Refurbished and put on some old headlights and mounted a switch next to the ignition for power to a tow behind sprayer. Also put in an illuminated ampmeter, I wired it up to light up with the headlights.

So, I picked up tires today for the 129 I got a couple weeks ago.. Now Why the hell people use slime, fix a flat, or any other crap in a garden tractor tire is beyond me. In a car, stuck on the highway with no spare.. Okay I get it. But this PO takes the cake I have never seen this much crap in a tire. Good new is I got the tires mounted just fine. I need to buy front wheel bearings but just greased them for now..

Maybe one of you Hydro guys can tell me about this. I started it up. Raised the idle to about half I touched the hydro control forward and WOW.. Damn thing did a wheelie. Glad I didn't push it all the way. I tried this a few more times and man that thing is way more responsive and touchy than my 1211. No funny noises, its responsive in reverse also. It really really surprised me though. It feels fine as I said. If I slowly engage it and go slowly faster and faster I can control the response. Is this normal on these older hydros?

Sounds like you might have to do a trunion rebuild.

Thanks for the direction. Will pull fenders and have a look. After reading some about the trunnion it does seem like the most likely culprit. I will take some pics soon. My guess is corners worn and possible spring.

Thanks again

I bet you find someone removed the cushion springs and made it solid.

Ok, That would make a lot of sense, I see where your going with this but why would they do that? Doing that I would imagine would be very hard on the hydro and rear end components among other things. Not to mention hard on your neck every time you start to move. I mean I could understand why certain people would think they can do this and have a gain but most people would understand the implications of doing this and not do it.

That's a very nice restoration; almost too nice to mow. I would love to talk to you about what you did with the pto and deck height arms. Mine have surface rust and the handles are cracked and sun bleached.

I think you severely underestimate the ability for "most people" to understand what they are doing. We've seen it on here a few hundred times. Some PO just finds it too difficult to repair the spring pocket, so it gets mounted solid. We've seen them welded, solid pieces jammed in, rubber hose in place of the springs....Lots of stuff. "People" are pretty ignorant really. Like sanding a crank journal with emry cloth to take out scuff marks from a seized rod and calling it "polished".

LOL, yeah, sometimes I guess I give people the benefit of doubt a little too easily. As far as sanding the journal by hand lol.. All that work for nothing.. What a shame. Too bad ya cant buy oblong bearings to match!

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.
