I am glad you got this fixed, Kenny! Like you, I have problems remembering to turn the fuel line on before I start it. LOL! Leads to many headaches when you forget.

Me too, Ryan. The engine sounds so much better with the new oil in it. Now to fix the deck 'brake' set up on this so the deck isn't turning all the time. There are a couple tabs that should have pads on them to stop the spindles from rotating when the deck is raised all the way up. I had an old brake pad that I removed from it's metal holder. I cut this to fit the tabs and affixed with JB Weld. I clamped these over night to set up. I'll get some pics this morning before I put them on. Hope it works!

I'd be interested to see how your re-line works Kenny. I have a friend who's husquvana mower has the same problem. The thing is you can get the right replacement pad (Bracket) but you can't get the left and of course that is the one worn out.

Mine are the same. I grabbed some pics this morning. They are installed. Thought I would wait a bit before starting it up, let the neighbors sleep in.

Kind of hard to see it in the last pic. I may have to do some adjustment to let the belt slip more. That green belt grabs the pullies real good.
I forgot to add the info about the first pic. These are the tabs with the new 'shoes' attached. When I dug them out, I found this JD lift assist I had gotten some time back. I will see if I can use it on the Cub.

The reline should work fine Kenny, I had an Uncle who relined his with a small oak block every couple of years.

I think this was a fairly good quality brake pad. I just hope it doesn't squeal too much. I'll know soon enough.

Those should work quite well. As for the squeal just put your ear pod's for the mp3 player in and you'll never hear it! :bigrofl:

I think a lot of today's music sounds like that anyways, might have to load up the Ipod with "Today's Greatest Hits" or something
