I agree with what Beth & Jon have said.

Yes, you should have it bored and all the other good stuff.....

If you break into an Onan you best plan on spending some coin.

You will probably need new pistons, rings, rods, cam bearings, probably crank bearings, have the crank turned, all gaskets and then have it bored to do it properly. That will probably set you back near $1k.

Or say WTF and throw a set of $60 rings in it to see if it runs. Ya, it might be half a$$ed but if it runs okay then maybe you can plan on a full rebuild.

$1k is still cheaper than buying a new Kohler, Vanguard or Hazard Freight Predator engine.

Sorry...that is my

All good and convincing information. I donít have that kind of jack to throw at it so this project is over. I was under the impression all I had to do was break the glaze and throw some rings in it if everything else was pretty. This is why I was throwing in the towel on it, and Jonathan said I give up too easily. No, I just donít want a money pit. Because of this I decided to just run the M18 in it for now until it needs a rebuild and go for the full rebuild with it when the time comes or repower. Iíve got in and all hooked up except for a relay for the ignition relay to kill the engine with the old points/coil power line to ground out the coil to kill the engine. I have the relay and know how to use it, I just need to pick up some connectors to make that all happen. That was the original plan I was going to do and Iím back to that. I can return the ring and gasket set, so no big deal except Iím out shipping costs.

The 1912 with the M18 installed runs and sounds beautiful. And I like how the 50Ē deck cuts.

Temporary relay wiring, I want to get a socket to plug a relay into and wire it properly, as well as a three prong plug thatíll fit into the engine harness for the 12v, magneto, and oil light to make it look more professiknal.

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.
