8 26 2012 rusty bucket Cub cadet 72 001cub model 72
This poor old rusty cub sat outside for at least 10 years and was given to me by a friend . It is my first attempt at restoring anything . I am trying to keep it as original as possible, but did add headlights . Most worn parts ( and there were a bunch ) have or will be replaced . The K161 is dissassembled and appears to only need to be honed and new rings installed with new seals, bearings and gaskets . Most of the major components of the frame have been powdercoated with smaller details painted . I welcome feedback and look forward to doing many more restorations in the future .
