Cub Cadet LT1052


I mowed yesterday and when i went to start my mower back up, the engine wouldn't turn over. It looks like the flywheel is not moving and it's making a weird sound, almost like a ringing, but not cranking.

Any ideas what this could be?

Re: Cub Cadet LT1052


Is there a flywheel inspection cover that you can remove?

Electric start?

Battery dead?

Battery post corrosion?

Try to move the flywheel by hand, if not moving = locked up.

Really need more data.

Re: Cub Cadet LT1052


so it looks like some of the gears on the flywheel ring are broken. I put a new starter in and it starts up much smoother, but is it ok to continue to use it with the broken flywheel ring gears broken off? I would think it's ok but wanted to check.

Re: Cub Cadet LT1052


Yes you can operate it with some of the starter ring teeth missing.

But eventually it will wear the starter Bendix teeth off.

And will eventually stop right at that spot, and the Bendix will have no teeth to start with, and you will need to turn the engine to where the Bendix will engage the starter ring to crank the engine .

Many old cars do this, and until the owner gets tired of replacing starters or repairing them, they finally get a new flywheel starter ring assembly.

Something looks really wrong to me in that picture, besides the missing teeth.
Looks like the rings no longer even attached to the flywheel to me.

If it doesn't start, spin the engine by hand until the teeth align with the Bendix drive. Sooner or later, you will have to replace the flywheel & the starter or the drive.

I also noticed that, at least it looked very strange.
