Question about Cub Cadet Garden

Open Question

I have a cub cadet AGS 2160. Recently the breather tube had managed to become detatched from the air cleaner houseing. When this happened oil began to leak from the tube. I replaced the breather tube which seemed to solve the issue. However now oil is leaking at an alarming rate from the base of the breather tube when the mower is running. What could cause this and how can I make it stop?

Yes, there is a switch on the motion lever on the transmission, but there is also a relay switch that is taped to the fuse under the hood of the mower...if this goes bad, the deck will not come on

Cub cadet 1440 oil all over engine, in carb, and plugs come out black with oil all over them

Is it coming from the Breather hose? try taking out the air filter and see if that stops it. If air filter is clogged , it will cause Crank Pressure.
Also check oil level if too high it will do this. Sometimes the carb will let gas past and into crankcase filling teh crankcase above 'Full' mark

Breather tube throwing oil into carb

Oil coming via the engine breather can mean a worn engine, it could be as simple as an over filled sump, or the breather valve itself is not working, the breather valve allows the crankcase pressure out of the engine.

Check your crankcase breather (on side of block) . It could need cleaning/replacing and is loaded with oil/sludge causing this excessive blow-by to occur. Also check the tube running from the breather to the air filter housing. Make sure it is clean and clear.

2160 cub cadet that wont spark to the plugs

You've solved for some of the equation. Spark. Fuel. Air.....all in the proper sequence. Now, what condition are the plugs ? I'd change them out if they have any wetness to them. Check your fuses as well. Another thing is the 'safety switches' - located in seat, on parking brake, etc. One of these could have come undone or gone bad/loose wire. I'm thinking the latter....
