Question about Cub Cadet Street Sign- tractor lawn riding mower parts

1 Answer

I have an LT1050 Cub Cadet. It cranks but never starts. I did not use it since August and it might be the water in the carb now. I can't find the diagram and want to know if you might know where to find the carburetor or have a diagram or photo. Thanks, Rich

The carburetor is located on the LH side of the engine, while you are sitting on the seat. It is behind the air filter. you will want to remove the fuel line and plug it at the carburetor, then remove the float bowl to examine/look for water and corrosion. be careful not to spray carburetor cleaner in the bowl or on the carburetor with out first removing the bowl gasket (black o-ring), and set it aside. Otherwise the carb cleaner will cause the o;ring to expand, and it wont fit upon reassembly. The main jet on the bottom of the pickup tube must be open, otherwise the fuel can't be drawn out of the float bowl. Before reconecting the fuel line, Run some fuel into a bucket and check for good fuel flow and water, let it run for about 30 to 45 seconds then plug the line again. The water will sink to the bottom and pool together, it will look like a "Blob" under the gasoline. If it is old fuel, you would be better off to drain all of the fuel and add new.

Hope this helps

Cub Cadet LT1050-Replaced the solenoid, had starter checked out-it's good, battery has full charge, but mower won't start. Help!!


You need to check that there is a 12volt supply from the low tention wire at the solinoid when the key is turned, if there is not either the switch is bad, or the wire from the switch is bad, or the fuse has blown.
