It will be a worker but not a heavy worker, mostly mowing the lawn and moving wood around the property from time to time. If it fails after the rebuild I may consider doing an electric conversion if I can figure out the batteries. I figure it's the only thing that can match the torque these things produce.

You can't compare an SGT to a lawn tractor.

Electric conversion? Your out of your mind. That would ruin it. If you don't think you can get another engine that will be just as good as an Onan, your wrong. Sell it to someone else before doing an electric conversion. A 982 deserves better!!

I'm glad to hear your going to fix the Onan. Probably not the most economical option, but at least your fixing a great tractor.

If you are going to just mow and pull stuff around the yard, a repower with
A vanguard or command will be plenty. I repowered a 782 with a ch20 and
while it's not the torque monster the Onan in the 982 is, it's still got power
to spare. You can watch for a donor tractor and be repowered for less
then you think. Like J says a 982 deserves better than a rayovac conversion

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.
