    Starting your cub in COLD weather.

    Unfortunately, my cub sits under cover but sees well below freezing most of our 6 month winter. It is way unhappy starting on these temps. Can't blame. I use thinner oil, the sin does catch it in the morning which helps. The bottom line is, do you have to crank and crank your 2 cylinder...

    Radiator fitment in 782

    Excuse my ignorance. Can I assume the 782D has a front radiator? Looking at a thread of a 1512, I see a front radiator, is the 1512 and 782 physically the same? Cut to the chase: I have a Kabota 3 cylinder gas at my disposal. I'm kicking around putting that engine in to replace my K17. Big...

    Starter Solenoid. Quick to fail

    When I first got the 782, there were many small things wrong. A biggy was; it was missing about 50% of the Harness. It had just enough cut and taped wires to Start the Engine. Not even the charging system was wired. The previous owner had a screw driver to jump out the Starter Solenoid. This...

    Increase hole size on Lift Assembly Cam

    I know you folks use a different name for this lift assembly on the Hydraulic Lift . Your vernacular escapes me. CubCadet 'Parts look-up' just call it a Lift Assembly. On the Cam section of this assembly where you put the Lifting rod for the Plow I have two holes. One is about 1/2" and the...

    Back up lights/rear floods

    Wondering what you folks have done about getting enough light behind you to plow in the night. Seems like it always snows at night and I gotta get to work early. The old Cubs have the seats high so hiding one under there is nice. For the later cubs (782) Putting lights on the rear fenders I...

    Hydra Tranis.. cold sensitive?

    Fluid is full although I do not know the age of it. New to me Cub.. no experience with Hydraulic tranis. Last week it was in the low 30's and I thought it was my imagination that I had to push the "Forward" control up a bit more before I started rolling. After a few minutes .I was sure it was...

    When I got the 782 from this guy, he commented on a few things. One was the Cover to the Points. He has two gaskets between the Cover and the Engine Block. he states that he heard that the cover hits and shorts out on the Cover. Any truth to this before I put it Right?

    782 Linkage Pics

    I got this tractor and although it appears all the parts are here according to '' parts list, it can't be set up correctly. The throttle lever has little movement before the linkage goes full open to full closed. The throttle cable bends around on what I would say is too tight of...
