Ok thanks to KennyP's post, I have narrowed it down to a built date of November 1980 which means it's a International built Cub Cadet.

In the first pic in my post #8, near to the bottom, final serial #'s for Cub Cadet 582's was 694233. I'll repost that chart here.

According to this chart, your tractor was built Dec, 1980.

Mine has 2,800 hours on it and it runs ok.I can tell it's getting a bit low on compression but doesn't smoke yet and seems to have good power.


I just rebuilt the clutch on mine as it was slipping very badly.The 582 does have a pretty weak clutch spring on it and once the teaser spring breaks like they all do after years of neglect the clutch will start to slip.


Pretty easy to rebuild the clutch though.I pressed on a new $8 bearing,welded up the worn in grooves on the release leaver and ground them flat,installed 2 new bronze pilot bushings $15 for the set,installed a new disk $30 and did away with the teaser spring.


Pulling tips.

A 5/8" long spacer can be used in place of the teaser spring and replace the Rag joints with 2 grade 8 bolts and 6 heavy flat washers for the dual rag joint setup or 3 heavy flat washers for the single rag joint and make it rigid.


I'm now trying to figure out where the Pedal return spring goes.Mine was missing and I don't see where it hooks up.
