    1450 hydro line replacement experience

    Ok, so I'm open to the possibility that I did it wrong, although I maintain that if it works, I'm happy. Also, I was honestly not trying to brag, just share my experience. Respectfully, I still think I'm right. We're talking about 37-degree JIC fittings. Some light reading on the history of...

    1450 resto

    Hey Steve, Good meeting you yesterday when you pulled up to compliment my broken down 1450. Looking through this thread is giving me some inspiration for sure. I'm thinking upgraded wheels/tires might be in my future! Looking forward to seeing more progress on your project.

    Hello All

    Hello all, I'm the proud owner of an IH Cub 1450 that I rescued from my father's barn. I grew up mowing two acres every week and now I'm trying to keep it running long enough to teach my girls. So far I've replaced a blown head gasket, replaced the carb and fuel lines, and completely...
