Just curious, is it a 982? The hood reads 782.
Posted May 16, 2013 - 10:35 PM
The hoods been changed ...all red 82 series cubs hoods will interchange 482-582-682-782-982-1282 etc.
The 982 has a longer frame and longer tunnel cover than the other 82 series cubs , thats the easiest way to tell a 982 .
Its actually considered a SGT ( Super Garden Tractor ) with 26X12X12 rear tires and larger 8" front tires
This one has the single brake/clutch pedal , but they came with the option of dual left and right brake pedals , dual hydraulics with front ports , rear PTO and Cat 0 rear lift .

Man I want an 82 series, but I got too many other projects. They just looks so much like the bigger field tractors to me.
That was a good buy

I didn't think it would last long , should be a fun and neat project .
I worry that somebody may have bought it to part , but hopefully not .

Well fellas, I bought that tractor... I even joined just to respond, I wanted you guys to know I do know the significance of the 982 and would never part one out no matter what the condition of it is. She is pretty rough but I can bring her back, it did have steer brakes at one time but has been removed for a while. In a perfect world it would have a rear pto, steer brakes, cat. 0 3 point lift and a 60 in. Haban deck, but I've been looking for a 982 for about five years and this one cheap enough and close enough to home for me to get. if ya'll want I can upload pics and progress as I go. I am all about keeping it original and not modifying anything in a non I-H fashion ( yes I am loyal only to I-H built Cubs) also thank you guys for confirming that I got a good deal.

Welcome to the forum! We'd be honored to see you bringing this back to the good life! Be sure to take some before pics!

Thanks FORDaholic, truck wise I am a Ford man too... even got a 79 F350 4x4 dually wrecker project going on too.
Twostep that frame actually had a half-dollar size hole torched in it he did not mentoin, fixable though. and I'll get some pics as soon as I get time, I revived a 782 last year(in family since 99) that went underwater twice ( creek flooded) and it was a mess bun she goes again...even better now as I converted the series ones into a series two. I'll upload pics of that one too soon.

Joe, always happy to help save any old iron I can .
Glad you got it .
Does the Onan run or does it need rebuilt ?
Luckily the 982 shares a lot of common parts with the other members of its red family .
I've got three 982's , two with there original Onans and one with a Kohler 20 Mag replacement .
Only one ran ( barely) when I bought it and it actually needed a lot of work .
the other two were missing engines although one was in parts in a bucket , the other came to me without any engine at all .
I find rescuing and restoring them very satisifying .
Below is a picture of Larry Curly and Moe .
If you need any help , let us know .

Thanks Jlaws, you sure are lucky to have those three handsome supers. Someone put a P218G Onan on mine, and after a little love she is running well. I took the tins off the enine and cleaned everything before I reinstalled it today. Apears to have very lows hours by the looks of things, I am happy with it even though the B48G would have been better for originalty.
There is plenty of issues to fix but what stumps me is the rockshaft is missing, I wonder why that was removed? The original ebay ad didn't mention many of the missing parts. I am pretty familiar wth the 82 series and this is going to take some time, but I finally have my super and that is a good start. Thanks again, Joe
