Re: Breather line into the air cleaner

Group member David Kirk offers this- Image from his web site. Installed.jpg With some effort and the proper fittings I'd suppose it could be plumbed into the rear air filter housing. Adding an in line PCV valve may help. While I have never tried it myself it's been reported inverting the standard co...

Type A belt will work just fine for the spindles. However for the PTO to deck belt I prefer the genuine article.
It has a much thicker cross section than a type A belt making it far less likely to invert when twisting around the idler pulleys.

Re: couple questions about a 100

A comparable Stewart- Warner gauge from Summit Racing is 41 bucks, and most likely it will be made in Mexico. I do know that the mechanicial style water temp gauges are.

The correct current replacement amp gauge can be had directly from Cub Cadet under part number 925-3141. $39.98. This gauge is made by Faria Corp.

Yeah. That was a good one. Notice that the older IH gauge and the quiet line gauge are both made by Rochester Instruments.

Why that looks simple enough to open up and recalibrate. Can you glue the magnet back in it's proper place?

Re: My quietline

It could have gotten pegged at some time in it's life due to a dead short throwing off the calibration. When these gauges are constantly bouncing about while running it's common that the glued on counter weight fixed to the bottom side of the pointer has fallen off. These were never intended to be d...
