    Trans oil change

    Bruce, FYI, the original posters questions were about a gear drive cub, not a hydro. By all means, DO NOT USE 30 weight oil in your hydro.!! I can only hole you did not!!

    AJ's Garden Tractor Jamboree May 18th 2024

    Nice show to attend but the plowing areas are very small, at least they were last time I went. If there are very many folks that want to plow, You will be lucky to make more than a few rounds before it's all done.

    To Rebuild or Just Leave As Is

    Use plenty of oil as it will help clean things out and suspend debris so they don't get puched through into the combustion chamber. In and out, in and out repeatedly as needed while chasing the threads.

    and don't for get the rod size needed after checking the crank it may need ground undersize if it is out of spec. If you are going to spend the $$ for a proper overhaul, do it right the 1st time.

    Everyone, I need some troubleshooting advise - 1450 starter "died"

    Got a test lamp? Use it on the solenoid terminals and the starter terminal. That should get you zeroed in on the issue.

    Tractor For Sale Shipping Cub Cadets via common carrier

    You will probably have to drain all the fluids from it. At least I know that pertains to transmissions etc. as I have shipped several and that was the case with those.

    New member with a decision to make.

    Josh, I have to correct my previous post from a few minutes ago!! The 1250 will likely have a standard manual lift, that is unless it was ordered with one. Don't know what the heck I was thinking!! The 102 will pull a 10" plow, yes. The 1250 has a manual lift as well. For a plow rig, a Cub...

    New member with a decision to make.

    The 102 will pull a 10" plow, yes but the 1250 has hydraulic lift and for a plow is very handy compared to the 102 w/,manual lift. If you plan on attending any plow days, the hydraulic lift would be my choice. There was a hydraulic lift option for the NF Cubs but they are very hard to come by...

    New member with a decision to make.

    Well for starters the 102 is a 10HP narrow frame gear drive unit w/manual PTO and manual lift and starter generator. Whereas the 1250 is a 12HP wide frame hydro with electric PTO clutch and hydraulic lift and electric starter. Does either one come with a deck and/or options such as a rear...

    Help with ID-ing Cub Model and Rear Hitch type?

    You would be doing more gouging in soft material and riding/sliding high in firmer material than actual grading I'm afraid. Dozing with a manual lift GT is not easy. There is a lot of inherent slop in the linkage that you will be constantly 2nd guessing. Good luck!
