Any videos or pics out there of engine removal for a Cub 1250? Is there some kind of cradle thing the engine sits in?
Thanks

The engine does sit in a cradle. The easiest way to get it off is to unbolt the grill and then I would unbolt all the wiring from the engine and disconnect the driveling and pull the engine out thefron of the tractor. That's a pretty condensed version of how to do it. I once had a 1450, wish I still did.

    I didn't do it! Unless you have paperwork to back it up

Pretty much what Cub guy said. Not the easiest. 4 bolts going thru the frame and rubber isolator mounts onto engine cradle mounts. Looks like it would clear the frame but on my 1650 they wouldn't. Have to remove in steps. Remove the isolator bolts lift a little to get clearance and remove the 4 bolts in oil pan holding the cradle brackets. Mine had a small angle bracket bolted to top of head with a hole in it. Was able to hook thru it and lift it out.

If you check around the cub postings there is a fix for reinforcing the cradle.  And solid mounts to replace the rubber mounts. Check with the sponsors for possible info/parts.  

Come over to the shop and we'll try and find some pics of the one we did.     Rick
