Hello from Massachusetts

Postby Smalljob » Mon Jul 24, 2017 10:56 am

I am relatively new to Cub Cadets. I got my first one a 1963 100 and I am in the middle of a complete restore. Just last week I picked up 1962 Original that I had planned to wait to work on but you know how that is can't wait to tinker. I do have other experience on old John Deere's 1963 - 1967. I am really enjoying working on the Cubs. The older the better.

Nice! That original rubber on the 100 looked cool! Can't say I have ever seen r4 tires on a Cub....let alone installed backwards. Can't wait for your new pics!

The original was not running and the clutch was apart in a box. Looks like I have most of the parts for the clutch and what I don't have looks to still be available. I pulled the head to check out the engine and my first challenge was the head bolt near the exhaust broke, but I was able to get it out after a couple of days. When I pulled the carb to be able to heat up the block for removal of the head bolt I noticed that the governor arm moved too much. Short of it is the little flapper arm was broken so the shaft spun 360 degrees. Drained the oil, almost none in it. Pulled pan found the broken arm plus a chunk of something else. Yikes ! got it all apart and the pieces were from the piston. The arm that broken must have got sucked up, but fortunately it only damaged the piston the the cylinder wall. Gonna get it cleaned up and checked for tolerances and then a rebuild. I did a K161 on a 1963 JD 110 a couple of years ago and I seem to recall that pistons for the old small cylinder K161 are not as readily available. I know some guys just bore them to take the K181 std piston if need be. I am happy to have a k161. From what I have read the replacement engine for the original was the K181.

Pretty snazzy 100!
Looks like it is going to be well optioned too, three point, head lights and creeper. Now you need one of the hydraulic lifts that are being hoarded :D
The weight box looks like one from a loader.
