So, now I am awaiting a new flywheel, and since I had the entire thing apart and this should have lots of life left, I ordered all new seals from top to bottom and a new piston ring for good measure, while I was in there.

I will report back, when I get it back together.
So did it appear the flywheel had ever been removed? The only engines I remember this being an issue on were the old Briggs, those things were bad about shearing keys, but most of the time it had to do with the last guy that worked on it not getting the nut tight enough--Think a lot of them used the ratchet for the recoil and most folks didn't have the proper tool for tightening it--smacked it with a big hammer instead.

Leave push mowers that run into obstacles out of the conversation, that's a different scenario all together.

I can't tell it was removed, but my best assessment is that the nut holding the flywheel on became loose over time, resulting in the flywheel key slipping. It eventually stripped the flywheel male section of the key over time, eventually throwing the timing off. I placed some titelock and used a torque wrench to get it set back home.

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.
