Yeah I considered the harness from my donor (a 2185 or 86, I don't recall now) but it just didn't seem like the fitment to my tractor chassis was that nice. That said, my modified harness isn't all that great either, but it's worked and been reliable.

That is a nice looking 1711. Don't see those too often.

I'd assume the "oil sentry" would kill if it loses pressure anyhow?
In the event of low oil pressure, the engine does not shut down on these. The light on a 1811 and newer is a nice addition, but I went a step further on my tractors. I added a mechanical oil pressure gauge made by Stewart Warner. That way you know exactly where the pressure is and if there is an issue that otherwise would be unknown with a lamp that illuminates at 5 psi or less.

Looks nice. The oil Sentry on the donor engine doesn't kill ignition? It seemed to indicate so. I'd be using a new (period correct) lamp on the existing trouble light.

Thanks. No, just a renumbered 782 but decent. Just wish it had front remotes (1712)!

Mainly want to try out that snowblower.

Got the engine and harness out yesterday. Looks like the 1711 engine driveshaft coupler will bolt right on, and with some luck I can get it close enough to attach.

That leaves the wiring being my last hurdle for now...I'm planning on keeping the keyswitch, but would really like to use the original style PTO switch vs the clunky yellow variety. This would be fine, with everything but the brake sensor. I'm wonder if I simply swap the N/C and N/O wires I'd get lucky without ill effects, but I haven't thought through it quite enough to be sure of that yet.

Well, made some progress this morning. Unfortunately, I've reached the conclusion from dry fitting the engine that the driveshaft will have to be extended about an inch and a quarter. Even if I could move the tank/bulkhead back, it would still probably be too tight and the airfilter cover would be unremovable.

I bolted up the rag joint coupler on the engine after fabbing up about an inch worth of bushings to push it out to the thickness of the engine's original coupler, leaving room for the driveshaft to stub through the pilot bearing.

I also got the driveshaft and tunnel cover out, and plan to decide the engine's final resting place (with new muffler on) and then make the shaft fit. Also, after it randomly started leaking on me, I've decided the quarter turn oil drain is going goodbye.

Ordered some $2 motor mounts from NAPA that should take a bit of vibration out. Might cut them in half to stop the engine from raising too much. Just got the muffler on, and will test fit the grill/hood with the engine's front mounts in the rearmost OEM bolt holes. Will have to mark and drill 2 more holes + oil drain egress.

Muffler is going to take some considerable re routing to get out the front left, let alone right like OEM.

Stay tuned.

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.
