Hey guys

Wanted to share this build thread with you.  First ground up Cub build ive ever done so Im open to comments, advice or opinions.  Ive already took one fellas advice and bought the rear axle/frame stiffeners.  i actually started this project back in Feb but had to get off of it for awhile to get caught up on some other things.  Hopefully now i will be able to get this thing wrapped up.  Here are a few pictures to show where i started and where im currently at.  

Thanks guys

 

This is the day i bought it

the tractor had little over 1000 hrs on it and had been neglected.  i got it home, changed the oil, cleaned the carb and added fresh gas and noticed that when it warmed up it had a pretty loud knock mid range that wasnt heard at all cold.  I had already spent a few minutes cruising around the yard and fell in love w it, so i decided to tear into the engine.  and if i was gonna go that far with it, i might as well go thru with complete resto.   crazy thing is when i tore into the engine, i found that the first 3 of the 4 main bearings had spun and yet it still had really good oil pressure.  before i took the engine off the tractor i could take the front pulley and shake it around a good 1/16th any angle i pulled it.  Hard to believe it even ran at all.

Wondered the same thing Maybe low oil situation? It had a pretty good leak from timing cover seal. I got the feelin from the guy i bought it from he didn't let too much concern him. Haha

Thanks for the kind words. I try to research and read a lot but there is still a lot ima need help with. Like the leaking power steering sector. I'm seeing their painful to rebuild
