    Those &%$*! Roll Pins

    I can tell you from first hand experience that 2004 Corvettes had them on the seat recline handle...and yes, they are absolutely impossible to find on a concrete floor. I had to lay a shop light on the floor to try to find the shadow it cast. FYI. The best way to remove those is to hear a...

    New Old 104 Owner

    Go to www.isavetractors.com He has a youtube channel with some very informative videos. This one is particularly informative. He also sells just about everything you need for your Kohler K series engine. He is a little more expensive than other suppliers, but his stuff is top notch and he...

    Those &%$*! Roll Pins

    dsarow, that is my issue. It's really tough to get a good angle in that location with my big mitts. I'll try the C clamp method. That seems to be the most promising alternative method and I some short black pipe stubs I can use in place of a socket. My goal is just to get the pin moving...

    Those &%$*! Roll Pins

    How can you tell which way it went in? That may be what I'm doing wrong. Incidentally, I do have a set of pin punches with the little nub. I think a big part of the problem I'm having is that it's really hard to reach. I use a forklift to pull the tractor vertical by the front axle and make...

    Those &%$*! Roll Pins

    I just need to vent about how INCREDIBLY much I hate roll pins! It seems like every time I encounter one, from the steering column on my '70 Charger to the...well...seemingly EVERYTHING on my Cub Cadet 104, they are firmly stuck in place, necessitating the use of the old "drill and tap" removal...

    Perhaps An Experiment Is In Order

    My suggestion (and I could definitely have been clearer) was more about testing the store bought stuff i.e. rustoleum, valspar, etc. But I can defintely see that Im beating a dead horse.

    Perhaps An Experiment Is In Order

    So, while disassembling the 104 for restoration today, I took off the rear panel and saw that, right there where the panel had sat against the differential cover, the original paint was pristine in my unrestored cub. This gave me an idea. There is a lot of back and forth on this site about...

    Hello Everyone. New Member Here.

    To be honest, I'm kinda brand-agnostic when it comes to tractors. They are all pretty cool (though I'm kinda sick of seeing green and yellow!). I think I got pretty lucky finding a Cub Cadet for my first project since they are simple as an anvil and have loads of aftermarket support. There's...

    Oh good! I thought I was weird for obsessively checking Craigslist every day!

    Progress Pics Disassembly

    Hi All Thought I'd post some progress pics. Disassembly is proceeding at a rapid pace (well, as rapid as it can be considering all the other stuff I have going on in my life. All I have left is removal of the linkages and the driveshaft and transmission. Then all the sheetmetal will get...

    Hello Everyone. New Member Here.

    Thank you very much for the welcome. Funny enough. I did exactly zero research on these things before I bought this. I had no idea the starter was missing until I got it back to the warehouse and started doing some reading on it. Lesson learned! No biggie though...I found one on ebay (that...

    Thread size/pitch.

    Hi All I just pulled the steering wheel off my cub 104. That was an ordeal because shaft and wheel were rusted together pretty solid. It took a bearing splitter, a wheel puller, a hammer, and about a gallon of PB Blaster. In any case, to make a long story short...my efforts resulted in...

    Hello Everyone. New Member Here.

    Hi Everyone. I recently bought my first "classic." A 68 Cub 104. I have ZERO experience with anything tractor related (though I've wrenched on a few old cars). While I've always thought tractors were really cool, I'm a city boy, so the closest thing I've ever come is a Husqvarna riding...
