Question about Stanley Garden
SOURCE: Deck may be bent?
On your problem it is diffiuct to say. I don't know how old it is and if it has been run hard in gravel or how many roots you hit. However if the blades hit it hard enough you may have hit the deck brackets. You need to get it no concrte so you can mesure the for corners of the deck on the level surface, then check which side and if it's front or back that is higher. Most likely the lowering arm Is what is bent where the lever you Drop the deck down with is, look tthere first. Also look at the top of the deck and side to side at the lawen mower and see if you can see if the deck is up higher on one spot more than anywhere else. . I know this is confuseing but hope you understand what I am saying. I would also check the front axle mesure the top o the axle on both sides are they even? Yes? then mesure from ground to top of the hood on the lawnmower. Good luck.

Park the tractor on a firm, level surface. . .
At the lower end of the lift/lower travel slot, there should be a plastic cover which you pop up so that your blade lift handle goes all the way down (it should say something about blade level on there somewhere. . . . .
After you have the handle in this position, look at the front lift arms of the mower deck and find the 2 large wing nuts, one on each side. . . . .
Loosen these while the deck is down and then retighten them Your deck is now level and will lift to its highest recommended position when you raise the lever

If you are looking to spend about $400 on a repair to a B&S engine you may want to buy a whole new motor instead. I had bent valve push rods, which is very common B&S problem. The parts cost me about $30.00, and a 6 pack to my handy-dandy neighbor to do the fine adjusting. Anyhow before finding the actual problem I was googling around and I was surprised at how cheaply you can buy a new engine. Does not seem to be much of a market for rebuild/exchange on these small engines.

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.

try pushing the blade up into the deck,,,if there is any lift in it there is the fault,,the top nut has come off the blabe drive pully and let the drive shaft drop a little this will lower the cutting blade,,,fix it before the blade falls right out
