   Been looking for an 82 series Cub for a while now. This one came up on Craigslist about half an hour from me. Not a bad looking tractor. Has the series 2 Kohler or a series 2 air cleaner anyway. :rolling: Needs wiring done before it will run. Tested PTO clutch, works great. Pulled the plugs. Everything looks good. Has the side panels and came with a mowing deck. The biggest problem with it is one of the flanges where the starter mounts is broken off. Anybody ever had this happen? I will get a picture of where it busted tomorrow. Here are some pics. of it. They aren't very good,I know. Will get better ones tomorrow.

Levi, That looks to be a Great project. If you can get some pictures of the broken mount, maybe we can figure out a simple fix..

 

Congratulations !! :thumbs:

Very nice Cub, I also was looking at that one on C.L. Did he move on the price?  Either way seemed like a great deal congrats

Here's the pictures of where that starter mount is cracked. I thought I could drill a hole in the mount behind where it broke off and bolt a piece of steel onto it? Any ideas???

I'm not sure. It has a newer starter on it. I think the person I bought it from attempted to put the new starter on and cracked it somehow. Don't see how they could though.

They may have over tightened the bolts... or there could have been something between the starter and the mating surface when they bolted it back on... cast aluminum is brittle and doesn't take much to break it.
