    My ninth- 1980 582

    Can you detail the Command conversion? I'm interested in how the clutch situation is handled.

    982 headlight frustrations

    Yeah re-reading Mike's info again it is kind of hard to follow. If his lamp ground is shorted to voltage, when he put his jumper from the battery negative to the lamp negative side (again assuming the ground shorted to voltage) he'd be causing a short, but he didn't report that his jumper wire...

    982 headlight frustrations

    Isn't the 12v just crossing the element to the negative side? The diagram doesn't show any splices on the ground side of the headlight circuit so I'm thinking the ground is broken off or that ground wire has corroded somewhere and is now open. I'd just do as already suggested and run a new...

    The 48" and 54" decks have wide lift forks. I don't see them in that picture. I agree it's flipped but looks like the narrow 44/50 forks.

    The mule forks pictured with that 54" deck don't look correct to me. Those look like 44/50c forks.

    So guys, I pulled my garlic 3 weeks ago, and currently drying, and potatoes will be ready soon, so how do you store them for the winter? I got 24 cloves of garlic, my 1st year growing it. I should also have alot of potatoes to put away. How do you guys keep them?

    Bearing Noise

    Nope. But it can ruin more parts & the belt if you let it go.

    That thing has been listed for months.

    Looking at a 1650 today, any issues to look for?

    That is a very nice tractor! Grew up on one, Dad had one for 20+ years. Miss it sometimes.

    Cigarette lighter less voltage than direct battery hook up

    I bought one of those portable compressors, cut off the cig plug connector, and put alligator clips on it so I could air up a tire in my shed if needed. Sounds similar to what you want to do?

    Command 18 governor help

    Thanks Matt. I'm going to have to mess with it to see if I can figure out why it isn't working correctly.

    Command 18 governor help

    Anyone familiar with the Command twins? I put a CH18 in my 782 3 years ago. It's run good, but had a front cover leak, so this summer I pulled it and resealed the cover. I've reassembled the engine and started it, and it has no governor activity whatsoever. It will idle, but as soon as I...

    Gardens 2021

    Well, planted my garlic yesterday. I tried ordering from Johnnys Select as recommended here, but they were sold out. I ended up with a red and a white variety, both from Burpee. I think there was about 30 cloves of the white and 50 cloves of the red. Question I have: will chipmunks harass...

    New to me "sad" 782, so I will need lots of help here

    I have a y/w 782 out in the shed and I'm pretty sure the tunnel cover is yellow.

    Super steer axle question

    The late super steer casting is swept forward out by the spindles, and I believe all the swept axles have the taller spindles. They'd be on later cyclops tractors like the 1863 & 64. The earlier MTD casting does turn slightly tighter than the IH wide frame front axle, has a slightly wider...

    Dodge Charger Police Package

    Ahhh 10-4. I'm in ne IL. We do have a few customers that work over at the Belvedere (sp) plant that come in from time to time. I toured Belvedere in '07 and Kenosha (which is gone now) in '05. Both were pretty interesting.

    Cub cadet commercial

    You've got some valid points Oak. I got my hands on a 3000 series myself mainly from reading posts of yours here and elsewhere. But I don't think it went away because of the XT3, I'm going to venture a guess (also based on what I've read elsewhere) that they went away because sales numbers...
