I have three cubs models 104 100 & 71 along with a ford yt 16 they need restored. would a parts manual be the best for a restoration project?

Parts manuals are ALWAYS invaluable in my opinion, but I would also reccomend a service manual as well as a Kohler K series service manual for engine repair. I alwys have both service and parts maunals for all my restorations from my garden tractors to my big farm tractors.

:wave: jd4461 Welcome to GTTalk! Glad to have you with us! Like IHCubGuy said above, I like to have not only the manuals he mentioned, but ANY information I can find in addition to them! Hope that the restoration goes well and we'd love to see some pictures! (Before During, & After shots are great!)

Good luck with the restoration. Make sure you take lots of pics, they not only keep a record of what you did, but sometimes where stuff goes LOL.

:welcome: to GTTalk.

Welcome. I would definitely have any info I could get my hands on during a restoration. I just completed a repaint and while I had things apart, I used the manuals to look for anything that might need to attention while I had the sheet metal off.

Look in restoration forums for tips also, can be very helpful at times.

I always have both Parts and Service manuals whenever possible. Service manuals to help with break downs and Parts to just figure out what the heck is everything attached to. Not to mention in case something goes wrong and you need a new part. We just finished tearing down a Kubota RC60-71B deck and the parts manual was so helpful with trying to figure out what was holding certain things in. There is one thing that is not coming apoart at the moment but a press should fix that problem!
