Re: 126 repower

Looks great. So is the cam dip stick the factory original location on these units? That's where my 127 is but it's a factory replacement engine. The original owner had a dealer install.

Re: I found a collection of Cub Cadets

Sounds like you have the cub virus..that will be fun dragging all of them home! Most doctors say the only cure for that is to hord as much cub stuff as you can from your state... until you can't walk around your garage without tripping over cub cadet junk...then you will start to feel better and the...

Re: Steering changes between garden and super garden

Good question Steve. I have no idea but yes they do ad a lot of wear points and I have seen the large pin and lever thing very sloppy. I doubt anyone ever greases that and now I think about it....I haven't hit mine with grease in a long time. When guys ad power steering to 982s and others I'm sure i...

Re: 1979 Cub Cadet International Purchase

I take that back...with that engine....$900 max. Like Tom said....that engine has a very bad reputation.... especially on a hill or embankment. Few years ago I sold a very clean all original 1811 with a beautiful deck. Only able to get $800.

Yeah nice tractor. It still has value but I think that tractor would be best for a trained cub cadet eye? It looks like it has new paint and that's fine but you don't know what your getting underneath the new gloss. A few things aren't adding up and unfortunately that means don't trust anything anyo...

Re: 1979 Cub Cadet International Purchase

This all sounds very exciting! This 1979 has a model number? This model starts with the engine horse power followed by "00" for gear drive or "50" for hydro drive. Ex. I have a 1979 "1650" which is 16 hp hydrostatic drive. I think a lot of your experience with a tractor like this will be based on ho...

Hi. Couple quick things to check. Try removing a couple of the mower belts. Taking the deck belt off will let you spin the spindles and any idlers by hand and make sure they all move without effort. Removing the pto drive belt will let you check other pulleys and idlers. With the pto belt off you co...

Thanks BM. Do you have any guesses on a model ? I know Tom is into the newer cubs.. maybe he has this 2770... I think it's his loader tractor?. I wish baby cub would reply. I want to get this unsolved mystery behind me so I can move on with life.
