Thanks,

Some things are ok to purchase used,
Ignition switches, flash bulbs, condoms & tampons are not on that list.

Haha! Agreed!!! ...I know right, used switch. I'm just a little gun shy of ordering another brand new one off the internet, the last one was supposed to match and did not. Plus I can't find a straight answer on whether or not the new one will be 3 or 4 position for the lights. I'm an idiot for throwing the old one away, you live and learn I guess. ...I even went through the trash in my shop to see if maybe it didn't make it all the way to the curb.

Thank you for the advice on the wiring harness...hopefully this thing doesn't go up in smoke. I've been a little gun shy to dive in too far on the electrical side of things. I just don't know that much about it. No time like the present.

Thank you guys for the help!!!

Gabe

There was comedian on the radio years ago that was talking about finding his mom's tampons when he was a kid, he thought they were little sticks of dynamite so he was lighting them and throwing them over the neighbors fence.

Gabe just do a quick google image search or eBay search and you’ll see the proper switch has 5 terminals my good man. Straight answer

It was the ignition. The 1811 is running great. I warmed it up for 15 min at 1/4 throttle, another 15 at half. Ran it for an hour doing some light mowing on dry leafs. Gonna change the oil again and I think it should be good after that. You guys saved me a bunch of headache and some cash, thank you!!

One of the oil lines is leaking. Looking for some advice on replacing it. Would you build your own line or just buy a new one? The low oil sensor is also leaking from the top of it. Is that something that can be picked up at an auto parts store or a Cub dealer?

Here's a link to a video:

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.
