Cub Cadet OHV P70-173cc 19' Push Mower

It wont start at all. $280 Mower
Cub Cadet OHV Overhead Valve Engine P70-173cc/6.75ft. lbs-3060 RPMS, Made April 2008, 19" Cut Push Mower, Mulch-Side Discharge-Bag Ready-Single Lever Height Adjustment
Model#:11A-18MC056 Serial#:1D238KC0172

Im Trying To Locate A Service Manual For It. I Cleaned The Carb & Checked The Fuel. I Sprayed The Carb & It Will Start & Then Shut Off. A Service Tech Told Me It Would Be Cheaper To Buy A New Mower Than To Fix This One. He Said It Was Carb / Fuel Problem. He Said It Would Be To Expensive To Troubleshoot & Give An Estimate On The Cost Of Repairs. My Dad Said It Could Be A Flywheel Sheer Key ($5 Part). I Dont Know How To Replace It. I Am A Disabled Vet & My Son Helped Me With It When He Was In Town From Ft. Lewis, Washington. He Has Since Returned.

Thak You & God Bless!

If you can keep it up and running w/ carb spray, you are likely looking at an issue in the main jet which is in the center stem of the carb and must be removed to clean many times, or you can try repeated bursts with the straw of the carb cleaner. These carbs are pricey enough from MTD. Honda carbs are cheap, dunno if it is the same if you were to match yours up at a Honda dealer.
