Question about Cub Cadet Op's Manual Model Lt1042 Lt1045 Lt1046 Lt1050

Open Question

Cub cadet lt1045. 1.Do the valves in front of the engine need to be coordianted a certain way, as far as being loose to the touch, or firmly held in place? Also if I need to adjust them what tool should I use. 2. Before I place a new gasket inbetween the valve cover, do I need to put a bit of oil around the outer rim? Also, will a new one on there stop small amounts of oil from leaking out. Thank you!!!

First, check the level of the hydraulic fluid (usually the dipstick is right inside the fill cap, and you just raise the seat to access it). If it's low, fill 'er up with the right fluid.

If that's OK, test if the lack of 'pull' affects the left wheel in both forward and reverse -- try going up a hill forward, and backing up it in reverse. If it affects both directions, maybe you will be lucky -- the problem could be that the bypass for the left hydraulic motor has opened somehow. (The bypass is used to let you push the mower by hand in case of an engine failure, etc.) So look for a fat-headed bolt sticking out of the left hydraulic motor. Check that it's tight -- rotate it just like you would tighten a bolt, clockwise. If it wasn't tight, that may be the problem; just tighten it and try the mower.

If this doesn't resolve it, you probably have a problem in the hydraulic valves, hoses, or motor, and a trip to the dealer is needed. Probably won't be cheap, sorry my friend. Good luck, and please rate if this was helpful, thanks!

SOURCE: I own a Cub Cadet Hydrostatic Lawn Tractor, not

Hello, W/D here.
Without a particular model number, I'll have to be somewhat generic, so forgive me in advance.
The fact that the mower will run and the blades will engage is good news; it eliminates about half of the things that would need to be checked.
Look for a lever at the (usually) back of the tractor, on the back plate, down low. Sometimes called a range selector or a disengagement lever. Normally, the position of this rod is "IN". If it has pulled towards the "OUT" position, the transmission is disengaged. Usually this rod is pulled out when you want to push the mower, and I expect you're tired of that by now! Chech and see if this is the issue, and post back if not.
Regards, --W/D--

Cub cadet lt 1042


Some of those cadets (like those with the Command 20) have a compression release mechanism on the cam which is intended to make that engine crank easier but disengages once the engine fires up. It's a plastic part and is prone to break, resulting in a lot of strain on the starter motor. Interesting design, bad materials. Sometimes the engine will start anyway but this is not a good idea to operate this way. Pull the valve cover. Look at the motion of the exhaust valve when you turn the engine by hand. It will look similar to the motion of the intake valve if this part is broken. If it's working correctly, you should see the exhaust valve open slightly just after the intake valve closes. I'll attach a video to show what it looks like. Replacing the bad cam is a bit of work but not terrible.

My son was mowing, with our cub cadet 2166, and ran the left front tire into a fence and now the steering wheel wont work. You can turn it and it feels really loose but it isn't connecting to the


Check the two main gears. One at the end of the steering shaft and the other that it contacts. Some brands are adjustable where the large gear is held on by a bolt and an excentric which allows you to move the large gear closer to the smaller gear. This may have been knocked out of place or the gear(s) stripped. Here is a basic diagram of the parts.
