is this 1450 Cub Cadet. Goingto repaint it and it needs some mechanical work also. The battery discharges like crazy when the key is turned on. I think something is hooked up wrong. The engine needs some new gaskets,also. This is goingto be my snowplowing tractor for this winter, so I hope to get it done within the next month. I have a blade for it and I am goingto repaint it, also.Will keep everybody updated on the progress.

It looks like a good foundation to start with.

Well, I got it most of the way torn down this afternoon. Didn't really run into anything thay looks like it will be a major problem. Hardest part was getting the steering wheel off(as usual). I decided to take the flywheel off to check the stator. Glad I did;there was a mouse nest right next to the cooling fins. The stator looks fine, don't think that's why it discharging. I am goingto wash the engine. Will it hurt the stator if it gets some water on it?

Hood and grill off.

Fender pan off.

PTO switch was rusted solid. I have another one for it though.

I think a lot of the oil leakage is the coming from the crankcase breather.

Hour meter is in pretty good shape. It was working. Show's 260 hours, but its probably been around once or twice.

Getting ready to pull the engine.

Engine's out.

This was the worst ISO mount. They were all pretty bad though.

Mount's were so bad it wore a hole through the flywheel shroud.

Mouse nest right next to the cylinder.

Stator looks okay.

Good luck Levi.  It looks like you got a lot of work done already.  Plenty left ahead too.

Wow! that's a lot of progress for one day...I have had to stop & eat at least twice already. Looks like it's working out for you with no major problems. I just picked my 1250 up a few months ago at a steal. The PO said it ran fine then he couldn't get to start no more. At the price I got it for I didn't care. I found out the governor rod was broke so I'll be pulling the engine soon. Keep us posted.

They are a pain to do. Had it happen on a K301. Ended up tearing it all the way down to the governor gear,and managed to manuever it around the governor gear into place.Good luck with it.

Made some progress. Picked up some Iron Gard the other day. Already had the primer. I pressurewashed and sanded the rough spots on the frame. Wire-wheeled the fender pan. The top I took down to bare metal,but the bottom I just took off the rust and loose paint. Primer came out pretty smooth. Not looking for perfect on this one anyway. Goingto be a worker.

It could, but since you have flywheel off, you can blow it off with some air and let it sit for a few days to dry. Figuring it may be a little time before you get it back together and running, it should be plenty dried out.

 

Here's a pic of my Sears, it got wet and I ran it not knowing, burnt it up pretty good.

Did you paint it in the leaves? It's looking great so far.

Yep. Most of the leaves were off the trees, so there weren't any falling on the paint.Rather paint outside than in.
