Trust me, you do NOT want to do this. You should at the very least get the chassis mount rubber kit. Those mounts are supposed to be HARD rubber.

I have to agree with Grey531,

When I tear one down and mic/measure (or whatever the case) EVERY part, replace every part that has even the most minute amount of wear, strip it of ALL paint, rebuild the motor, with ALL new factory parts, factory wire loom, Blah, Blah, Blah, until it is in EXACTLY the same condition (or better) than it was when it left the factory, THEN I will have a RESTORED tractor (or anything else for that matter). But when you see one on Epay that says "restored" and you can tell that someone washed it off, sprayed paint at it and slapped some new decals and a new seat cushion on it, THAT is NOT a restored tractor.

I think that if you have something that you have spent time working on and made it the way you want it to be, then that is something that you can be PROUD OF.

None of my Cubs are perfect and probably never will be... at the same time, I'm not really very proud of the ones that I haven't put very much work into.

I guess my point is that I've seen a lot of pictures of Cub Cadets here on this sight that you can tell that someone has spent a lot of time (and money) on and I think that these guys should be very proud of their accomplishments... It isn't just anyone who is willing to undertake such a project, and my hat is off to the people who have enough love in their heart for an old tractor, to bring one back to life or even just clean one up and make it better than it was before.

This is a pretty good group of people here and we all have a great bunch of little tractors and if you have stones enough to make one better than it was before, then you SHOULD be proud of what you've done!

In my humble opinion...

Guys, My name is Mark. That's a very good idea. You guys can ask about a particular problem and those of us that have restored can suggest some solutions. Your tractors are in very good shape from what I have seen. The pitting isn't that bad. There are a few ways to do this, some better than others. The best is to sandblast , then hit it with an etching primer followed by several light coats of filler primer. Sand between each coat. For really deep pits ,a light coat of bondo or filler of choice. If you can't sandblast but do have a compressor, then use a D/A with 80 grit.

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.
