Hello everyone,
Just picked up a 127 like the one my grandfather had in the 70's. After reading the articles on this site I began the restoration. I took the deck off and have mostly finished it. just waiting for the weather to cooperate so I can finish the paint.

My tractor has a black motor, but every other one I see here have yellow motors. My question is did it come this way? The heat shield is the same black. (pictures are on my profile)

WELCOME!!!
Love to see some pics.. The engine would have been yellow. Could have been rebuilt or swapped at some point. What does the ID tag say on it?

Welcome. Replacement engines were black. Not saying it is, but I’ve got a couple that I know the history, and they were both black.

Welcome. First old cub I ever fixed up was a 127. Keep going you’re doing well. Ask plenty of questions and you’ll get plenty of answers.

Yep, replacement engines were black.

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.
