A guy came to look at buying my brothers 16 h.p.  Sears. 

But he fell in love with my SS14.  I shot him a price that was higher than reasonable and he took it! 

I wasn't expecting to make a sale but he was obviously wanting my tractor.  

This means I'll have to get the Cub 782 ready and tested by plow day.   I put a sears 3 pt. on it.  Also I am trying an electric actuator for the lift.  Not real sure how it is going to work out yet, but the manual lift arm is still there.     Rick

you probably "just" got that electric actuator stroke length figured out, too... you didn't let that go with it, did you?

Rick, I think even if you came without a tractor that you would have a great time with some great folks!  But bring it!

Bet you'll get to turn dirt one way or another! If I can pry Steve off Alice, you might get a shot with it.

I have the actuator hooked up.  The manual lift hurts my shoulder.

But I'd still like to use the hydr. deck lift to raise the plow. Just trying to figure out enough travel on the lever.  Rick

still trying to figure out the travel/ so that means that you kept the actuator, didn't let it go with the sale of the tractor?  yeah I know what you mean about hurts your shoulder,  I had a 8hp, 3 point mount tiller mounted on one of my old Sears/Roper machines... and yeah that was a PITA to pull up out of the dirt at the end of the rows/

and that's even considering that I was ~15 years younger then...

Manual lift tillers are crappy. I had a 1970s Gilson S series gear drive with manual lift tiller. I was around 20 years old at the time. After major pinching of a nerve in my back the first year of lifting the tiller at the end of each row... I quickly figured out that it is possible to turn the tractor with the tiller IN the ground. No regrets on that decision, much easier. Never have I had any other implement lift unassisted ever since. I don't let anyone get to me about being "weak", a "wimp", or any other choice phrases. I figure they will learn the hard way one day. And for those wondering, yes that exact nerve I pinched that day still hurts every now and again, reminding me I was only issued one back, dont screw it up any more.

PS: Must love the "dont want to sell price" as it sometimes backfires and oh wait, money lol. Youll get another tractor together quick enough. Dont worry, you arent the only one of us that will be pushing the nights before to be ready.
