My Cub 1050 is acting up. The last couple of times I started it, it idled slow at first, but then came to life after a few seconds. Yesterday, when I started it, it idled slow and then when I increased the throttle to WOT, it was still running at a much lower rpm. Then, when I engaged the deck, it could barely spin the deck.
I did run some old gas during my last tank. My guess is that it has a fuel issue because of the old gas?
However, it seems odd that it came on so sudden.
I drained the old gas and filled it up with fresh gas and added some carb cleaner. Then, I ran it for a while, and it did seem to be slightly improving as it ran, but far from normal.
So, what would you guys do?
- Replace the fuel filter first?
- Keep running it to see if it clears up?
- Pull the carb and clean it?
- Or could this be an ignition issue?
