Model 72 Cub Cadet back On wheels 003

Front view with new headlight panel . This Cub did not have headlights originally . The grille has been beadblasted, primered and painted aluminum . The engine will be next . I plan on removing the piston and rod , hone the cylinder and reinstall the piston and rod with new piston rings . There is no ridge around the cylinder top edge . Got lucky this time ! My next purchase will be the starter magnetic switch and voltage regulator and finish the electrical wiring . The mule drive is at the sandblaster/powdercoaters . The 48" deck is also there for sandblasting only so I can see what lies underneath all those layers of paint . I'll straighten out the bent sheet metal , send it all back for powdercoating and replace the spindle bearings after the parts come back .
I've allready started purchasing parts for my next restoration project ; Cub model 124 .
