ok so I picked up a 782 today for mowing duties. it came a little different than the photo ( i actually dont think it is of my tractor) but it runs good once the battery has enough juice to start it. I will be putting a new battery in it in the next couple of days and will get some real actual pics of it. It came with a total of 4 wheel weights 2 on each side, and runs like a champ. The hour meter is showing 146 hrs but it is anybodies quess how many are actually on it. No smoke on startup and only a little puff when I engage the deck at idle. hydro lift doesnt lift very high but I will investigate that later. paint is in good shape and both guages work. I will however be looking to pick up a new gas cap/gauge as the top it broke off and I'm sure it would let moisture in the tank if It sat in the rain. and the front tires are shot. I will be taking the brand new ones off of the 129 for it and probably parting out what I dont need off of the 129. the diesel motor in the 129 will go in my puller and eventually the z482 will go in the 782 here for mowing duties.

Congrats!  That's a great tractor you got there!  And you got wheel weights with it too?  Looking foward to seeing the pics.

What motor is in it?  Sometimes they had a Kohler KT-17 in them.  Or a KT-17-series 2.  Keep your oil level full plus.

For a temporary fix you can caver the gas gauge with the bottom of a PEPSI bottle (coke wont work)  A little trick I was given by a Cub Cadet collector when i bought my 782.  This forum is addictive!!!  I actually when out to the shop in the rain to get pictures.  I should be on my way to work!!  Rick

It has a 50c deck on it. But i have a 44 off of the 129 i can use too. And i will probably end up pulling it in the 1100lb off the lawn class. Hopefully with the deck still under it just because.

Fine looking cub! Tin's look nice and straight too.

 

The KT-17 can be ID'd by the air filter cover and by a badge/sticker on the fly wheel cover. It's kind of hard to see but it should have a sticker like seen in this picture:

$2800 for a new engine? No wonder so many of them are out there with no motor!

Yeah, I saw that. You could do this twice for that price...
