When we start to pull stuff out of the shed and spring gets here I will post lots of pics of the operation, during tillage and spring planting and the start of hay making season.


Thanks!!! I will do the same!

I'm having trouble putting the first half I scanned, here, so I'm going to put it in the manuals section under "Cub Cadet". If you don't know about the manuals section, look at the top of this page where it says "manuals". Click on it and then scroll down where it says "Cub Cadet". Then, after you click on "Cub Cadet" and it takes you to that section, there should be a spot that says "brochures". That's where I will put this brochure.

Actually, you will first click on "tractors/implements" before you click on "Cub Cadet". When you go to the "manuals" section, it is there under the most recent additions as well. This is an easier way to find it than how I first said. I will scan the other half tomorrow.

Do let me know if you find it. I will try to get the other half scanned and put on here today.

 

I have another question for you: do you have any restoration tips or advice for a new restorer.

I am not a professional by any means, but I have completed 2 restorations. my first was a 1967 cub cadet 123 rebuilt the
motor and took all apart , blasted and painted everything . Put back together, forgot a key element. I forgot to change the small 50 cent cork gasket between the hydro and the rear end. It would seep just enough to annoy a person. So I ended up splitting the tractor and replacing the gasket. Lesson learned. Make darn sure that all the leaks are addressed before a restore. I also learned to take your time. and really concentrate on the prep work. sanding , blasting, priming etc. I will dig up some restore pics today and post.

Those brochures are really neat.  I really like the cultivator section.  Does anybody still do that?  I remember as a kid learning to cultivate on the 1952 John Deere B  in first gear as slow as the tractor would go.  2 rows at a time.  Later Dad got a 4 row front mount on the 720 Diesel John Deere on that one you could pick up 2 rows or all 4 rows , really neat for point rows.   I never got to run the rear mount,  Dad got it after I was grown up and moved out .   funny how times change.
