This would most likely indicate an air leak in the intake tract. Another possibility would be a partially clogged main jet in the carb. Either problem results in a lean running engine with VERY high exhaust temps. Bad news if not corrected.

This usually means that is's been overfilled with oil, or the engine has been tipped enough for oil to run into the cylinder. Drain oil if it's above the line at all, and the problem will go away once the oil's burned out of the cylinder.

SOURCE: my cub cadet tank stops running 5-20 minuts after

Yes you may need a carb kit. It is not good practice to by-pass the fuel filter. The orifice in the jet is very small.
But anyways, There Could still be a blockage inside the carb, a small leak at the manifold, or the jet is worn out.
Let me know how it goes.

Cub cadet runs fine until I start the PTO, then it stutters and dies. If I shut off the PTO blade, it will pick back up and run again


I had a similar problem with my cub Cadet. It turned out that the Ignition Module on the engine was cracked. Motor started OK - but died as soon as a load (such as engaging the mower) was put on it.

These are not terribly hard to check, and/or change, yourself. Easy to get to once the motor shroud is removed.

My 25 HP Kohler engine has 2 modules. EXPENSIVE from the dealer - found MUCH better prices online.
