My neighbor asked me to look at their Cub Cadet with a Kawasaki engine, she said her husband hit something and it stopped running and wouldn't restart. The shaft doesn't appear to be bent but it will need a new blade. My first thought was a sheared flywheel key but it's fine. I hate to spend $75 on a coil when I know this machine was working fine until it hit something. What could I look for that could be the culprit here.

Thanks Freak that was it, I don't know how hitting something would have caused it but pulling the bail all the way wouldn't open the circuit for it to run, a little adjustment and it fired on the first pull. This was my first experience with a kawasaki and I really like it. Runs smooth and quiet and easy to start. I didn't care for the design of the CC. It had the caster front wheels

the castor wheels are the bomb!. i am quickly hooked on them . really cuts down on the effort to turn and aids in trimming. that cub is a decent desighn for a economy comm mower. i have the same thing only its called a mtd pro

Good suggestion on that. I would have never thought of that check either. Probably hard enough of a jolt that the mounting bracket moved just enough.
