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 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
