Just picked up a cub cadet 105 today for $50.00 today from a guy i knew from school.It had a little accident though.He was plowing snow with it 2 winters ago and it quit running. He picked it up with the back hoe and was driving up his driveway and it fell off.It needs a steering wheel,which i have one,a hood,and a left front wheel spindle for the body damage.As far as mechanically i know it needs an ignition switch,and a battery to crank er over.hopefully a set of points or something simple to get it started.It came with mower deck and snow plow.

A lot of people would have scrapped that tractor. I'm glad you're going to fix it! Good luck on the rebuild.

Congrats on the newly acquired 105. $50 is a smokin deal. I might have the parts you are looking for. I know I have the left wheel spindle and a hood. Possibly a ignition switch also.

I know.I like to work on stuff like this,and get it running,and usable.It's also a good learning experiance.Finding parts,manuals,and the tear down and repair.

Nice find!! The 1x4/5, 1x6/7 I think are the best looking cubs.

Well i'm finally getting a chance to post pictures of my 105 after it was reassembled and broken and bent parts are replaced.I finished it up back in april. It ended up needing a hood,seat,fuel bowl,carb rebuild kit,steering spindle,left front wheel,steering wheel and ignition switch.I also put a set of sears wheels on the rear because they were laying around and the ones that came with tractor wouldn't hold air.All together i only have $250 invested which isn't bad from what i've seen them sell for.I think the reason why the tractor shut off for the p.o was it was out of gas.The fuel bowl leaked like crazy.All i had to do to get it started was clean the points,and rebuild carb(it was outside uncovered for 2 yrs)and put gas in it.It fired right up.I shut it off after i knew it ran to repair leaks.It runs great with no smoke. :laughingteeth:

That turned out nice. The 105's are a really nice tractor. My dad just got one a couple of months ago and it sure is a nice tractor. Jake

Nice 105 you have there. Glad you got it running to suit you. Put some paint on those back wheels and folks won't know the difference. Enjoy it!

I don't know much about the 105, but my 129 is one tough GT. I know you will be pleased with the 105. Great find and fix.
