John, there isn't a "factory hole" for the light switch. It's possible that the dealer (more likely the PO) installed the light switch in the wrong location. The proper location is on the lower left hand side of the dash tower/pedestal.

Afternoon guys! I'm sad to read of Mr.Tanner's passing. Prayers to his family and friends. I recall he enjoyed his 982, I believe, and I too,delighted in his shared IH Cub Cadet enthusiasm here, at the most respected site on the net!

RE: 125

Q: Why don't my model 125 have the factory hole cut-out for the side mount (on left of dash tower) IH push-pull headlight switch?

My tractor has what appears to be a very original headlamp switch located in, and described as "lighter" location. However, the switch I have is in fact a push-pull switch with the plastic knob.

Q: If my 125 did come with a lighter, where would the headlamp switch have been located?

Other events concerning my 125: It is taken apart currently, and is cleaning up very nice. I'm currently replacing all gaskets on the trans axle except for the axle carriers. The pump is on the bench awaiting to be cleaned and inspected. New Hy-Tran and Cub Cadet filter to be added. Trying to have the pump mounted back to the trans axle to have all ready to re-couple to the 125 frame on this Saturday. From here, I'll attempt to find a replacement safety switch spring lever, clean and inspect the manual lift assembly. I have a new container of Never Dull cotton wadding that I figure will do a good number on the nice chrome lift lever!

Some one before my ownership of this nice 125, used an off-brand yellow color to cover up where the battery cracked and leaked, the rust and discoloration there-in (sort of upsetting).

Once it's back together and shined up for picture day, I'm going to make every effort to get pictures posted. Can't wait!

Other news: Cold here in N.E Ohio today. Around 68* as of the moment, last night the coolness dipped down to/around 54*-56*. Nice sleeping weather for us!

Thank you all, and have a great day!

IH Cub Cadet tractors aren't built to a price, but to a standard.....we work constantly to improve them without changing their basic proven design.

Like everyone else, I'm saddened by the news of Don T passing. Thank you, Frank, for letting us know. Condolences to Don's family and close friends like Frank C.

I think this just goes to show us how forums can give so much more than just the subject matter. I made a great friend here and I think Nic B hit the nail on the head by saying, "it's a sad day for IHcubcadet"

R.I.P. Don Tanner
