I just sand blasted and painted the rims on my 67 cub Cadet 125. I forgot to take note, are the valve stems on the front rims supposed to be facing in, or are they facing out? My John Deere has them facing in. I want to mount the tires once. Thanks for your
Help.

My Cubs have them facing out. But if your hub is centered ( backspacing equal both ways) you could go either way. Some folks turn them in because they feel that way they have less risk of getting caught on brush. Are we gonna see photos of these up grades to the 125 ?

I know the "Original" Cubs have them facing out.And I think most of the earlier models did too.My 1980 482 even has them facing out.

not much....but its getting there. i'm still having a hard time freeing up the hydro. the shifter wont budge. i've sprayed it a bunch of times. i dont want to break the shifter. i'm going to detach the linkage below and try to isolate it.
