I really don't want to but I NEED a good dependable riding mower so

 

Up for Trade is my Late uncles 1963 Cub Cadet 70 with Cub Cadet dealer optioned Kohler K181 8hp engine Perfect 36" cast end deck and Tire chains and Plow.

 

 

This one doesn't have any dealer options but the upgraded engine.

 

Fenders are home made by my uncle but very very well done.

 

Engine needs rings and a light honing.She Smokes but the bore is good and straight and the piston and connecting rod are reusable. Pretty Hard to find (don't like the work Rare lol) engine to with 2.875" bore 2.750" stroke and slightly higher compression K141-K160 small bore head.

 

New Points and plunger

New Coil

New air filter

New Starter Generator

New Voltage regulator

Fresh carb kit with new float,needle and seat

New Sediment bowl

New axle seals and rear pan seal with Fresh Hytran

Fresh deck belts 

Middle Spindle turned down and fresh bearings Other 2 are good and quiet

New front tires with tubes

Rear tires are cracked a bit but have tubes and hold air

Battery is a fresh 380cca 450ca Decka would like to keep it for the new mower but it can go with it.

 

She runs and mows but smokes pretty bad. Could have it bored to K181 STD bore and order a $70 ebay kit and it would be like a new engine.

 

Plow has not been restored has some rust on it and it's missing the lift rod but it's solid with very little wear on the skids.Would like to keep the plow and use it on my 582 but I'll have to add metal to the plow under carriage.

 

Will Trade even up for a good dependable clean Lawn tractor or Garden tractor with 46" or larger deck. Would like something 10 years old or newer but will consider a older GT as long as she's in perfect running and working condition.

 

Located in New Paris,Bedford county Pennsylvania

I Will Not sell it.I need a good dependable mower. My $100 craigslist find Gardenway Troy Bilt blew a rod and the hydro tranny is weak so it's not worth fixing. Heck $100 and it lasted me 6 years but left me sitting with 1/2 the yard mowed lol

 

I have another Small bore K181 block that comes with it .010 over 2.885" with .010 under crank but needs piston rod and rings.This fella out of Greece has small bore rings in STD .010 and .020 over

Man i would love that, i would want to build it into a puller, but the smart side of me wouldnt want to ruin it, considering what it is.

Im sure it will be gone soon!

Holding off posting this on Craigslist for a while. Figured someone here would appreciate and take good care of it.

 

I'm back to push mowing till I find a good mower.

Small Update

 

I found rings for it.Just ordered a set and another gasket kit for it.Depending on how it runs out after honing and installing rings I may keep it.

 

Going to be atleast a week before I have time to pull the engine again and hone it. So If it's not gone by then I'll more than likely keep it and just mow with it untill I can find another cheap rider to mow with.

 

Serial numbers are 68945 so it was built in Late October of 1963. Which is pretty cool because they only made 2901 CC70s in 1963.
