Hi my name is Brock I am in IN. I love the site and have nibbed around and im excited to see some more of your great GTs.

First question is about the ih cub 782 steering. I can only get mine to turn one direction like it needs adjusted. I know my grandpa had trouble with the bearings poping out on the steering box but I think he just had it too tight.

Second question is about the rear hitch attachment. I want a sleeve or a 3 pt??? I don't know what is better for what. And has anyone made one for this tractor and how would it hook up.

Lastly I think you guys should start a fel only sticky for fel and backhoes and how to do the plumbing and everything for us new guys to see how one goes together, maybe a parts list too please. Thanks in advance to any replies.

First off, Wlecome to the GT Boards. On the steering issue unless someone has changed one of the linkages it should turn almost equal distances both ways. The way the steering box is setup in them they have quite a bit of throw at the box and unless it is binding and stopping or the drag link has been changed it should turn the front wheels either direction.

On the hitch IH built 82 series with the exception of the 982 came with sleeve hitches. IH actually called their lift for the sleeve hitches a 3 point hitch as it has two lower points and the actual lift arm is the third. There are Category "0" 3 point hitches out there that can be put on a 782 but I feel for most things a regular sleeve type hitch and its corresponding style equipment will serve just as well.

By the way we like pictures. Again welcome aboard.

Thank you very much I will check that out on the steering. Where does the bar go up to so it can lift the rear hitch. I know whatyou are talking about cubguy with the hitch style and im hoping to build one soon. I will also try to get some pictures up soon of the 782. Thank you for your help.

:welcometogttalk:
The sleeve hitch implements seem to be a little more reasonably priced and still pretty prolific in most areas.

Welcome to gttalk brock , mh81 is right on the money , sleeve hitch stuff is cheaper and easier to find , cub did offer the cat 0 three on the 782 , and though there rare they also had 2000 rpm pto option.
What year is your 782?

To clarify this a bit further IH did not offer the Cat 0 hitch on the 782. Cub Cadet Corporation on the other hand DID offer the Cat 0 hitch for the 782 in both the gas and diesel versions. As for the 2000 RPM PTO it was only offered on the 982 by both IH and CCC.

Hi guys sorry I havent replied was at drill allweekend. Anyhow. I think im going to try to come up with a three point hitch for my 782 since it would give me more adjustment abilities and would work for more attatchments and I could make an adapter for sleeve hitch accessories. I cant wait to get my new garage in order so I can work on my gt. Also can anyone tell me how to post pictures I tried searching for how to but didnt find anything. Thank you.

Brock wait till you, so some minor mods to it ...the ones that make it look better, and function better like the hitch you're after...man when that happens...just invest in a new barn cuz you'll most certainly own more...I don't know beans about these cubs...but I do know everyone that has one loves it!

As far as your photo question goes...here is how I do it...although there are other ways.
Go to Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket
create an account (Free) then create an album...name it something appropriate like first photos or whatever...then click the upload photos then you'll see a transfer screen come up showing how your 'transfer is going...once complete it will take you to a screen where it shows your uploads to that folder...then you choose the last option which is the IMG code when you click on it (notice inside it will say "copied" for about 5 seconds...then you go to the forum and click where ever you want to 'insert the pic' (hit paste or control and V at the same time) and you'll see some text that looks like this...
X IMG]http://i312.photobucket.com/albums/ll332/Adrenalin540/Spirit%20photos/IMG_4073.jpg[/IMGX (note I change the leading bracket so you could see this...the leading bracket will be [ and the trailing bracket will be ] for clarity... then your pic will look like
Posted Image
and you can paste as many as you'd like...this is the 'indirect way' but very functional and takes up less storage on GTTalk servers...
