    Regulator Help!

    Hey Guys...i’ve Run into a problem that has me stumped and I know it is probably something simple. I bought a 100 for my son Judge when he was 4 years old and “we” built it into a plow mule. Because of his age, mostly it was me and then his big brother plowing on it. Now he is 10 and is...

    Changing 48” deck bearings

    Hey guys, I posted more about this in the resto thread but dad’s 48” deck has a spindle that won’t take grease anymore and the bearings are starting to get loud. He took the cup off the deck but can’t seem to press the bearings out. Is there some sort of secret retention or just apply more...

    Declan—A 782 for mom!

    Hobby’s can often become family affairs. Each one of my children have their own GT as does my wife. My dad has three tractors of his own and me—well I have more than a few!☺️ My mom has been sympathetic to the hobby but not all that interested in it. However, when she saw their old 875 Wheel...

    Annual Heritage Farm Day

    Uncle Bob is going to have his annual Farm Day August 19th if it doesn't rain. For those of you that have attended in the past, you know it is a good time. They thresh about five wagons full of oats, we get to plow with our GT's as long as we want to, see hit and miss engines at work, and...

    582 plow tractor

    I know that I could post this on the main board since this is an IH made tractor but it has a later model Briggs I/C 18hp motor. I don't want to incite the wrath of the correct police So---my question is, do you guys have experience with the fuel pump/carb on these engines? This one has the...

    Archive through October 04, 2016

    Agreed Earl--one has to define the purpose for their tractor before making any upgrades (changes) to the way that the factory built it. Often it is easy to make a modification for one purpose that interferes with using it for another. If one desires to use a given tractor for snow removal, lawn...

    A "167"???--Caleb's Grizzly--in search of a perfect plow tractor!

    It's time to start a thread for my son Caleb's latest toy! It was originally a 1970 CC 107. I would guess about 10-15 years ago, someone went to great pains to create a really cool "restified" tractor. However, I'm getting ahead of myself... For anyone who has met me in person or has seen...

    3165--power steering issue

    Guys, as mentioned in a recent thread, I helped my cousin locate a used 3165 CC with about 650 hours. It is a clean one owner machine. As luck would have it, the second time he used it the power steering became so tough he couldn't hardly steer it. I told him to check the fluid in the rear end...

I want to make sure that we stay off the weekend for BC II because I'm gonna do my best to make it down for that! The...

    Symco, WI Thresheree--July 24-26, 2015

    Figured I might as well start a new thread for this event. I spoke with the contact guy about it and he said that he was excited to introduce this at the Thresheree this year. He said that he had the opportunity to GT plow a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. He has seven Cubs now and...

    The Perfect Plow Tractor?

    I've really gotten into plowing this year! I had a great time at Bluniers PD IX and I looked at a lot of different rigs that people were using. This could be a potentially volitle thread because I'm sure there are many varied opinions concerning this. That is not my intention. I would like to...

    The Chief--Dad's 149

    It is funny how things work out sometimes. As those of you know who have followed some of my other posts, my dad worked for Chief Equipment as a service technician back in the 1970's. He purchased his first home in 1975 and because it had an acre of grass to mow, he knew that he needed a...

    Original Plow Days?

    For those of you who have enjoyed some of the old slides that I've posted, I had to share this story and these photos with you. Keep in mind that this event took place in the late 1940's or early 50's and so if these were photographs they'd be black and white. That is one thing that I find...

    Info/ Opinions on the 3205 and 3208 CC

    Guys, I'm interested in purchasing a series 3000 tractor, and the Kawasaki powered tractors intrigue me. That liquid cooled motor seems to have a great track record except for the "plastic" cam gears. What about the rest of the tractor? Does it have the 15U pump or a newer(cheaper) version...

    The Horse Corral!

    Guys, I've seen some Horses wandering around the Off Topic section of the site and it doesn't appear that they have had a home, Until now! Horses find your way into the Corral! I am starting this thread in honor of my dad's first garden tractor, an 875 Wheel-a-matic Wheel Horse. Dad worked...

    KT Series I vs M20S

    Guys, I have a tired KT I in my 682 that I'm refurbishing. I've been watching for a Magnum motor to repower. I have seen a lot of talk on here about folks who have changed in the M18 in place of the KT engines. However an M20 has come up locally for a good price. I would really like to put...

    Case Tractors on the Fourth!

    My family has owned Case tractors since they came out with the cross motor tractors in the teens. My uncles have amassed a pretty good collection of the forties and fifties Tractors. They have begun to restore them now. This year we had one each of the letter series done to take in our local...

    Big Mower Decks- Opinions???

    Guys, I'm currently running a late model 54" deck on my 1772. It does a real nice job cutting and the tractor handles it fine. However, a late model 60" deck just came up for sale locally and I'm interested in it. The seller claims it is a Woods deck made for the Cub Cadet Supers. Is this...

    The "Cubbie" --My 682

    Well, I finally got to purchase a tractor that I've wanted since I was a kid, an IH red Cub Cadet. My dad worked as a service mechanic for a local IH farm dealership for about 5 years when I was a kid. I remember looking at those red tractors and thinking how cool they looked. I had already...

    Finally Got My Diesel Cub!

    Hey Guys, I've been looking at SGT's for a couple of years now and I finally found one that was what I was looking for. It is a 1772 that has just about 1900 hours on it. I purchased it from the original owner who had stored it inside and taken care of it very well. It has some nicks and...
