Re: Front axel question

The only thing you may run into is the length of the drag link. It may not be the right length but you may be able to use the one from the wide frame.

AG tires

Guys,
Does anyone have a set of 23-10.50-12 Cheng Shin brand AG tires? I'd like to see a pic of what they look like if anyone does. I have searched online and all
I can find are generic photos. I need a pic of an actual tire in that size.

Re: Finally found an Onan for the 982

Like I do with the Kohlers, I would tear it apart and measure everything. Try to find some specs or a manual. They will have wear tolerances on all the wear parts. If the bore ans pistons are within tolerances, just hone and replace the rings. But if it has too much wear, is too far out of round, or...

I think a lot of people are going to facebook. I'm thinking about starting a FB page that will link to this site.
There are a bunch of FB groups on Cub Cadets but none that I really like.

I think we really took a hit when the Registry

Re: In need of advice

Well said Paul. First off, a collection only has worth if you are willing to sell it. If you plan on keeping things forever, don't even worry about value. It also depends on what you want to do with it. In my opinion, diesels shouldn't be show queens. So if it will be a working tractor, you will cer...

I run the Rotella SAE 30 in my 882 diesel with some STP since it is high in zinc. I didn't realize it did have zinc already. I won't put the STP in air cooled Kohlers because Kohler strongly recommends against any additives. I'll see what I can find out about the Lucas at work. Valvoline does make a...

Re: What OIL for MODEL 129 with Kohler Engine ???

I haven't done much research on it, but I'm wondering if the modern 30 wt oils still have zinc in them. All modern car engines have roller tappets and don't need the zinc. But flat tappets
in our Kohlers and other older engines do. They have taken to zinc out because of some emission issues.

Bryan, I'm pretty sure I took the whole driveshaft out of mine without moving the engine or trans. I think if you drive both pins out of the rear couplers, the whole thing can slide forward on the shaft. Then unbolt the rag joint at the front. You may also have to drive the pin out at the front.
