I recently inherited a 1965 Model 100 that is 100% original from my uncle who bought it new. I do have the original seat which I plan to put back on. I put a set of fenders and wheel weights on it. It needs front spindles, and pitman arm, as well as the throttle shaft that the butterfly screws too. The bracket that the cable connects to has come loose from the shaft and has a lot of play in it now. Any suggestions on where to get parts? I would like to find some original HI bolts for the fenders also. I plan to use the tractor a little for a while and probably restore the entire thing in a few years. Thanks for any suggestions.

 

I also have a Brinly plow and a cultivator for this that I am excited to try out.

I happen to agree with Jack; I wouldn't worry about restoring it.  It looks too good as it is.  The original paint/original condition tractors are getting scarce, and (in my personal opinion) a little character from use really appeals to me.

I love the 100, some thing about the looks of them. That's in nice shape.

I love pretty tractors as much as the next guy.  I gotta agree with the other guys on this though, that thing is absolutely BEAUTIFUL for an original machine.  I would let it the way it is maybe just a little wax or polish.  They are only original once.  It's your's to do as you wish and if you do paint it (maybe for the fenders and weights to blend in?) it will look better than new I am sure.

 

Parts for them can still be purchased through servicing Cub Cadet dealers.  There are also many aftermarket dealers that sell parts for them.  Some of the vendors for parts are even here on the site.  Good luck with it they are an awesome machine.  

 

Here's a pic of my custom painted 100 loaded down ready to push snow a few years ago.

Wow you have a lot of weight on that thing. My original plan was to keep it all original, and I still might. The big reason I was thinking about re doing it was just because the fenders do not blend in would a new carb, and spindles. I have found places that have spindles but non that have the pitman arm. Thanks for the compliments every one.

300 lbs off the back and 52 on the wheels.  Even without chains it will push a lot.  Put the chains on and its near unstoppable.
