That is definitely a quietline engine. Its black,has different sheet metal,a gear starter,muffler box,coil mounted different. Still a cool Cub though. Always wanted a 169.

If it was one of the last built it could be a Frankenstein tractor built during the transition.

They were running out of parts for assembly during the production run of the 169. I just think looking at the wiring that is there, that this is a replacement engine and the wiring was butchered in the engine swap.

You're probably right, Brian. Sometimes I wish my 108 had an electric PTO.

The manual is much better, you can ease it in and it's a lot cheaper to rebuild.

I've had that sucker off 4 times adjusting it and it still burns the buttons up within a days usage.

Do you have any space between the button and clutch? I keep about 1/16" between mine, and when I don't have my on it that uses a belt I readjust it where the clutch is engaged all th time and the button isn't touching. I also use a brass button in the arm.

Yes there is a gap, it's when I want to shut the mower off that it eats the buttons.
