Re: IH Cub Cadet lawn sweepers

I did a little more research and it is made by Parker. I just picked one up yesterday and it is an IH #2. I was able to download the manual on the forum here. Looking at the various Parker models it looks like the closest is either a TE7036 or a TE7636. It is in pretty good shape and it works pretty...

IH Cub Cadet lawn sweepers

Who made the lawn sweepers that were labeled International? I was thinking I heard one time they were made by
Parker, but I don't remember for sure. Maybe Ohio steel may have made them as well. Anyone know for sure? How about parts availability?

Re: 1772 vibration

I know on mine it vibrates more at certain RPMs. It vibrates pretty good at idle but at about 1/4 throttle it smooths right out. As mentioned, the spherical bushing at each end get worn and can allow the shaft to whip rather than spin. Does the shaft appear to spin true when running?

Re: Steering tube question

I clean them up really good then rough them up with 80 grit sandpaper. I use red (high strength) thread locker to hold them in.
If I need to replace the tube, 1-1/2" exhaust pipe works great.

Re: Ag tire question

Re: 102 light installation

If someone had a parts catalog from just after the 1X4/5 came out, that may tell the story since the rear panel would have been changed to one with the screw inserts for the oval light.

I already had the holes in the fender (I assume they were there from factory since both fenders have them).

I had always assumed that that style light came with the 1X4 series.

Apparently they must have chaged the hole size in the bracket from the 70/100 to the 1X2/3 series. Kind of sucks because I made the bracket new using the one from my 100 as a pattern. If I had looked at the 102 fender I could have drilled the hole in the smaller size. Oh well, stuff happens. I'll ju...

We had a brand new Super come into the dealership back in the late 80s that had mismatched tires like that. They were the Goodyear Softracs and one was about 3" taller than the other with the same air pressure. I probably have a photo of it somewhere.

Re: What does carburetor solenoid do?

It is correc that engines with the solenoid should be shut down at half throttle. I will add that you still want to throttle the engine down to idle for a minute or so to cool it off, then increase to half throttle before shutting the ignition off.
