Here is the procedure to access a wealth of information:
1) Click on the Forums tab.
2) click on Technical Forums:
3) Click on IH Cub Cadet Forums:
4) The first six threads are "stickies" and stay at the top of the list regardless of any recent activity. Other threads will have those with the most recent posts at the top.
Among those "stickies" are extremely useful threads and links to manuals, FAQs, Wiring Diagrams, History, and some better than new VERY cool creations. Spend some time reading the FAQs. There is a ton of info packed in those, including serial number locations, and identification breakddowns.
That parts link is the official Cub Cadet parts lookup site. Spend some time learning how to maneuver in that site as well.
Also, When looking for parts, first consult our sponsors, often referred to as "the colorful boxes above":
I just noticed something. Definitely not the hood off a 102. Note the forward slant to the front of the hood, matching the grille casting. 102 hood slants backwards, as the 102 had a different grille casting.
Combined with the fiberglass dash cowl, I still believe its a 1X4 1X5 hood and dash. The decals on it are for a 70/100 too.
Unless, I've got the dash cowl wrong. Might be the correct 106 one after all. Taking another look at the photos, it quite clearly looks as though someone swapped the hood recently as it does not match with the rest of the machine. There seems to be an abnormally, large gap between the grille casting and the hood itself, plus the hood looks rather far forward. Definitely something going on... perhaps the hood from a 70/100? This has me perplexed now.
