Default Clear glass container

So many times I read on here where someone cleaned their carb 6 times, filled the tank with gas, got good flow to the carb, but it still won't run good. Catch some of the gas in a glass container and see what it looks like. Water being heavier will come out of the tank first and settle to the bottom, see attached photo. Two years ago I bought a 782 that sat outside for awhile after blowing the engine. I drained the tank into a gallon milk jug and got about 2 qt. of water and 1 qt. of gas.

That's a LOT of water! Good reminder. If I ever pull the fuel bowl a second time off a piece of equipment and get water both times, I clean the tank.

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.
