Default Who's the new guy?

My names Kyle from Southern Illinois. Just acquired a '76 1650 and a '73 147 with a tiller attachment. Neither run, I'm working on the 147 with hopes to use the tiller this year in my garden. Then get the 1650 going. Thanks for letting me be a member on your forum!

Thanks for all the welcomes! Here are my Cubs I'm working on. just got the 147 running cranks smooth and starts right away. First start up blew dust and dirt dobbers nests everywhere haha it probably hadn't been started in 18 years. runs like a champ. I have to get some tires now and give it a good cleaning. Will probably do a full restoration on it later this year. The 1650 will be next after I give my mower a tune up.

Hey Kyle. Before running the 147 any longer, take the top engine tin over the head and then start it up briefly so that the mice nest and debris will blow out. You may need to clean off the head fins and pull some debris out. You should do this to prevent your engine from overheating since it hasn't been started in a while. Otherwise, you could do some damage to the head and/or head gasket.

Welcome to this forum. Glad you are already getting your collection of cubs....2 still qualifies you to "rookie" status. hahaha We are always glad to have a new enthusiast in the forum!

Welcome to OCC Kyle you have some good looking Cubs there and the 147 and 1650 were both some of the best IH tractors.

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.
