Re: How many hours should i expect from a rebuild mag 18?

That yellow blade does look awesome on there!!! I would think that it should last until you don't want to use it anymore at that rate. Pushing that blade will cause wear on the driveline and rag joints before I would think that it would hurt the engine. Just keep the rear axle bolts tight and you sh...

Re: cub 2082

Ronnie, The 2082 is a damn fine machine. I have one with a 50" deck. Typical magnum engine issues apply, for example governor and breathers can have issues around 1,000 to 1,500 hours. Also, typical cyclops plastic issues. Look for leaking wheel seals (common problem, not a difficult repair) and mak...

I'm not sure how it happened, but I have one with a 44" yellow deck. It is an honest 1863 ( not something with the wrong side panels).

This stuff all came from the same dealer that I got the sign from in another thread.

I guess this hobby has come full circle

Picked this up last weekend. It actually has a bit of sentimental value to me. It hung inside of the dealership that gave me my first tax paying job when I worked there back in the mid 1980's. This job is what led me back to Cub cadets and other brands about 12 years ago. I was talking with a friend...

Re: 1641, finally have a modern-ish cub.

Good little machines if you can get use to the different sound and action of the hydro. The vanguard 16 has plenty of power. Have you got to run it yet? When I ran my first cyclops, I couldn't believe how tight they steered.

Re: Help with Kohler build

It might bolt onto the frame, but not in the existing holes. The starting and charging systems would be different. Would have to re-wire the tractor itself to make it run as it is. Closure plate for geared starter and generator start are different, so you are dis assembling the engine partially, and...

Jeff, So many core and good engines are both available for the narrow frames. You are asking for headaches, and modifications that you don't need to do. Also, I think the flywheel from a 10-12 are the same, and the 14-16 are balanced differently. I don't think that block can be just trimmed, you wou...

The points are just as reliable as an electronic ignition. period. Your symptoms seem more like a problem due to heat.

It's the thin line on the front of the crankshaft. Look about 90 degrees off of the keyway. Look directly ahead of the part number straight ahead of the first throw.

Pete, The 1641 did not have the same axle as the supers. A super garden tractor axle is much heavier than the standard gt axles, and strictly fits the supers. The "Super steer" axles allow the wheels to turn sharper because of the angle of the kingpin area , and have a higher arc that allows the use...

Lock the brake pedal down and drag the rear tires if you are in doubt if the hydro is released. The older ones and the newer ones had manual release on them but yours should have auto release valves.
