Very Nice!! Are those Firestone tri ribs on the front?

Yes they are. Love the look but some guys at work told me they will tear up my lawn. Time will tell I guess.

I put a set of good wheels and tires I had from a 1641 and put them on the 100 DieselDoctor gave me so I could move it by pushing it. The tires that were on it leaked faster than my air compressor could fill them.

This tractor will be my next project.

Default Working on beater 122

Replaced the rusted seat with a Agri-Supply padded pan seat. Good buy for $31. (NC folks will know Agri Supply).

Installed hitch pin in the tow ball platform on the rear end and used it to drag the yard cart around and get up branches scattered by Michael

Found a couple hours that were free so did a little more work on the 105. The grill screen was missing and the only replacements I found were some what pricy so I made one. I think it looks good not like the original but the price was right, Free!.

I set the dash and hood on to see how they looked. They only have one coat of paint. For some reason they look very white in the photo must be the lights. The color is the off white I got from the dealer. I wet sanded and got another coat on them.

So on to the motor. I made up a stand to bolt it to and put it on a cart to start cleaning it up. I started to take off the tins and other bits. I learned a couple of things. The drive cup is very easy to break and they are expensive! I looked online and found some new ones and couldn't believe what they want for them. I did find a good used one for 40 bucks so I ordered it. Got a head gasket and some other gaskets to. So fast forward to tonight. I was out moving some stuff around in the shed and guess what I found in a box of parts I got with the 3 cubs I bought, that's right a perfectly good drive cup! That is how my luck goes. Oh well I have a spare for the next project.

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.
