She is on concrete, protected by a tarp under the deck. Best I could do. She'll get her turn inside too!

I did find 2 more old Ford garden tractors awhile back, along with a bunch of others, including an old Massey 8 complete with the deck on it. The guy was only advertizing 4 cub cadets. He would only let go of the cubs, and they were all old, but they were mtd's, mid to late 80's. I made him an offer on the Massey, he said it and the Fords belonged to his wife, and she didn't want to part with them. I called him back this morning and offered to trade my Ford for the Massey, and his wife said there was no way she would let go of the Massey.

I think they will make excellent winter projects.
They look like they are complete and still in good condition.


Nice finds! That 100 looks real good.

I was just trying to see if you were close to Tulsa. You have some pretty nice tractors there to fix up. Thanks for sharing.

I just stole the 6-12's off of the 600. (don't tell the Bolens fans!) They will look good on the cub after I clean them up a little.

well, the cub runs good, and so does the ford. Did not take much more than a new choke cable and charging the battery and cleaning out the gas tank on the cub. The ford had a bad starter and one heck of a mouse nest under the motor tin. I think I know what burnt up the starter too, because the solenoid stuck on once when I was trying to start the motor. I had turned the key to off and the starter was still turning. I tapped on the solenoid and the starter quit. It also might be that is has just sat in a barn for a few years, which I am sure it has.

Glad you got them to run. It's a great sound when they fire for the first time after sitting a while. Looking forward to the fixing pics.

Nice! You will have a couple of tractors there that you can be proud of when they are done.

uh-oh. I didn't take any pictures while I was working on them.
The cub was pretty simple, not much to get her going. I looked up the serial number on it....Feb. of '65. I have the hitch plate that mounts on the back of the tractor, and the tractor already had the spring assist and lift lever on it. I am going to use some scrap steel I have around here and make my own sleeve hitch for it. I have a sleeve hitch plow in the shed that will hook right up to it. Have to see who does a better job in the garden, the cub or the sears! The sears has 3 pt. hitch and a 8 hp. advantage over the cub. I guess I will have to allow for that.

You fix to sell or just to play? Both are good picks. Maybe you could also put a steel nose on that boat and break the ice on the lake a bit.

I usually fix to sell. I like working on them. The cub isn't going anywhere. The ford runs great! I took it out in the yard today to mulch leaves and learned that it does a whole lot better job mowing than the sears, and if the cub can plow better that it can, it might be the next one "going out to pasture".
The guy I got the cub from said he thought it had been restored once before. The paint job on it shows it. I wish it had fenders on it. I have found that those are a rare, expensive item for the old 100's. Original or aftermarket are at least $200+ I won't spend that much money on just a pair of fenders. I do have an extra set of old sears suburban fenders that might work on it.......
