Checked the plastic linkage bushings, they don't seem excessively sloppy and are securely in the holes, so I don't think that is the issue. I do need to order some spares though as I have 3 of these machines running now and not a spare of these parts on the place should one break or I drop one.

The guy at Isavetractors has the only carb I saw listed with 2 choke shafts. All the others appear to have the wrong shaft. Anybody know if the one out of my carb will swap with the Chineese replacements?

Hi John:

I had the same problem with my nonadjustable Walbro.

You can't use the choke lever out of your old carb and use the new choke plate because the holes for securing it (the plate) on the lever shaft are not in the same location as the new one. When I tried using my old choke lever and choke plate in the new isavetractors carb, it (the plate) did not seat correctly inside the carb. (Do they fit inside - yes. Is it a good solution? No, it's a crappy option because the old plate in the new carb binds and leaves gaps around the plate edges and the walls of the new carb.) You really are forced to use the new choke lever with the new choke plate. I did and my KT17-2 in my 682 runs much better because you can now adjust it....and everything is nice and tight in the new carb.

Below is the new isavetractors carb (the one you need) with my old choke lever and plate installed - and the choke never worked correctly. Norman at isavetractors now carries the choke lever in the "upward position" which is the correct lever for our application - which he did not have when I purchased the carb last year. I have since received the new upward lever (free with $5/shipping), installed it and the choke now operates perfectly.

Hope this helps.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
