This is a strange want, but I have a specific application to need all of these options. I want to buy a 1960s or 1970s Cub Cadet with the following specifications. I want a gear drive with the creeper gear and external disc brakes. I also want either 10 or 12 hp Kohler (prefer the 10 hp). I do not need any implements, as I will be using this to move trailers around the yard. I would prefer operational condition with decent paint, but not a show tractor, and paint doesnt have to match lol. Tires don't matter, as I will just switch them around when I get it anyway lol. Pricing... Well, we will see.

Thanks eric. Im set on disc brakes because my CC 102 has the internal and stops when it decides to let me. Which when moving my trailers around has not been an option yet. I also would prefer creeper for the same reason... Increase reaction time while navigating trailers. If i can score what i need i will use the 102 differently, and finally straighten the rear panel that i smashed while hooking to the trailer. I chose to hit the brakes... Tractor opted to ignore me and coast on....

Sounds like your brakes were worn on the 102 and needed adjustment.  I just adjusted the brakes on a 71 that came into the dealer and it will lock up the rear axle in 3rd gear with 400lbs of weight on the wheels/rear axle.

I have adjusted the 102's brakes 3 times... And just bought a 108 this weekend (no creeper but has external brakes) and it came with a parts 109, so the 102 will get brake upgrade.

Want another Cub Cadet and this one MUST have the creeper to make me happy. I want either 106, 108, 126, or 128. My plan right now is simple. I have a 108 and 102 and braking issue aside am more fond of the 108 wide frame over the narrow frame 102. My 102 does not charge, but is starts and runs. It does not stop, and I figured out why, and I have half of it fixed, but without opening up the transaxle, the internal brake will not be fixed. When it comes to pulling that transaxle, no thanks. Anyway, would rather find either a narrow frame or wide frame with disc brakes and creeper, and no engine, then just move the good engine in the 102 over. If wide frame it must have sheet metal, but the narrow frame could be just a rolling chassis as long as it has the creeper and brakes, as I could use all the 102 goods on it.

And before anyone criticizes me for wanting to abandon the 102 chassis and transaxle, I will go on record as saying, the frame has been hacked up around the creeper holes and the front axle is in rough condition. I only have about $200 bucks in the 102, and it runs and drives, but refuses to stop on a dime. If I am to invest a lot of time and dollars into a cub cadet to make it suit me better, it is going to have to start out with less hacks.

Hi Tim, I forgot to take this down after scoring a 108 this past summer. Thanks for the response.
