    Default Cub Cadet 1250 Starter spinning not flywheel

    I had a bad day yesterday, went out started the 1604 that died (seperate post).
    Started the 1250 for the season first time. Everything fine for the first 3 times I started it, then I came to a stop on a slight side hill, tried to restart it and just get a hum of the starter spinning, but not engaging the flywheel.
    I took the starter off and applied 12V to it and it spins, the gears look O.K. What is the thing that looks like a small rubber like cylinder on the end that I can pull out supposed to do (if anything)?
    Thanks for your help.
    Not sure why the starter would not engage and turn the flywheel.

    I don't know anything about CubCadets but most starters have a solenoid that makes the gear on the end of the starter mesh with the flywheel gear. It sounds like that is not getting the juice to engage the starter.

    some starters have a solenoid to engage the starter gear, others us inertia. Could put a bit of lube on the shaft, not so much as to make it gummy.

    Yep, most likely inertia actuated Bendix. I'd take it apart and clean and reassembly dry. Oil and grease make great dirt magnets.

    Thanks.
    I'll try taking it apart and cleaning it up.
