration goes away. If it does not then you have a bent crankshaft. The higher rpm's is not normal but is probably caused by a timing problem caused by a sheared or partially sheared flywheel key.
