ORU may have been just at the edge back then. It's not now!

I fell briefly in love with a pretty OK gal. Guess that's one reason to dream 'bout OK besides dove huntin'.  :wave:

For my trip back east, I purchased my first new car.

 

A '65 'Cuda, 4-speed, V8 Commando. Buried the speedo listening to early (dark) morning AM radio. No FM back then. Speedo read 155 mph.

 

Put an 8-track in for the trip, only two tapes; Trini Lopez and whatever it was (Andy Williams?)  :rolling:

 

In Norman, lunch was ribs 'n fries, all you could eat, 99 cents!

Here is my 1054.  going into 3rd season.  So far, so good.  Only had belt fly off once.  Replaced it, and never again since then.  Fingers still crossed.  I engage blades in the highest position, then slowly lower it to cutting height.  Seems to be working.

I recently picked up what I believe, from the useful info on this site, is a 1961 Cub Cadet Original for $250.  Serial number is 5551.   It runs and came with a scraper blade.  Just needs new tires which I've already bought the fronts for it.    This is my first Cub so I've got a few questions that I'm sure you all can help me answer.    Is it a 1961 with that serial number?   Also the motor is black.   Most that i've seen are yellow.  

Did they come black in that year, or are people painting them yellow for restoration?  Or do I possibly have a newer motor?  I can't make out the serial number on the motor to tell,   I can only get enough numbers off it to tell that it is a 7 HP.   

I plan on restoring it after get it running good and using it to clear off baseball fields for our kids league.  I looked for a long time here in California.  These are very hard to find out here.  

Thanks in advance for any info and input.  IMG_9196.JPG IMG_9198.JPG IMG_9199.JPG

5551 would make it a tractor built in march of 61.  As for the engines IH painted them yellow in everything but the quietlines and the 82 series.  Your engine would be a Kohler replacement engine or possibly one somebody painted.  Looks like it should be a nice restoration candidate.

 

I am more interested in that blade on it.  Can you get a picture of the tag on the end of the moldboard and post it?  That thing is really cool.
