It came to me, did not have to go get it. Fellow was passing by my house on his way to the junk yard and seen the 107 CC in front of the shop so he stopped to see if I was interested. $50 and we unloaded it. As I have stated in past post's "just when you think you have seen it all" meaning mods i.e. molestations another comes my way. The battery tray on the side of the frame. The dash tower/battery tray is not rotted out, good and solid. Came with brand new over size front tires, new muffler and fuel bowl. Over size rear 10.50's Cub Cadet turfs. I did get it to fire but it had a new non internal resistor coil on the engine. Glass pan seat gave me a laugh with the custom upholstery... Bottom of the pan is cracked as usual. Tractor has possibilities and a decent solild deck. I have extra parts to make it complete, just gotta find time to take it further...maybe this winter...maybe?

For $50 you did great . That 122 shows a lot of promise , and is in really good condition for a machine that's almost 50 years old . The first cub I  owned was a 122 that I restored and still have  .

Got a new coil installed. Adjusted the gov & carb, found a complete breather assy with screws, new filter and plug plus oil change. Got it running smooth. Found a vented clutch cover. Re done the battery cables and found the correct batt hold down hardware. Removed the battery tray from the frame. Got a nice set of 8.50 rears that hold air. Getting closer to be a worker... I hope!

Very nice tractor BNK. My 102 is a 1967 also, but deep down it is a 122 (12 hp Kohler).

. Casey, it's almost complete but trying to stay correct for the seat (time being) I may do a temp spring and low back seat. These ol 1X2\3's can make it a rough ride but I do have a nice glass pan with blue lace but no upholstery. Question? Way is there no flat stock or lip on the back of the box/seat mount...it is open?

I still need to replace the broken clutch \ break spring so I'll pull the deck \ hanger to get to it and store the implement for later inspection. Replaced the worn steering wheel bushing but the original wheel was already cracked and bent so I installed a temp steering wheel from a 107. Choke cable came from the 107 too. I kinda like the height of the wheel from the dash.

Here is something to strive for... My 102 setup as it is right now... Definitely feel ten feet tall driving it lol. Like you I like the taller steering wheel, which I took off a 109. Front axle from an 1863, and the rears are 26x10.50-12 atv tires.

Casey you got a narrow frame super. I have seen a "cyclops" front axle on 1X8/9's before but you are the first narrow frame set up I have seen! I have a complete axle from a 1440 I thought about for my 149, I did do a 1" spindle convert from a later quietline about 4 yrs ago (149). No doubt you are running the 1" on yours.

speaking of swapping parts between Cub models/series, would a steering wheel that claims to fit a 782, 1811,1210 fit a 1250?

Absolutely running 1" spindles up front. The original front axle on my 102 was worn out. Be warned about the swap, the drag link does not install easily. Drilling the 3/8" hole to 1/2" in the steering box is not easy (hardened) and requires dremeling. Second, the drag link is too short, so you will have to make your own like I did.

Additionally, my 102 is not the first narrow frame I have seen with the super steer front axle, but it's not as common to want the two inch lift and 2 inch stretch version. But after having to totally rebuild the front axle on the 108 after buying it... I am definitely not a fan of the other version of cub cadet super steer / non super steer axles of that same design. Definitely want to install a super steer front axle on the 108... But with no lower gearing, larger tires out back create a lot more speed (102 has no creeper).
