Re: 2084 hydro leak

Troy - Yeah, I view this area as a bit of a "fail" by Cub. They persist in selling the "peel and stick" gasket and they continue to punch the three holes that aren't needed that just make the gasket more vulnerable to leaking. I position the gasket so that the three holes through it are up, not down...

Re: 2082 loader

Glad it's all good again! Hopefully the hydro filter was changed with it. A clogged filter will starve the pump and kill it.

Re: Hows everyone doing during this lockdown BS... ??

Wow, I just found time to open this thread tonight. Steve, I'm glad you're on the mend, that sounded pretty close! When you're up to it, I would love a picture heavy thread on the Super project. Nice to see all you guys posting. Paul, you were able to take a vacation as our weatherman this year, but...

Re: 2082 loader

Steve's questions are to determine if the charge pump is still functioning. Think of the main pump and hydraulic motor it propels as a closed loop that leaks deliberately (internally) so that new fresh, cool coolant can replace it. The primary job of the charge pump is to provide the make-up oil (th...

Kris - Welcome! Well, you're new to our site, but certainly not to Cubs! Good to have you. For your IH made stuff, you'll be right at home in the main forum for those, the "Cub Cadets and Shooting the Breeze" section, and we also have a CCC forum for the later stuff.

Re: Super tunnel covers

That sounds like a real cool project, would make a great project thread. I would love to see your take on dedicated hydraulics for 3 pt. Also, I find the factory rear lift to be just a touch weaker than what would really be useful. I have a carry-all I throw on the back of the loader tractor, but it...

Re: Super tunnel covers

Hi Steve! Hope you are well. Yes, that was the first change I made to my newer 2182, totally hated that plastic tunnel cover. The earlier metal tunnel cover fits just like it always did, there is no difference with the fit. I also always tap the frame for 1/4"-28 flanged head screws, with a smooth f...
