    800 Carburetor and Choke Pictures

    Looking for some help with 800 carb and choke routing pictures. My 800 carb has the choke lever coming out the left side and it doesn‘t look correct, and I am in need of a new carburetor and would like to get the right one. Thank you, Mike

    The Perfect Plow Tractor?

    If I wanted to add hydraulic lift to a 582 or and wide frame, I would do it like this. Use as much as you can of what IH made, from hydraulic lift equipped tractor. Then add a small pump driven off the driveshaft. I can not take credit for this, it is posted on another Cub Cadet site, and...

    LED shop lights

    Be careful with LED fixtures and bulbs they are not all created equal. For shop use it doesn't pay to go with LED fixtures and if you figure the wattage difference between a T8 lamp and a LED replacement lamp you only save 8-12 watts per lamp. Here are the 2 most common shop lights I used to...

    Thank you very much guys for all info. I had never thought of a sheered key way but that is possible, and yes it has back fired before. It would also explain all the issues. Is there any adjustment to the timing other than points gap? Thanks again Mike

    Thank you Melody, I am going to try a different carb try and pick one up on ebay, if that doesn't do it I think I will pull the motor this winter and see what I can find. If the carb doesn't fix it I am thinking it is the ACR or timing issue? Thank you, Mike

    Thank you Scott & Allen for the help. I tried spraying carb cleaner in it as I throttled up, it got the rpms to come up but it still runs like crap when it gets there, it misses and surges. When starting it seems like the timing is off it starts hard and compresses gas out the carb when...

    I have a 1450 that is giving me fits, it won't rev up or gain RPM it idles ok but you go to rev it up and it just wants to die. If you play with it just right and do get it to gain RPM it misses and shudders, and runs terrible. I have done fuel filter, air filter, carb kit, different gas...
