Check that the choke and throttle adjustment are synced correctly. It sounds like what happens when the choke is coming on too early in the throttle application (choke applied when in the non choke full throttle start detention). I don't have the exact method without looking it up....something like this-a pin goes through a hole in the throttle bracket to line up the throttle and choke together while you make the cable adjustment. Your engine manual should give the procedure. If that doesn't take care of it then suspect worn needle and seat on the carburetor.Hope this helped Tim

2008 cub cadet rzt 50 run for 20 min than dies while mowing put new pump on, new fuel filter, new air cleaner, new plugs. has a 22hp kawasaki engine. fuel lines clear

When it stalls out did you check the spark? I suspect the engine is losing spark due to an ignition system failure.

got to have fuel, spark, air and compression. your missing one. be sure plug is good. give it a shot of carburetor cleaner. if it starts and dies it is fuel. check compression. take off valve cover and be sure valves are working as they should and gaped correctly.

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run

Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

My 25hp kawasakie motor cranks but wont fire. tractor model 7252. ran perfect 2 days ago. parked it now this problem. where do i start to find problem?

All internal combustion engines need three things to operate (air, heat or spark, fuel). Check to see if you have all of these things, a clean air filter with a clear path to the carburetor, spark at the end of the plug wire (this can be checked by using a screwdriver inserted into the plug wire end and holding it close to a metal grounded surface), and fuel to the carburetor (check to see if you have fuel at the fuel line going into the carb or an easier test is to spray a small ammount of carb cleaner into the throat of the carb just before cranking, if it starts and runs you have a fuel supply problem then check backwards to find the blockage (pinched fuel line, plugged fuel filter, bad fuel pump ect).

If no spark at the plug wire check all connections at electrical terminals under hood and at switches for parking brake, belt engagment (PTO) ect..

Usually if something runs and then just dies suddenly there is an obvious problem, your powers of observation will help you the most. Look at anything that looks out of place.

Cub ztr 50'' with 22 hp Briggs. PROBLEM: Engine dies with or without deck engaged! I replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, plugs,and cleaned air filter. Could my problem be a (sometimes good / sometimes bad)...

Need more info...
When it dies, does it crank back up? if not, at this time, you could check for spark. If none, you might be on track with a fault in a switch.
But if you have spark and it doesn't crank,
check for condesation in the gas (carburator and fuel tank). If any, problem solved... drain and dry carb bowl and gas tank to insure all trace of water is out.
Hope this helps... Good luck!
