I've been searching and cant seem to come across a decent priced cub "O" seat pan for my new toy. I've seen a few, but for the price people want, i could buy another whole parts tractor with that kind of money! Anyone know of any seat pans for sale??

The pan seats are expensive and hard to come by. I have one but it has been brazed in the center where they often crack.

You will probably not find an original reasonably priced seat pan for that is in nice shape unless you happen to get lucky. The majority of them have been repaired in the middle. I would hit the local TSC for a pan seat. They have ones that are pretty nice for a reasonable price.

I agree with the others. Any nice uncracked ones will bring BIG bucks! The chances of finding one are slim to none.If you have an original style that can be welded, I would do that and then get a seat cover for it. Thats what I did on my 100 and after doing some cleaning and bodywork to the underside before painting you'd never know there was ever a crack.

nope, I just need the seat pan. Theres a neat one one the tractor, but its alittle too wide. If it moves just alittle it contacts the fenders. So I have to keep adjusting the darn thing. I didn't realize they were so scarce. I had a guy that had many, but he wanted $40 for a cracked one and $75 to $100 for a good one without shipping. I may just cut the corners on my current seat pan so it doesn't hit the fenders and run it for now.

Well if you can help me out and come across a decent one wilberj let me know. Your flea market price is in my price range. When I bought it I figured a old seat pan that needed some sandblasting and paint would cost $25 and a real clean one about $50. When i heard $40 for a cracked one, and 75 to $100 for a uncracked one I almost passed out. So if you can help me out, shoot me a pm.
