I guess the CCC thread has been incorporated into the IH Cub Cadet section as I don't see the CCC thread anywhere??

Getting it ready for you know what!!
Had bought a block heater for it when I got the Cub several years back and just got around to installing it. Took a little mod for clearance, see pic's.
Installed new bearings in the fan drive shaft as well as new belt, air and fuel filters while we were at it.
Installing the 42" power angle blade again for this winter and removed the ag tires and installed the weighted & 2 link chained tires plus the weights which totaled about 150 lbs per wheel.

That bearing bracket looks to be homemade or did they change at some point? First pic is one off of my 882, 2nd is from my 1572.

That is what I'm looking for. Do you have more pictures of that set up and the routing of the hose to the upper and lower rad? Did they run from water pump over engine like in Kraig's picture ? How does the lower rad hose get from other end of engine to lower rad ?
I think I could make a bracket like that for fan?

The outlet for the rad goes down and back along the frame on the starter side.

You added a block heater - did you find it improved your starting in cooler weather? I know it helps on the larger farm tractors - I guess I never understood why these engines can give guys a hard time starting? I made sure to p/u a good battery for mine, think it was 850 or 900 cca.

One thing I learned when working on my 1512 CC was the basic engine is Kubota industrial. For those parts one needs to go to an industrial engine place that has the Kubota franchise. Tractor dealers do not have access for parts for them. All the external features like the alternator mounting, fan bracket, idlers, etc. is all MTD ad on items and most NLA, not even the idler pulleys. That fan belt is an "A" belt. (3/8" wide)

As for starting, change the glow plugs over to full 12 volt glow plugs. OEM are 8 V and the glow light resistor sucks up 4 V. By pass the glow plug light and wire the 12 V glow plugs through a separate starter relay direct to the battery. Update the starter to the gear drive starter. In cold weather use a battery booster as there is not room in the OEM set up for a large enough battery to run the glow plugs for a full min. and have enough left to turn the engine fast enough to start it.
This from my experience. Most of my information came from the Kubota web site.
