New to me Cub Cadet 86

Hey guys, haven't posted in awhile. Been pretty busy between work and rebuilding the motor on the Farmall M. Did manage to pick up a Cub Cadet 86 back in the fall, and after some fixes it needed, have a solid little tractor! The key way was missing on the crank so the pully and basket weren't held i...

Re: Cub hauling trailer

Cal, I just sold my PJ that I had bought several years ago and it was powder coated. All in all, it was holding up pretty well except for 1 area. Inside the channel frame rails, it seems like the powder coat didn't cover very well and there was definitely some surface rust in there. The rest of it d...

Mike, there should be a slot/bolt hole in the right side of the fire wall that the filter mounts to. Swap the 782 fire wall with the other one and you should be good to go! :beer:

Cub Cadet 73

After pondering it for awhile and finally seeing one come up for sale, I decided to pick up a Cub Cadet 73. There are a couple of reasons for it, but primarily my first Cub Cadet was a 73. I had an opportunity to purchase my original 73 a few years back, but the tractor was no longer in the conditio...

Re: 1572 rear end

Since you are that far, you could also check around to find one that's not broken and replace as well. I found my adapter house for $50, tore down to where you are, reassembled and back in the tractor. Just keep in mind, it has to be the house for a Super as the gearing is different between the stan...

Re: 1811 back from the dead

What you can actually do is buy a 3 pt hitch for a 782 with the Frankenstein bolts and buy the lower bracket from xtreme motorworks designed for the aluminum rears. It will have 2 tabs that attach to the axle tubes as well as the back plate, which I've heard of people having good luck with. The 782 ...

They were originally on my 982 and I used a loader with it, never had a problem with them at all. 8 ply is overkill in my book, I'm not sure you could overwork a Super to that ...

Re: my new toy

Good suggestions Tom. I wasn't at all suggesting braces weren't an alternative route to go, unfortunately I don't have the ability to make them myself and I felt it was important to start with a solid housing first. I do like the idea of Permatex #2, I hadn't given that any consideration when I rein...

Re: my new toy

I didn't use additional braces when I fixed mine. I swapped out to a good, used housing ($50) and when I reassembled everything I used the red Loctite to ensure the bolts don't back out, especially where the front mounts are. This is what usually causes the mounts to break in the first place. I will...
