    Model 70

    If it has that serial number and a K161 then it's a Model 70, unless someone has changed the engine from a 10hp 100 back to a 7hp. There really isn't anything else other than the engine that would allow you to differentiate between a 100 and 70 of that vintage. Later model 100's would have a...

    tranny trouble

    Well, sounds like you already did the obvious stuff. The description of the problem makes it sound like there is a pressure/flow problem. There are not many things that can create that kind of problem. The easy one is the filter and fluid. After that you could look at the bypass valves on...

    Cub Cadet 70

    Hmmm, using a front blade with that shifter setup would certainly be exciting. Better make sure that blade trips pretty freely. It's one thing to take a steering wheel in the gut, but that setup...... :yikes:

    Tractor For Sale Cub Cadet 127 for sale

    Selling a Cub Cadet 127. I took this apart and refurbished it about 15 years ago. The paint job is rattle can, looks better in the pictures than in person, it's scratched and scuffed from use. Comes with the weights, a very lightly used set of original Firestones (not reproductions), sleeve...

    Look what followed me home: a K321A replacement engine...NOS?

    The engine sure looks new. But I wonder if someone hasn't swapped out the muffler and exhaust elbow, or maybe painted them. They have been black like the rest of the engine on all the replacement engines I have seen. That would explain the backwards lock ring.

    Hello from upstate NY

    I grew up SE of Syracuse, so Massena was always the true "upstate" for me. There is a web site that has a list of old IH dealerships. They list the following for Robinson Farm Equipment.

    Hello from upstate NY

    Just for some background on putting the 44 inch decks on the narrow frame machines here is some info. IH did offer an adapter kit for this application. If you go through the parts search for a 44a deck it still lists the adapter package for serial numbers 65458 to 400000 and has the parts...
