so a friend of mine has been wanting another garden tractor. so today i showed him a 129 that i found on craigslist. he called the guy up and offered him 2 guns, next thing i know were on a road trip to go pick it up. i think the plow is for a narrow frame cub not sure(pics would help to figure out what plow he has). it just needs to be painted and it should be as good as new.
whats the difference in a narrow frame cub and a wide frame? pics would be greatly appreicated

I was wondering what guns your friend traded for the cub. Seems to be an interesting prospect.

whats the difference in a narrow frame cub and a wide frame?

The wide frames are to accommodate the larger engines. Not sure how much wider, don't have a narrow frame tractor.

Do the wide frames have rubber mounts on the engine? I could be thinking of something different.

Nope. They just made room for the 12-16 HP blocks.

The later wide frames came with the rubber engine mounts. That would be the 1000 series such as the 1450's. The 129 did not have rubber mounts but is still considered a wide frame as far as I can remember. Nice tractor and can be updated to hydraulic lift if you have a larger tractor for a donor.

My 124 (narrow frame) has a 12hp in it?
