Head gaskets are easy, just make sure you torque the head bolts correctly and retorque after a heat cycle.

I have a Cub 122 I could have sold you, it is in parts though but it is all there :D

Great deal, so you getting a Cub and keeping the Deere??

Head gaskets are easy, just don't drop the nuts or bolts down the shroud.. really slows it down.. as Dad helped me see.. right after he told me not to drop any down the shroud LOL.

BushHog96, be sure to check the head for flatness before putting back on. Best way is to lay fine sandpaper on a piece of glass and move head in circular motion on that. Check to see where material wasn't taken off. Keep going until you have a smooth gasket surface.

:ditto::ditto:

If the headgasket is blown than I'de give it a 70% chance that the head is atleast slightly warped.A very slight warp will flatten back out if you HOT torque the head bolts.The head is Aluminum and not very thick so it will flex a tiny tiny bit when hot.

It all depends on how tight the head bolts/nuts are.And how long it was run with the Blown head gasket.

getting a cub 122 for Christmas but needs a head gasket, easy fix?

The best instructions I have seen on Cub head work is on Matt Gonitzke's Cub site. I go on Christmas break in 10 days and my first project is my 122 head using his methods.

I see my first post was edited by Moderator Bolens 1000, I hope I didn't break any rules by posting the link?
I have found Matt's info. useful and interesting and only intended to share what he has made available to the public on his site.
