the good news is that the guy that i got this machine from, i have been working for him. i actaully worked this machine off, 20 hours of labor in exchange for everything you see. he has a "cub cadet hill" probably 30 of these tractors with still many good usable parts i have acess to for cheap(i can work it off). right now i can see that the hood is going to have to be replaced.
i also bought an HVLP gun so i can start learning how to paint, the right way. im sick of rattle cans.
i should also mention that i have a jd112 with a very healthy running k301 that i can transplant into this tractor if needed. when i mean healthy its very healthy. its a kohler shortblock with maybe 3 years of use on it. i kind of like the cubs better than my 112. shaft drive rocks. i would pull the engine from the 112, put it on the cub and sell the 112 minus the engine. i would also sell all of my jd attachments. i have a 42 blade, 38 deck, 37a blower, 31 tiller, and a 47 deck. i could get 900-1,000 bucks for all of that stuff and put it back into the cubs. i like having the 2 cubs since all of the attachments can be used on either machine. it kind of stinks having to have 2 sets of attachments. the only thing missing from my cub cadet collection would be a blade, and i know where i could get one of those really easily.
jd 112 vs. cub cadet gear drive, i think the cub cadet is a better/stronger machine, but thats just my opinion

There are not rust holes in it are there?It looks to me like it is just surface rust.

i do have a couple questions.
why does it seem like this thing will not shift into gear? i know the shift patern on the cub cadets but it wont go in or out of gear. lever will move back and forth but not up or down
how do i get the front axle pin out? is that just a matter of driving it out with a hammer?
