Re: Everyone sould have a 100....

Craig, It has lived within 20 miles of where the IH plant was, all of it's life. Now it lives about half that distance from where the IH plant was, and the selling dealer was less than 5 miles from the IH plant, but the plant and selling dealer no longer exist.

Re: Everyone sould have a 100....

I have owned several 70/100's over the years, and some of them were custom's (Orchard, High clear, cultivision, etc) and always said I would always have a 100 or if I didn't I knew where one was for sale. When I sold the last one I had, the one I knew of for sale at that time turned out the owner th...

Everyone sould have a 100....

This one got in my truck yesterday. Was built in June 1964, and was bought new and owned by the same family until I bought it. The second seat was to give grandchildren a ride (not while mowing I hope)

Re: Cub hauling trailer

Cal, I do not have a powder coated trailer, but have other stuff that is powder coated, and I don't like it. The powder coated stuff will scratch and chip, specially on something like a trailer (or newer model Cub Cadet and decks) that can get some heavy use. IMO it is easier to touch up a painted s...

Re: Up a creek without a paddle & Tiffen finds .

Thank you Cal.

Don't know how it's going to be hauling a trailer around. It has a "Max Towing" package, but just a 5.3L engine rather than the 6.2L (that requires 91 plus octane gas). It's rated to tow 11K with the 5.3 and 3.73 gears (that may be down hill or on flat ground) We'll see. :roll: :|

Re: Refresh my mind please

Vince At half throttle, voltage should be 13 to 14.5 volts. If it is 12.5 or less ground the F terminal and if the voltage goes up the problem is probably the regulator. A good trouble shooting guide can be found here on the Simplicity/ AC site. http://www.simpletractors.com/service/electrics/starte...
