I can't sleep so I decided to tear into the cub to get her ready for work. Here's what I've got so far....

It appears to turn a whole lol sharper to the left than right.

The gas tank has a crappy repair... No big deal I have plenty of tanks.

The dash tower is rusted bad and broken.

Tires are all junk. I have the new ags. I may have some fronts.

The wiring is a mess. This is no big deal either.

Battery tray is rusted out.

Engine has almost 2" of movement left to right so I ordered mounts.

Foot rest screws are bad stuck .

Sounds like a neat project. Can you shorten the link from the steering to the spindle and get the steering centered better. The rest of the issues sound like TLC time!

Some of these are set to turn tighter to the left for mowing around trees and corners.

My 682 turns quite a bit sharper to the left too. I actually left it that way after my recent refurb since it will come in handy when circling around trees and such. How is the steering box? They have quite a bit of adjustment on them. I tightened mine up and now it there is almost zero slop in the wheel.

 

So are you going to just clean up the rust, oil it and use it as a worker or repaint or what?

I don't know if it's the linkage or something in the steering box that's messed up. If it's supposed to be like that than hopefully I can adjust it to it turns equally both directions.

I'm going to fix what's broken and run it. As of now I don't have plans of selling it so it won't get a re paint. Plus I cant find good rattle cans anymore so I need to learn how to use a spray gun before I paint anything else.

Everything is fairly minor except for the rusted solid spool valve. Hopefully I can free that up.

How hard is it to change the motor mounts?

I believe there is a chain link connecting the lever to the hyd valve, I'll bet that's what frozen up.

It's the actual valve. With the tank out I can get right to it. A visual confirms it.

It is a bit of a project. It was easy on my 1100,but I had it torn completely down when I did it. Probably a 5-6 hour project. While you have it apart you might want to do this.http://cubfaq.com/isomount.html

Regarding the steering: you should have enough room on the drag link to adjust the steering to be equal. If I'm not mistaken you'll have to thread the drag link ends on further to do it. btw, the drag link and tie rod ends are all right hand thread which of course means to adjust you have to actually take one end loose.

I did this modification on a 1250 and it seemed to help. Can't tell you the long term results, because we sold the tractor.

 

All of my mowing tractors turn more to the left.    My parade tractors are set up equally. and have adjusted the steering box on each. 

Good luck on your project! :thumbs:         Rick

She will not be a mower so I want to equal out the steering. You said gear box twostep said linkage so do I need to adjust both?

Right where the screw driver tip is were its froze. I've got a 3 spool valve I may use since I want the soon to be 3ph activated from different lever than the mid lift.

Seat pan is off so I can clean around the hydro. Is there a place where I can add a sending unit for a tranny temp gauge?

The gear box adjustment is only if there is slop in it. The linkage adjustment I believe would be the way to center the steering.

Twostep is correct.  I should have been more specific.  Sorry.  You may be able to find something in the manuals section with illustrations of the linkages.    Rick

Linkage it is.

Ahhh I love having a tire machine where I work. The inside of the wheels look good.
