Default 1810, gas in oil

I’m working on an 1810 for someone. I’m supposed to be fixing a leak in the rear end, but it is also not running. Never tried to start it when I went to pick it up, we just pushed it onto the trailer, he didn’t say anything about it not running. When he said the tractor doesn’t move, I thought he just meant it was out of fluid, and runs but doesn’t move, but I couldn’t get it to start. I wanted to take it outside and wash it, then drive it around and see if I can figure out where it’s leaking from. I noticed gas coming out of the muffler, checked and the crankcase is full of gas. Should I start with the carb or fuel pump? I don’t want to just start throwing parts at it, and definitely don’t want to blow the motor on someone else’s tractor. Obviously I will have to change the oil before I can run it.

I would start with the Carb.
See if there is crud that is holding the needle open.

Then see if the fuel pump Diaphragm is busted.

Probably one of the two issues.

Now would be a good time to clean the tank and filters.

The fuel pump isn't needed on the 18xx machines as long as the tank is about 1/3+ full. You can bypass it for testing but being that it is probably around 35 years old it wouldn't hurt to replace it either.

The first thing I would do it inform the owner and describe what is involved fixing it!!
He might not be aware of the problem or want to fix it, or worse, think you are baiting him into a big repair bill.
Depending how well you know him, I'd get the parts money up front!
BTDT,
snooker me once, shame on them, snooker me twice, shame on me.
When money is involved, relatives snooker you first, them "friends" second, ---
then strangers.
Advice from the skool of hard knox.

Sell a mower or a tractor to a relative or a friend, and they expect that because you know how to fix it. They just got something with a lifetime warranty, on free parts and labor.

Thanks. I will check the carb tonight. Hopefully that is all it is. I noticed there is a lot of dirt at the bottom of the tank, so that is likely.

Thanks, I will try to talk him into replacing it.

I have known the guy forever, don’t think I will have any problems. I have done work for him before, he trusts me and I trust him.

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.
