Customer Question

My Cub Cadet 1554 gt will not start. fuel to engine is ok. engine will crank and has spark. Will not start. Could it be the fuse under the steering wheel or another fuse somewhere else?

Is the fuel solnoid in the carburetor clicking open when the key is turned on? It plugs the main jet in the carburetor, and if it does not open, no fuel will get to the cylinders. If you have spark, will engine run if you put fuel direct into the carb or the spark plug hole?
