Thanks Wyatt. I've finaly got a schedule for construction of my first home garage. Looking forward to restoring a mod 70. Sandblasting looks like the route to go. I did take a peek at the electrolysis method in the archives and that looks interesting especially for small pieces.

Dave K2,

I have some detail shots in a higher resolution for Kraig. I will e-mail them off to him tomorrow.

He ran a drive shaft from the rear of the first Hydro unit to the front of the second one. The linkage is set up similar. With the rear hydro being controlled by the front one. I didn't get a good picture of the linkage. I did tell Gene about this board and Plow day this fall. I mentioned that he would be welcome and see a whole lot of Cubs.

The CPE-2 section J P10 shows the springs are the same IH-485298-R1 for wide and narrow frame.

I am not the sharpest plow in the field when it comes to computers. Can anyone tell me if there is a search engine for the archives. If yes, how do I access it. I hate asking questions that I know have already been answered several times.

David,
At least you dint ask the question I was asked the other day and I quote,

"Hi, I wonder if you could tell me if I have to fill the gas tank all the way full before I start my 127 to mow my yard."

I talked to Gene for a little bit before he left this morning. Turns out he lives just a couple of mile from my Inlaws down in Ottawa, and he has quite a collection of cub cadets. I guess that explains why I never see any around when I go to visit... :)

Like Tedd said, the output of the first hydro goes to the second, and he just tied together the linkages. No brakes on the back axle, and the battery is all the way in the back. He said it started out as a gear drive (108?). It was very nicely done.

Charlie,
I was actually looking for this;

But I saved the text and pics you sent me for future reference. Thank you.

Wyatt,
On your setup, did you have to add a collar for the grease seal to ride on? Or did your hubs have the a seal with the same 1" ID as the bearings?
Most of the hubs I have seen that use 1" bearings
use a 1-1/4" ID seal.

Is there a cross reference list that might help me with a mower deck. The only numbers that I find on my mod. 70 are 473415R1 molded into the deck. If I measure the widest part of the deck I get 47 inches so I thought it must be a 47" deck, or is that just some kind of casting information?
I was talking to a fella who say he has a 42" mower that measures 44" at the widest part. I ran out to the yard and measured my mod. 70. I appears to be 42" at the farthest on the blades and 47" on the top. Something doesn't add up.

Mike-
What's the white lever on the two-engined 100? Looks to be some kind of intermediate clutch or something?

By the way..
Did you recently repaint that 14hp Original? It looks good...

Todd-
I used a plain steel spacer (something like 1020CD bar) turned and OD polished, it's a pretty tight clearance fit to the spindle, loctited in place.

I ran the spindles on my 169 for well over a year, maybe close to 2. Since the setup's done being shook down, it's the setup now on my project tractor. Inspected all the parts recently and I couldn't find wear anywhere, the spacers hadn't spun at all, the loctite's holding well.

Glad to see that some of you guys made it to The Sycamore Show. Not too much of the Cub Cadet kinda' show, but they are squeeking in there. I had to work Saturday, but did make it today. Forgot my camera, but it looks like the Cub Cadet pix made it here.

Tedd,
I see from the angle that you took the Steam Traction engines pictures making the first turn that you were hanging out by the scale model trains. What did you guys think of the show??

Spent some time wiring the Cub project this weekend. I got it all buttoned up only to find it wouldn't start. Pulled the plug to check for fuel and spark. Fuel I've got, spark - I no got. Then it dawned on me - I left the keyswitch in it that originally came on the Vanguard V-twin that I pulled out of the tractor. The Vanguard is a magneto ignition and the Kohler is a battery ignition. I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure that the switch isn't sending current to the coil. All of you who know electricity better than me (which is everyone, including the newborn pictured just below...) are welcome to chime in here. If I'm right, apart it all comes so that I can change the switch. If I'm not on the right track, it'll save me a bunch of time if you redirect my efforts.

Thanks in advance.

Keith If you don't have a volt meter couldn't you temporarily put a jumper across the suspected bad switch to simulate turning the switch to the on position?
