    Cub Original Wheel Weight Color

    Had a question about the proper color of wheel weights for a 1961 Cub Cadet serial number 15766. Red or. Yellow? Or hard to say? The mower deck on this Cub was all white, so I didn’t know if this was considered an early Cub.

    Original Cub Headlights Pulsating

    I just installed headlights on my Original and they pulsate at high rpm speed. I have a new voltage regulator and wiring harness. I haven’t checked my starter generator on the output. Maybe not a proper ground? I’ll be digging more into this tractor today, any advice would help.

    Digger- on my Cub 147. Marty- It’s not locked up. Each spindle takes plenty of grease, comes out of the bottom and top. When leveling from front to back on the deck, I am a half inch off. The center deck blade is off by that much, and you can see it when looking at it.
