I am going tomorrow to look at a 1960's cub cadet 100. the fella wants $200.00 for it. It is suppose to run great but has a little leak at the crankshaft seal. It has no attatchments, but i want to get back into pulling and just wondered if you guy's could tell me if the price seems ok and what you think of the 100's.   Thanks.

That is a pretty good price for a 100. I had a 70 once,which is a 100 with a 7 horse Kohler instead of 10. I really liked it. The crankshaft seal shouldn't be a big issue. I did one on my 122 in a couple hours. Do you happen to know if it has fenders? If it does $200 is a really good deal!

If it runs good than 200 is a no brainer on the price.  In parts you can get that much money back out of the engine alone.  Like LTD said if it has fenders thats even better as they usually fetch 150-200 in themselves.

Well, i picked up the cub 100 today. Looks a bit rough but starts and runs great.I ended up getting it for $150.00. Would anyone know if that is what the seat is to look like, and if it is infact a 100 and not a 70.Also where do they hide the numbers on thease cubs. I'm just not sure what year it is.

The seat is incorrect.  It should have a pan seat on it.  Since it is a 10HP its a 100.  The only differences between the 70 and 100 was the engine.  I would say going off of the 100 decal on the hood that it was built as a 100 and not a 70.  As far as the serial number goes it is hand stamped into the transmission housing on the right side as you sit on it.  It should read from bottom to top.

 

I'll show you a picture of my 100.  I took a little creative license on my paint scheme and did it to resemble a newer CASEIH tractor.  I will admit on mine that it did indeed start its life as a 70.  I bought it as a roller and put the 10HP in it and did my modifications and repaint at the same time.

Looking at the head bolts, you have a K241- 10hp  Kohler.

 

If you download this manual, it will show you the info on your engine.

 

Page #9 shows the head bolt layout.

It doesn't look bad. The hood looks to be real nice. Even has the bird on it. Worst thing is the frame I think. Is that a crack in the frame or did somebody torch it?

You did a real nice job on your cub. So i guess i'll be on the hunt for fenders and a seat.The thing that confused me about being a 100 or a 70 was the numbers didn't look right

The crack is not on the frame , it's just that cover. some people shouldn't be allowed to own a torch. Anyway the frame is solid

Thank you very much on the compliment.  It was a lot of hard work to make it that way.  I upgraded a few things as well as repaint it differently.  The front axle pin I removed and replaced with a grade 8 bolt that I center drilled and tapped on the end for a grease zerk.  I also took the steering wheel from an 82 series Cub Cadet and used it on the tractor as well.  Yours will look nice with fenders on it.  Mine did not have them either as they were an option from IH on that series.

 

 

The crack is not on the frame , it's just that cover. some people shouldn't be allowed to own a torch. Anyway the frame is solid

 

Do you intend on cutting that part off and adding new material?  That piece is spot welded to the frame rails and is an integral part of them.
