just picked up this 1967 125 cub cadet. its going to be a project for my 9 year old son and me. the tractor is complete with a deck. the only thing missing is the grill screen. it has headligts and a tail light. last night we started to disassemble the sheet metal. i have my first pile of parts going to the sand blaster today. i am having a hard time getting the instrument panel and steering wheel off. any tricks? i have all the obvious hardware removed. i'll post pics later, photo host websites are blocked here at work. thanks, -Ed

Welcome to site! Glad to have you! I look forward to seeing the pics. My 124 didn't have a grill screen, my dad and I cut a price of diamond plate and drilled holes into it to look like the international harvester logo, I will post pics of it soon.

Rust is usually the culprit. Soak it in some penetrating lubricant is my best shot. I just changed out a broken steering wheel on a '78 JD 316 yesterday, i took off the nut and let the spline shaft soak for a couple hours, then some light tapping with a hammer against a piece of wood on the bottom of the steering wheel did the trick. But my JD is not a cub, yours might be different. I don't know if it is just a nut holding it down. I have never taken the tower off of a cub before either. But, there are folks here who have. I'm sure someone will be along soon that has the experience. You might try searching old threads here on GTt answers. good luck!

I know the cubs have ross steering boxes, and I know some of the Deeres had them as well. It sounds like you have a ross in yours and all ross steering wheels attach the same, as far as I know.

here is a pic of my grill, its a few years old. The farther away from it you are the better it looks and the more you can tell what it is.
