    Front steering knuckle bolt size

    1330 is a lawn tractor, not a garden tractor, and has a completely different (smaller) axle.

    motor hoist idea

    This worked for me: Engine stand + small floor jack + some other odds and ends.

    Front steering knuckle bolt size

    Yes, the axle castings are the same between a 169 and 782. Only difference is the spindle itself.

    New to me "sad" 782, so I will need lots of help here

    No such thing on a 782...clevis pin behind the one that attaches the hydraulic cylinder to the rockshaft gets replaced with a slightly longer one.

    New to me "sad" 782, so I will need lots of help here

    For the IH style 3-point with the upper cast piece that pivots in the frame, the lift bar you need is a straight piece of 1/2 x 1-1/2" steel bar stock with a counterbored 1/2?" hole at the front end and 5/8" or 3/4" (can't remember) hole at the back end. There should be a dimensioned drawing of...

    Just got the 670 predator motor on her.

    You mean other than hacking a big notch in the frame?

    Cub 100 paint color

    This was PPG mixed to the 901 color code from the FAQ. Definitely had a slight green cast to it, but I thought it looked nice. Take all of these pictures and comparisons with a grain of salt, as your monitor settings and editing of the pictures are going to influence what you see here.

    2084 Super Garden Tractor won't stay running/gas vanished!

    I would have gotten one of the terminals for larger gauge wire and put the ends of both wires that need to be spliced into one crimped terminal, rather than trying to scab one on in the middle. I now realize you may have taken my schematic more literally than I had intended... Believe it or...

    CC 2185 Brake interlock switch

    2185 has completely different safety switches than a 682.

    CC 2185 Brake interlock switch

    It should be one of those, but if I remember right, neither one is actually mounted exactly where the parts diagram shows. It is a giant pain to remove, but easy to install. I worked on one of these a year or so ago and spent a lot of time cussing at that switch.

    Ammeter ?

    Based on those voltages, that is normal operation. Your ammeter may have gone bad.

    2084 Super Garden Tractor won't stay running/gas vanished!

    The install instructions for the pump require it to be mounted no higher than 12" from the tank outlet. You are probably borderline exceeding that. I'd make sure tank is clean, fuel lines are, good, etc. first before moving it though.

    Help wiring up electric fuel pump for my 2084

    I apparently didn't take any pictures when I did this, and the tractor is 50 miles away. Hope this will suffice:

    Help wiring up electric fuel pump for my 2084

    I just did this on a 2000 series with the same engine...the easiest way is to make a little adapter to plug in where the fuel solenoid connects. Just need a package of bullet terminals and a few inches of wire. I'd add a fuse to it as well.

    782d battery

    Key switch was on or you have a short somewhere. It should not do that, regardless of whether or not the positive cable was hooked up first.
