Welcome Robert! What part of Virginia do you live?
I refurbished a 122 a few years back for my dad.
If you are not too familiar with cub cadets, make sure you take plenty of pics and label everything. Put small items, including bolts, in ziploc bags with a note stating where they go.
That way you will have a reference when you put it back together. Patience is the key to a nice job you will be proud of.

Robert - welcome to the best Cub Cadet Forum on the internet. Your 122 is a great tractor. If you get the opportunity to cross the border I wouldn't hesitate to visit Marty in NC to really see what a restored machine looks like. This Forum will be a great source for information but seeing Marty's 122 (as well as his others) and getting his advice can't really be beat.

Welcome aboard, Robert. I am located in Madison.
You will find a lot of diversity of Cub Cadets on this site. One thing everyone like to see photos...
