Default 2182 - It was supposed to be for parts.

I picked up this 2182 at the dealer. Really only wanted it for parts. Started checking into the engine. Dang thing has great compression with 1750 hours! Now I am a ripping and a tearing, buying parts like they don't make them anymore, and bothering the h*ll out of Sam with questions ( Thanks for you patience, Sam). Not sure if it was a Lew price, but the deck parts alone are worth what I paid for it. Rehab costs will surely add up though. Fingers crossed.

The first task was to get it to turn over and then keep it running to do the compression test. Had jumper wires running every which way due to the dealer having robbed the PTO switch. With help from brother in law who is electrician, we got it running on the nasty gas in the tank. Then realized the float in the carb was stuck and was filling the base with gas. So, pulled the carb. Messed around a couple days with soaking it in Pinesol. Even managed to rehab the fuel shut off solinoid.

Pinesol results- Awesome! I put it back together and rigged up a temporary fuel tank. Put the jumper wires back in place and it was running thunder. It would shut off and restart without running gas into the base. This allowed me to finally get the compression check accomplished to determine if it was worth saving.

When I bought it our temps were in the teens. Had to drag it on and off the trailer. I feared the rear end was either slugged full of water and froze or potentially damaged. After sneaking it into the corner of the family farm shop ( I do not work on the farm) I was able to warm it up. Once the fuel issue was solved with temporary fuel tank. I drove it around. No power steering but moved well under it's own power. The rear dip stick reported nothing but frothy pink milk. So I pulled the rear cover knowing full well I would be drilling Sam's return holes soon. Strawberry milk anyone?

Then got to work dismantling the rear of the machine. Of course, one obligatory broken rear frame bolt.

Was able to screw a nut on the broken off rear case bolt. My brother welded it for me and it screwed right out! So now I have gone wild ordering parts and Xtrememotorworks braces and degreasers and paint and so on. Hope to make some major Progress this coming weekend.

You're off to a great start! Those WG-series Kubotas will purr like kittens when properly tuned. Keep the pics coming!

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.
