You mention red tractors and everyone is getting out of sorts. Someone asked which tractor started as a diesel I think the 982 but could be wrong. Never been interested in the diesels so watch them get sold and pay little attention, I do love my 127 though it treats me good and just got a rework and rewire so it can continue to do chores for me.

Not getting out of sorts here, just want to make sure everyone has the correct information especially those that are newer to the hobby and may not know.  No harm meant by the comment.

 

Now the only Cub Cadet that came from the factory with a diesel engine and IH red paint was the 782D but it was built by Cub Cadet Corporation and not IH as Cub Cadet had already been bought by MTD at that point.  It was sold at the same time as the yellow and white 882 at Cub Cadet O.P.E. dealers.  The IH built red 982 came equipped with a 19.9 hp Onan B43G engine only.  After MTD acquired the Cub Cadet line from IH they continued this engine but changed the color on some of the units to yellow and white and sold them through their O.P.E. dealers while some of them were painted the IH red and sold through IH dealers.  They did not change the model number on it though dependent on the color like they did with the 782D and 882.

 

The "Super" chassis which was the 982 became a broader range of models in MTD's last series of tractors before the plastic hooded "cyclops". They include the M18 Kohler gas powered 1872, the B43G Onan gas powered 2072, the B43G Onan gas powered 1912, the D600 Kubota diesel powered 1572, and the D640 Kubota diesel powered 1772.

 

Also of note the 782D/882 became the model 1512 in this series and continued on virtually unchanged from the former model designation.  However the 782D in question in the Original post has the side shields from a 1512 on it.  Here is a picture of my dad's "782D" that was in the Cub Cadet Corporate calender back in 07.  It actually started out life as a 1512 and is only painted IH red with 782D decals on it.  Notice it has the slotted side shields on it.  Now having said this I have been told by some that they have seen later model 882 and 782D's with the slotted side panels so it could be factory.

 

 

OH and I do agree on the 127.  I couldn't be without my 107, it's a handy tractor to have around!

To answer the original poster's question in my area that is easily a $1500 tractor, if not $2000.  aagitch makes many good points and suggestions.  I too would get rid of the battery on the rear and put the proper under hood one back in.  Did the same thing to dad's 782D when he bought it.  Never regretted it yet.

I get jealous when I see the diesels.  I had a 1572 that was powdered coated red and decalled a 982d.  I was awesome and I sold it when I moved to a small property. Huge mistake.  I believe the 2072 came with a Magnum 20.

I thought so too but Hank Will's Cub Cadet book list's it as an Onan.

IHCubGuy, thank you for the great write up!
I don't want to make a mistake and let this one go and regret it later, done that before. Although I am running out of room for tractors I think I could definitely make space for this one. I'm going to talk to him and see what he thinks. Definitely would get the battery back in the original place and would like to put a set of ag's on it. And a working hour meter! Thanks again everyone for all the help.

Gitto around here. My former BIL paid $2,400 for a good runner with a tiller, deck, and snowblower.

Dmax, that is correct. Those side panels are slotted and were used somewhere in the time that the 1512 was built. I have an early 1512 and it uses the solid panel but the later ones are slotted. No big deal that those are slotted.

I'm thinking if you clean the fuel system you should be good to go. Do the GR starter and GP upgrade and you'll have a completely different machine for less than $150.

 

 

Actually all 982's and the early 2072's came with the Onan B48G. The B43G is the same engine with a shorter stroke and is rated at 18hp and was never used in a Cub Cadet. I love Onan engines. No other engine has that unique sound or power.

I am actually looking for one of of the 782D/882/1512's right now.  Trying to sell or trade my Deutz Allis 5215 sub compact for one.  She is a bit to large for us.  But I still want a diesel.   Mike

Never heard of or seen a 2072 with Onan. That would be pretty neat to get ahold of one.

This is the only one I had...all original except for the PTO, radiator, fuel pump, drive line and starter. In my neck of the woods they are rare to find. Also had a 50" deck.
