I fully agree, another great writeup but for a mechanic your hands are just too clean. Lol

Good mechanics don't get dirty. We work smarter, not harder.
Plus, I have some REALLY good hand cleaner!

probably one of those rubber gloves guys. and probably likes to snap them when he puts them on. like a doctor. just so you have to turn around to see who's there and what's going on.

Nice write up Jon. but how do I get that bottom screw out? and then that rubber seal on the points wire? you know the one? eh, do I need that? its all hard and don't like to fit back in the cover. and do I need the key on or off? does the clutch pedal need to be depressed? do I take it out of gear? if I leave it in gear the whole tractor moves when I roll the engine over. is that normal? I was holding onto the plug wire and got a shock. it hurt and then I had to pee. is that normal? some days I get so confused. is that normal. when I set the timing is it ok to spill a gallon of gas all over everything because the can I have holds 2 gallons and the tank only holds 1 for some strange reason?

but seriously it is a nice writeup

Don, That sounds like an enlarged prostate. You may want to see a doctor, or leave that plug wire alone!

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.
