Dad called yesterday and said I needed to meet him in San Antonio this morning. He said he had bought a couple tractors, and we neede to pick them up. The first tractor is a TroyBilt vertical shaft twin hydro, looks something like a late model Bolen's. The second one was a 104 Cub Cadet with a mower deck under it. It looks like it's in desent shape for sitting in a barn for the last 5 years.

Way to go Dad. That 104 looks repairable. Got a niece that lives down that way some where.

Alan, They parked it because he bought the TroyBilt Hydro for mowing. Thats all the guy was using this for. I think I can clean the carb and gas tank, and it'll run. 100.00 was a good deal we thought, and then the guy brought out a 5" thick service and parts manual from IH, it has all the models from the Original to the147 in it. I am going to have to get really busy on PDF and uploading manuals now...

The manuals are probably worth that much. I figure you got a CC pretty near free.

I have one about that thick, but it is mostly parts. They may have old #'s, but the parts guys can usually find the newer #'s that way. I am not sure how to make a PDF out of them. Mine is the TC-157, covers serial #'s 400,001 thru 665,000. Even have a 1992 & 1994 price listing. I forget I have it at times.

I had three 104s at one time - they're my favorite narrow frame Cub.

As for the manuals, most of the manuals for those models you mentioned are already online someplace, and I'm sure they're here for the most part. I would check the manual's section here first before you go crazy scanning them - I think you will find most, if not all, are already online.

It's got too many pages to be scanned in. I'd fill up the hard drive. Good reference material, though. Might come in handy at times.

This is Dad, I still read the for sale adds in the paper. Not much there, but you get lucky once in a while. I just took the guy,s word for what he had and made a offer site un-seen. Got lucky. Want to here it run, then got to get back on the Original we have been collecting parts for.
