Hey guys, I have a question . What forum should I do the 301 mower deck restoration on ? Choices are : Cub cadet , garden tractor implements or restoration tips . As I see it Cub cadet would be for whole tractor issues . When I looked at the implement forum it didn't look like doing a mower deck restoration really fit there either . And the whole restoration process is more than just tips and suggestions . What do you think ?
Thanks .
Mike

Moved the 104 back into the garage today to complete a little more work ( is it ever done ? ) . Took some close-up pictures to show some of the details .
Thanks goes out to Weaver's sandblasting and powder coat , Maple Hunter decals ,Librandi's chrome plating, Red Rose screen printing , my nephew Jason who provided lots of help ( and a few parts ) along the way and of course the help I received here on GTtalk in the form of advice and praise . Thank you to everyone !

Great looking tractor Mike, I doubt I will ever get to your level of resto talent. I did have a question about how you were able to use the heavy duty throwout bearing on the 104. According to my research it doesn't fit on that model. I would like to put one on my 106 as I noticed that mine is trashed after a couple years.

I'll get the part number for you . Give me a couple of days . My nephew, who works at a local Cub dealer got it for me . Thank you for the compliment .

Good to see that Tony @ Maple Hunter is now offering the "correct" blue color in his decal sets for Cub Cadet. In the past the color was a dark blue ( I have a set on a 1250 ). Is that a NOS or NLA dash tin or decal? As always, beautiful work Mike...now, time to empty my drool bucket~

Thanks again for the compliment . The dash tin is a decal . I pursued restoring the dash tin but the cost was much, much more than the cost of the decal . Maybe one day ................!

Looks like the 703-0600 is the part you need . If you search www.PartsTree.com and put in 703-0600 you can get more detailed information . Or go to your local Cub dealer and ask them to look it up for you .

Thanks for the info. That part should be a lot longer lasting.

I checked on Partstree.com and it does not show that part being compatible with a model 106. If you are using it on a 104 and it's working ok it should work on mine as well I would think.
