With the model #, you might have luck looking here to find the size.

Haven't posted on this Cadet 60 in a while.  Done some work on it over the summer (too hot in the barn for much).  Got the carb apart and rebuilt.  Installed a new battery and the carb, added a little gas, new fuel lines and - voila! It started! Needs some adjusting and a governor linkage, but there's HOPE!  

 

More when I get 'er running around the yard...

Okay, got the little mower up and running! I took it out of the barn, got about 20 feet and the VERY rusty chain broke! Did some research and found a modern chain that is very close to the OEM one, so I bought it and installed it, after pulling the rear axle and differential.  Figured I might as well do that while getting the chain together.  I disassembled the quite unusual rear bearings (they remind me of the old grease cups found on antique disk harrows) and cleaned out what was probably remnants of the original bearing grease and refilled them, so those should turn a bit easier now.  Anyway, once the axle, chain, and wheels were back on, I fired it up and rode it around the yard!  No mowing yet - that's for next spring, but it was fun knowing this was probably the first driving it's had in 5-10 years.  Very cool.

 

Now it gets put away for a while.  I have to finish my CC 106 refresh, but then I'll disassemble the 60 down to the frame and refresh it.  Gotta love those fall and winter projects!
