Bought this with the hood needing refinishing, was passable but I'm a fusspot so the decals had to go. Like to find a site that offers just the long 'Cub Cadet' and '102' decals. Just those two decals. Any ideas?

Main reason for buying was there no evidence of ever having front/rear pto's, the thing is 56 years old and no hour clock. Clutch disc replaced. Needed more legroom, not much flexibility in moving the seat back so I raised it one inch and added length at the right foot support.,,,the neighbors girls called me Jack the Giant. Tee hee!

When buying, the mower worked but I never examined it, mistake, tension arm and spring for the idler pulley rotted away, no saving it. Interesting that the rust never permeated the mower deck and there was minimum rust on the dirty side. Also, for each blade, there was a tinny 1" deep semi-circular thingee (a mulcher?) that I removed. Re-did the underside with POR15 Metal Prep and POR15 gloss black paint, two coats. Slick finish makes it easy to hose-off grass clippings. Topside paint was glopped on, taken care of by orbital sanding. Rather than spray paint, got a quart of IH White and added epoxy hardener to it, long-lasting gloss makes it easier to hose away clippings. Spoke with a CC tech, told me to order muffler #393840R91. It a tad quieter than the oem, but still use ear protection. Anyone need wheels? I'm in Pearl River NY. Click on the pix for a better look.
Cheers, Jack

Digger has sets for 102 models for $77. (shop sponsors first). I would think you’d pay most of that for the specific ones you want. At least if I were selling them you would...those are the high demand ones.

Good luck in your search, and it won’t hurt to ask Digger if he has any loose ones. Well it might hurt, but only for a little while.
