    Cream white color on dash tower

    The very first “Quality” lawn tractor I owned was a 1965 JD 110, 8 HP Kohler 38” cut 3 blade deck. Paid 500$ for it in 1979. All the ag tractor companies used to have a lawn (little brother) line. I’ve owned at 1 time or another the JD, Massey Ferguson, Allis-Chalmers,Case, and this 106 Cub...

    Cream white color on dash tower

    My cub has been repainted the wrong color at some point. this Krylon is really close to the original. I have been using it when I need to for things I fix as a “touch up”. If I were going to restore the finish all over I’d be sure to use OE colors. I’d most likely have them mixed at an...

    You can get complete wiring harnesses today. Maybe could have when I replaced mine wire by wire. Which ever way you go. These old IHC cub tractors are worth every penny you spend. Once they are “fixed” to anywhere near the condition of near new. They are truly something to be proud of...

    After that it was main drive clutch, PTO clutch, it ate deck drive belts. So mule drive rebuild. On & on, but after 3-4 years of fix this fix that it’s very dependable & has been almost trouble free for years.

    It would start & run just fine but wouldn’t charge battery. Turned out that was the wiring harness itself. NO bad parts other than the wiring itself. When I stripped the cotton off the bundled harness all the insulation fell off the individual wires & they were green & wanted to just crumble...

    The deck was in very bad shape, so that was the first major fix. Fab up a new deck & rebuild all spindles.
