Here are a few pics of my 147. I got it pretty reasonable. Every thing seems to work.

Sweet tractor.
The only thing different from a 147 and a 127 is the engine.The 127 has a 12hp K301a and the 147 has a 14hp K321a.

Your tractor should have the Quick release style deck carriage and a square end deck.Not the Cast end deck that's on it.

The original deck may have been to far gone to save.I bet that little deck will mow trees down with the 14hp Kohler powering it.

Eric, that deck does seem to do pretty well. Thanks for letting me know that. The previous owner had it for 15 years and only put some paint on it he said.

The 149 was the last of the narrow frames and the only one with a 14hp kohler stuffed into it.

Here's a little info I found.

Models 73, 106, 126, 107, 127, and 147, which was the last generation of Cub Cadets to utilize the narrow frame, composed the next generation of Cub Cadets. The model 73 still contained the seven horsepower Kohler engine, three speed direct drive transmission, pan seat, and optional round fenders. The Cub Cadet 106, which replaced the model 104, had a ten horsepower Kohler engine and three speed transmission, while the model 126 which replaced the model 124, had a twelve horsepower Kohler engine and a three speed direct drive transmission. The ten horsepower model 107 and the twelve horsepower model 127 were hydrostatic units which replaced the models 105 and 125. The model 147 was unique because it was the first model of Cub Cadet to utilize a fourteen horsepower Kohler engine. The flywheel on this engine was so large, International had to widen the frame next to the flywheel so the engine would fit between the rails. The model 147 was also unique because it was equipped with electric lift. Electric lift used an electric motor to raise and lower implements with the movement of a switch. The most noteworthy style change in these Cub Cadet models were the wider square fenders. These are the same fenders that were standard on all the following Cub Cadet models International made and some of the early models MTD made. These models were produced from 1969 to 1971.
