Hello I'm new to this and I'm glad I found this site. I purchased a Cub over a year ago and I love it.
I'm planning on doing some repair work and I look forward to some suggestions and expert advice from the members.
The main issue I have right now is that it leaks oil each time I run it. It is not a little leak, while the tractor is running I can actually see it leak. It appears it is coming from where the engine and transmission connect. I'm somewhat handy and was wondering if this is a repair thaty I could handle.
Any comments would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Johnbo :D
As I stated earlier I recently joined this site and I attempted to post something earlier so if this is posted along with my earlier one my apologies.

Welcome aboard Johnbo! It sounds like your cub has a leaking rear main seal. You can easily take care of it. Especially with help from the board. You may encounter a problem with fit of the replacement seal in your existing seal retainer but we have an answer for that too.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Good for you :) You have come to the right place at the right time. I can't answer your questions but the (experts) here can and will. Maybe in a few years and restorisations (sp) I will be of some help. Welcome. Grump
