Remember, it's tillage equipment. You don't need a deck. That is, unless you use it like a Gravely rotary plow!!

Anyone want to see how many times I can loose with my simplicity in one year :bigrofl: it's the only small tractor I have with a garden implement (tiller). I'll look around in some old pictures, I think I have some pics of the Bolesn HT23 with the hiller on the back. I didn't use it this year in the garden, I used my new updated diesel bolens instead  :thumbs:  :worshippy1:.

 

Anyone ever thought about having the theme of compact or sub compact tractor? I have two of them! :dancingbanana:

Thank you sir, what I forgot to add as I read back over it was the fact that in one of those tear downs it actually received a new 10 over piston and rings.

I got this Cub about a month and a half ago from my grandfather who had owned it for the last 30yrs, as you can see in the first pic it had been worked hard all it's life and was in need of some serious repair. This tractor always had a front blade on it and my grandfather used it to move dirt and to plow many driveways in the winter. When I got it I decided it was time to give it some love.

I started teardown on April 8th with the intention to have it plowing at PA plow day on April 22nd, it was a tight deadline that in the end proved to be a little to tight and I was unable to get it done. After taking some time away I finally finished it up on May 7th, I'm really pleased with how it looks and can't wait to get it dirty at plow day. The brass steering cap was custom made by a good friend and is the icing on the cake. I will add more info later as time permits

When you get ready to add the info, I can edit it into this post for you.
