Re: Carb Repairs

Charlie
I did find a OEM for the bushing without the shaft. 25-158-02-s. I’ve yet to try this but it has been saved in my eBay watch list for some time. It’s around $15 with shipping. Keep us posted.

Re: Carb Repairs

Worked with 3 this spring, 2 couldn’t get the high speed and adjustment right. The third came from a different source and I couldn’t adjust low speed! Re-rebuild the Kohler carb and it’s not happy either. Take care of your fuel systems, run them dry and find ethnoal free fuel!

Re: First mow pics

I mowed this week, not the whole yard just a patchwork. Today we had snow, same system as Ken.... crazzy! We may have lost part of the garden, just lettuce was in the ground, I’ll look tomorrow.

Re: Last Year/Model for Genuine I-H Cub Cadet ???

The 3000 series took over for the 1997 models. The cyclops series ended at that point.

Red cub cadet tagged IH ended in 1985 with the case IH merger but like Dave said it was a long road.

Lately I have been buying fixing and reselling cubs. I do around 10-20 a year. Some get mowers and some get plows, some get parted some get sold the same way I found them. This spring I have been busy, I posted pictures of a big load about 3 weeks ago. Since then a friend dropped off 4, 2 129’s and ...

Definitely pull the fuel tank, then the hood support the linkage is all attached to the steering column the roll pin is behind the column though. I like the newer cl...

If it’s anything like here, everything will be open! There are a few less cars out and about, but every where I’ve seen is open. Restaurants are take out only, but everything is open everyone is working. This whole thing about staying home is only if you where a suit!

Our service department is essential for sure. No one wants to be stuck in a Elevator for 14 days! As for new install??? I think we are critical at keeping the economy going! Like I said in my last post, I’m not sure for how long, customers might be backing out and Parts might not be available.

I don’t think I’ve ever used it on shrink wrap, it does work well on stake on type termanal ends. I’ve used it here and don’t know of a issue. I used it on both the built in shrink wrap type and “dry duty” terminal ends.
