  1. I've done a dry and wet compression test and based on the results I am now leaning towards this being either piston rings or timing chain or timing woodruff key stay tuned
  2. Thanks Travis. I should have added that have done what you suggested too - I pulled the plug out, connected it to the spark plug wire and while holding it near the engine head turned the key in the ignition. There was a strong blue spark and gas/vapor sprayed out of the engine head through the spark plug hole as the piston moved while the engine cranked. I then put a little oil and gas down the spark plug hole, re-inserted the spark plug and tried to start again. It seemed to have more compression this time and the starter cranked a bit slower for a few seconds but still the engine didn’t so much as sputter one bit or try to start. I’m at a loss for what to explore next. I’ve got gas, air, and spark. But the engine doesn’t even try to sputter or ignite. Compression might be a hair low because the starter does seem to be turning just a hair faster than usual. I had also swapped the gas out for new gas. Didn’t make a difference either.
  3. Hi everyone - Since Hisun makes Cub Cadet Challengers i am posting this here too as well as the cub cadet forum in hopes of reaching someone who can help me. I was driving my 2017 Cub Cadet Challenger 750 EPS today on the ranch when it dies on me. It started right up - and then as i was driving after about 50 feet the engine just turned off. It was running perfect before it cut out on me. No alarms, no weird sounds or smells. It just turned off. When I turn the ignition key, the starter cranks away and the battery and starter turns fast and strong - but the engine doesn't start. I've confirmed gas flow to the carb - that the fuel filters are clean and clear. I've replaced the spark plug with a brand new one. I checked every fuse with a meter. I have confirmed air filters and airflow are good. But the darn thing cranks away without the engine even making a sputter or even attempting to fire. Is there a kill switch somewhere that could have been tripped? I checked the seatbelt sensor, the brake sensor, and parking gear sensor - all are working and i'm in Park, pressing down on the brake, and have the seatbelt latched when i try to start. but - nada! It acts like it isn't getting a spark. but like i said i put in a new spark plug. I have a feeling there is a sensor or an electrical kill switch somewhere that tripped. open to any ideas. thanks all, Pierce
