Thanks for the compliments darkminion and Riley. Much appreciated.

I got the carb kit and sediment bowl gasket last night. FedEx delivered them both at around 8:40 so I did the carb rebuild as soon as I opened the packet. I will say I had a hell of a time unscrewing the brass fitting that goes up into the fuel intake port. It's the fitting that houses the brass needle for the fuel shut off in the bowl. Couldn't get a standard socket on it because of the design of the carb. Tried a metric socket and managed to barely fit it into the walls of the carb and backed it out, replaced it, and put the seals on. I've attached a pic of the valve Im referring to. This is NOT my carb. It is just a pic I found of one online for reference. Mine is MUCH cleaner.

I guess it isn't so rare to own a 126 and YT16 after all! It's pretty cool that we have the same little tractors though. I read that they only made about 5000 of the 126, so I would have thought it was more rare, but I'm glad to hear that I have good taste

I have good luck getting those out using a bit driver socket. It’s just a touch thinner than a regular socket and fits in there pretty well.

I didn't think about that... wish I would have. I'll know next time though. Thanks for the tip

Tires came in today. Hope to mount them tonight. Plan on mounting then taping them off then painting. Maybe they will be painted by this weekend. That should give me time to paint the hubs and let the rear wheel bolts set in some vinegar so they can get painted. Forgive me for still having the halloween decorations up... Cub work > Decorations

Thumbs up

I have a cheap 1/4” deep well socket that I use to get those “jet wells” out of the carb like what you have pictured. You just thin out the socket on the bench grinder and your good to go. So my problem is getting that jet well out of my 125. The previous owner had stripped it out so now it don’t turn out!! Keep up the good work on the 126!!

Got the tires on the rims after some choice words.

Can't get the dang things to seal to take air. I've contemplated using the ether and fire technique. Anyone against it? I usually try to stay away from explosive (literally) solutions, but everything I have watched on youtube and read about online appears to work great. Of course I will be safe and keep a distance. Thoughts?

Try putting a ratchet strap around the center of the tread. Tighten it up and it should push the sidewalls up against the rims so that you can start to inflate them.

Stand back very far and use face/eye/ear protection, if you decide to do the ether big bang method, but would highly recommend against doing that.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
