Thanks Roger. I have some time before the snow starts flying but I'll take your advice. All the best for the engine block bore job, these machines are well worth itGet a regular Cub Cadet belt for that thrower. Those FHP belts from auto parts stores just don't cut it. On my third seeason with thye belt I got with the thrower 4 years a go. Thrower is on a 1650 IH Cub. My 782 is waiting for a replacement engine block bore at the machine shop. Nice looking tractor you got yourself there.
