Re: Hell Out There In The Promise Land

Fred, it's all good, we've all made some funny typo's! We don't really have any members that are using the series of compact tractors you have. We are happy to have you around, but I don't think we are going to be much help. You might do better on a compact tractor forum. That being said, you're wel...

Re: Need a little help

Well, in the absence of a reply from the OP, I can at least say "Hi" to dag and BM! Hope things are well for both of you. I've never heard of this model number, I think David has the number wrong as dag suggests. As per my signature, my loader tractor is a 2182. David, reply back to us with some pic...

Re: Snow Blade Lift Height 1650

Does the rockshaft lift arm have multiple holes? A hole further out on the rockshaft will provide more lift. Conversely, if the bracket for the lift rod at the blade has multiple holes, then the hole closest to its attachment point will provide more lift. The above are likely stupid questions, as yo...

Re: Starter or Relay or Something Else ???

George - Nice post to read this morning, thanks for putting it up! And you might just have saved someone else from missing the spacer install.

Your money on the new battery was not wasted, and you saved the starter for free. Nice win!

Re: relief valves and moving tractor

I've only had newer machines with the automatic valves, but you are correct, you should not be able to push with valves not depressed. If the tractor has sat for a long time perhaps enough fluid has drained from the main system that you are able to move some, but... I would not move it at all withou...

Re: 1811 Blue Wires

The manual does give the color code, but my memory is the same as Joe, blue = lights. The harness has the connector at each taillight location, and the taillights each have a pig tail that plugs in. Allows for easy removal of fender pan without disturbing bulbs.

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

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...

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.
