Want to ride it some to see if anything else needs attention before working on clutch. I want to get a sleeve hitch and work my garden with it. I got implements. I probably want cut grass with it, but I want to get the mower workable just so I can cut if I wanted to. Larry, I'm about 40 miles south of Montgomery. Also got quiet a bit of slop in the steering wheel. Looks like someone put a bolt thru the steering arm.
Sounds like you may have a broken or missing clutch return spring and maybe a bad release bearing.. all common and easy to repair.. steering box wear is common also, but not a bad repair... I really like the 7hp tractors for utility work.. they are the smoothest running single cylinder K series. A little short on power for much heavy mowing but they do suffice. Keep us posted on your progress!

The clutch return spring was broke and just hanging down. I replaced it but didn't help with pedal. For now I got it pulled up with a bungy cord. It makes noise the first little movement of clutch pedal. When pushed further down, not much noise. I look thru the hole where the creeper lever would be and watch driveshaft til it stops turning. Then put in gear. I been riding it around in the field just about every afternoon. Been pricing the clutch parts on here and I see to rebuild the whole clutch assembly could cost more than the tractor.

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.
