So in October 2020 We moved from a 3 acre house and property to a one acre plot. All of my cubs had to go as they would not fit in the new shed.
And as any cub guy would do, the search was on for new to me Cubs. I found a 1641 that was marking it territory with Hy-tran. That was the first project and is now dry and plowing all winter. Then came the 129. In Rubbermaid tubs. Many Rubbermaid tubs. And this is about the 129 project

So the front axle was reworked with a new bushing before I bought it. Everything has a coat of paint, although it is not all the proper shade. it was done with what was on hand. The lift shaft is in place, but I have one more spiroil pin to put in place. The dash tower has been started and has most of the PTO shaft and handle done. The front tire were tubed. The engine was just bolted in the frame. That feels like a major milestone. The hood and grill are all as one again and the headlights are in place.
I still have so much to get done and it feels like it is going at a snails pace. I hope it is enjoyable to watch.

So last weekend was doing more to get the engine put together. When I put it in the frame, I left the starter generator, carb, muffler and other accessories off to make it easier to move. Last weekend I got it bolted in and most of the accessories on.
