The 1100 was a 11hp briggs engine, the 100 was a 10 hp Kohler, size and weight I think the 100 is the better geared option, If I'm not mistaken the 100 was also a vertical shaft, in which case not near as good IMHO

 

EDIT : Sorry Guys where I said the 100 was a vertical shaft was supposed to say 1100, but that was wrong as well. Blind in one eye, cant see out of the other, your lucky you dont have to share the road with me.

1100's are really rare, 100 are real collectable, some well over 600-800, I would look for a 102 10hp or a 122 12hp , very cheap and even better for a puller model

Cub Cadet didn't make a vertical shaft garden tractor. Lawn tractors were the only cubs with vertical shaft on the engine. I also think the 1100 had a peerless rearend which is less desirable than the cast units.

your right the Briggs 11hp engine was a horizontal shaft, my mistake, I believe it was a first for cub to use a briggs in a garden tractor

If you can find a cub 3 speed it will fit into the 1100 frame as far as I know. They used the same frame as the 1000 and the 1200 models since its considered a wide frame. What class do you plan on pulling in? The wide frames are good for heavier classes and the narrow frames are good for up to 14hp since you can play with more weight. Im using a 1200 series frame for the diesel I just relocated the front axle and extended the frame a few inches for the radiator and fan to fit. But its all preference.

MTD didnt acquire Cub Cadet until 1980 after the 145/1650 quietline series, then they acquired the red International line of tractors in 1985, cubs had drive shaft way into the 1990s, some still do, might want to recheck that book.
