    Pair of 1450's just got last week.

    thank you for all your comments and help on the HVC. sad to know the 0066 is not a one of a kind, but life goes on. i guess having a 108 Garden Special is my one off. not sure how fast this will be a restore conversion as not retired yet, just tired, so they may sit in the shed for a while...

    Pair of 1450's just got last week.

    just picked up a pair of 1450's last week. not sure what the plan of attack should be, all though i have time. the 4/75 is running, needs battery, hydr lift lever, muffler box, side shields. the 9/78 has no engine, but rest is there, however, the battery box is real bad. i am debating of...

    the Safety gas cans, pain

    i have seen people use the golf tee's before, but did not really believe sealed 100%, and as far as cheap, they are less than a buck, so add w/your next order from Charlie. drilled the 1/2" hole, snapped if really tight and worked just like the old ones.

    '74 108 Garden special, has anyone seen this before

    UPDATE: I finally tracked down a gentleman that not only was the owner of an IH dealer that sold Cub Cadet, was on the CC dealer advisory board. Yesterday I spoke with him and he said he probably not only set it up, but also sold my tractor to the original owner before the dealer I work for...

    Paint for a Original restoration.

    the iron guard paint from CIH is very good, whether a restore or just to touch up to keep and work. it may be a little more money, but worth it in the end. i painted my trailer i built w/it 20 years ago and very happy w/how it has lasted.
