Sold my 129 cub cadet today. It was a feebee 6 or 7 years ago. It was under a tarp tires rotted off. Old timer in his 90's said he'd had the motor rebuilt at IHC dealer 10 year previous. His son in law said he hadn't seen tractor move in 12 years. Motor does run strong. Different tires and hood, new belts and blades used it as my extra mower worked great.
But i have couple other "extra mowers" and this one was off brand. (1050 bolens are my others) So I let it go. On plus side I have $$ to put towards other projects. Also gave him the parts tractor I had so I have more room in the yard for new treasures.
