Re: Cadet 71

The early narrow frames the wiring went over the clutch cover, I believe that was only for the 70/100’s. All replacement harness I’ve seen have enough wire to run them through the frame next to the steering column, to the right of the clutch, under the flywheel starter, and then up the right side of...

Re: Bench top paint booth?

The fan came today! I spent a couple hours as I got home a bit early today. I set the fan on top just to see. The big project was the filter holder. I cut the side so I couldn’t slip in a 30x14 filet and made a way to hold it in place. I used scrap angle from some shelf’s. I’ve had them for 5 years,...

All 147’s had electric lift. If converted, it could have been converted to either Crome or painted manual lift.

Re: Bench top paint booth?

Dag the plan is to hang uni-strut (kindorf) on the inside.
I do like hanging spinning idea, the plan was to get one for the bottom.
Our A/c unit in the house uses 14x30 I’m going use the same size In case it clogs up, I always keep a few around.

So I stopped at Home Depot on the way home $50 bought me 2 2’ LED lights and 10’ duct for the fan, my only expense so far. I looked at plexiglass for the door, super thin and 75$ for a piece that is a few inches to small. I could make it work. I would need to build a frame of some sort to stiffen th...

Year after year we see wash out ice and spin outs on your driveway. I’ve never been to your place, but it’s seams like a boat load of cash and a couple days with a excavator and some pipe/new gravel are all in order! ?!?

Re: Best use for a 147?

Dag I think you mean qa42 vs qa42a. The “a” is newer and most people say it refers to the fact that it’s adjustable for the wide frame. I’m not a fan of the single stage blowers, 2 stage or nothing for me! I have 2 147’s one I converted to manual for the original owner. Now it just sits on the shelf...

Re: Cub blower for the first time!

It seams the P.O. left it at the deal for service work and they installed a electric fuel pump when the vacuum pump went bad. Think I should swap it out for a new China vacuum pump? I listed it just for kicks, I’ve got a 2082 out back 6” pto and a 551 here too... if it sells I’ll up grade!

Re: Cub blower for the first time!

I never did double check the blower gear box, I suppose it was changed to a 450 back in the day, but then it would spin faster with the larger pto?

Re: Cub blower for the first time!

Steve It’s the larger 6” pto. 451 is correct for it as it came off a 1863. Every 140/1641 and 1863/64 I’ve seen had the 6” PTO. I believe the change your referencing came about in the m18 era, 1541,1862 etc. I never tried the 1864 last night, I shoveled the places no cub or walk behind could get to ...

While I have messed with cubs for over 20 years I’ve mostly plowed. I had a qa42 on a 125 back around 2000 for one season. It was the original paint bearings etc and everything just clogged up.
