$100! I guess that's 10,000 pennies :D . That was actually the best price I could find for a new one.

I need to finish getting the head ready to reinstall. I removed the head to see exactly what had been done to the engine. We measured the bore, and it has been bored out to a .020 oversize (not .010 oversize as I had been told, but that's ok). The head bolts and nuts did not all feel like they had been torqued the same and the head gasket showed sings of being blown (that's why I have I new one).

I still need to get a rebuild kit for my PTO clutch. I need the special tool to set the correct spring tension (another reason for buying the rebuild kit, as it comes with one).

I need to paint and install these engine tins (that's why I have the new mounting gaskets for the carburetor, as it will have to be removed to install one of the tins).

My big concern, is this fitting, as well as the transmission leaking. The fitting appears to be cross threaded. I'm not sure yet where all the transmission leaks from. I think it is coming from more than just the fitting. I can't say 100% that the fitting is leaking, but it definitely appears to be cross treaded.

The steering box needs work or to be replaced, but I think it can wait for a while, as there are more important things I need to fix on the 123 at this time. It looks like I will have to replace the front (PTO side) crank shaft oil seal, and maybe the back one (flywheel side). There may be other places that leak on the engine that will need to be addressed. There are other odds and ends that need attention (on the tractor, deck, and engine).

When it got here, I put new oil in the engine, new oil the transmission and rear axle, put a new trans. oil filter on, and added a new battery. It does run good and is fun to drive. I haven't run it for a couple of months (it's been apart for most of that time and I haven't had a lot of time to work on it).

Though it needs a lot of TLC (that I wasn't expecting it would need when I decided to buy it), I am still thankful to have a nice looking Cub Cadet GT. Once I get things taken care of, this will be a nice little tractor, well capable of doing whatever I will have for it to do. It could have been a lot worse. I just wish I hadn't paid so much for it.
