Back to the tube fitting for a moment, if you folks don't mind.

I stopped by the hoe guy I used for the 149/DanCo rebuild hoses etc. and he claims he can weld a JIC fitting to the bare end of the steel tubes for hose applications, allowing use of the OEM O ring fittings wherever needed.

Your Thoughts Jonathon??

Thinking of a PS app for the 149 restore, but I wish now, seeing as how it is 99% complete except for hood, grill and dash paint, I had explored this 10 months ago before I started the project!!

I would sweat ( silver solder) not weld fittings on the tube,--------
but a better way would be to flair the end of the tube and use a JIC fitting on the tube side and chose a fitting that would provide the correct end to correspond to your hose fitting.
Simple, neat and trouble free.

I've seen it done. It should hold fine. Personally, I'd braze or solder it, but if I had a TIG I'd use it. As long as there are no leaks, a welded adapter is fine.

Edit: George posted before me. I like his idea better. No welding. As a note, there are hydraulic compression fittings that can be crimped to a hose. They work fine in low pressure applications. I've used them. Not my preferred method.... but works.

(Off Topic)I do hate it when people use them on brake lines. Too much pressure... too risky. But, as long as they are tight, I've not seen one come off.

I have no idea as to which method of securing the fittings to the tube he was going to use. I will look into it more though, thanks guys!!

Then put a flair nut & sleeve on the pipe, and flair it.
Then use the appropriate fitting to mate to the flair nut on the pipe end, to the hose fitting, Prolly a union fitting like this,
but not sure without a pix of what you are trying to do.

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.
