Which one do you like best?  I think the second choice would look good. What do you think? Neither one would look bad.

Those would look nice. I think the Firestones would look nice together.

Personally I would go with the V61's.  Dad had a set of those on the 1572 that he has with a set of firestones on the back.  The wide tri ribs always look more like balloon tires to me and some what out of place unless they are on a super garden tractor.  Really it comes down to which you like better.  I would also suggest checking out Tucker tire.  They have good deals on garden tractor tires, I bought the rear ones on my Massey 12H and all my tri ribs through them.

Wow you was right they have a package with the rear tires and front tires after shipping it would only be $200.

It been a long week went to san antoino to sell at the Christmas Showcase and the guy left us had to call my BIL to pick us. Haven't got one thing done to the cub this weekend but found problems.

 

Problem #1

It leaking oil a little bit from here. It looks a little overfilled with oil could that be the problem ? (I cleaned it before pic)

Problem #2

The dipstick is chewed up I can't remember it being like that the last time I checked the oil but there is no metal flakes in the oil.

The oil leaking from around the governor shaft is normal (especially if it has the original bushing) (the bushing that screws into the engine on the outside). There is no seal for the governor shaft. It all depends (oil retention) on how worn the governor shaft bushing (the one that screws into the engine on the outside) is.

 

I'm not sure about your dipstick. Wish I could help.

Gabriel is right, all governor shafts on these old engines leak a little, sometimes the oil is just never cleaned off, making it look bad. As for the dipstick, I know the counterweights on the crank come really close, but I've never seen one get hit. Maybe just use your dipstick to check your oil, and put in a little plug when you run it.
