Back in the day, we put Necker Knobs on all the tractors/vehicles.
They have a valid purpose.
My first '40 coupe, had one with a pix of a "pinup lady" in it.

Talking steering

Tightening the steering parts makes a big difference. Ol'George, you are showing your age. Pretty soon you will catch up with me. Have a great day.

Mine is a worker too, but can't stand those stupid knobs. To each their own.

Looking to buy tie rod ends today- are all 4 right hand thread? Or am I missing something?

Thanks

Yes, they are. OEM part number: 923-3000. You can also go with aftermarket Heim Ends.

It's been a while since I've updated this thread, and haven't really done any work until as of Sunday.

Sunday I prepped the motor for removal to swap the flywheel shroud. The flywheel tin has been off of a 149 since I got it in ‘12 and it was time to change that.

Yesterday I did some wrenching on the tin. I pulled the motor with the aid of my brother's engine hoist (because he's got it so why not use it). The engine didn't come out too bad- the front motor bolts are in a really dumb spot but I got em out (and back in.) Even my little girl got in on the action- she's shoving a wrench into the flywheel opening. The worst part was trying to get the four phillips screws out of the screen. Lots of heat and they finally broke free. Everything went back together with anti-seize for when I rebuild the motor (next project) it'll come apart better-hopefully.


I like the location of the coil mount much better now. It's no longer tucked up against the sediment bowl with the spark plug wire in a weird location.

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.
