Cub cadet i1046 riding tractor with Koehler Courage 20 engine. Would crank but not start. Used starter fluid ran when spraying that in carb. Drained some fuel to see if water had gotten in tank. It turned over briefly on first attempt. Now I don't get a sound when turning the key. Very confused.

Have you checked the ignition fuse? Battery connections? With nothing from key, the fuse is likley blown, get it cranking again, then check for fuel at the carburetor inlet line.
