I'm looking for troubleshooting help with my cub cadet mower. I'm not getting any spark and hardly any compression.
Yesterday, my mower would start, then stall. It did this twice. Now it will no longer start at all. It will spin over but will not start. I think it's lost compression, because it will spin over faster than normal. I tried checking compression with my thumb over the spark plug hole. I felt very little compression doing this.
The spark plug is not firing. I checked the plug in a different machine and the plug will fire in that machine. I checked a different spark plug in the mower, but I did not get any fire.
Could it be that the coil has gone bad? How would I check this to find out?
Also, does anyone know how I would find out if this engine has a compression release? I do not have any manuals to check this?
