Will finish this topic later. Wife decided we are going to the gym. - - - - - - -

Since the topic is the IH built Cub Cadets.

Was at the hardware store picking up fuel line plumbing parts for a 105 (now 125) Cub Cadet. The woman behind the counter ask what I was working on. Told her a 50 year old lawn mower. She had a strange look on her face as if she didn't believe me.

Daughter brought this tractor down from Iowa because it wouldn't run. Exchanged tractors for one that I had gone thru a year or so earlier. I purchased the house daughter now owns in 1980 I think the tractor I sent back to Iowa came with the house.

Coil fixed the not start problem. Tie rod ends and steering cam follower will fix the steering slop. Couple of other minor issue and new front tires, will be good for another 50 years.

Guessing, a bit less than $200- for the tractor parts including tune up and complete service. New front tires and tubes will be the biggest expense.

That statement alone opens up a whole slough of possibilities. Looking forward to THOSE stories. :D

Glad to hear you got your daughter's mower fixed. She brought it to the right man!

Wife and I visit the gym almost every day. Alternate, walk one day, next day weight room. Outstanding gym at the local state tech college. Membership costs around $240- a year, combined/total for wife and I.

Parts for narrow framed Cub Cadets are getting expensive if purchased from a retailer. The button to release the mechanical lift is $24- plus shipping. New center pulley for 42" mower deck is $124-.

I've been looking for narrow framed parts tractors for quite some time. They are getting hard to find. Those advertised on the internet are way more than I want to spend. Guessing folks are rebuilding them for their antique tractor appeal.

Is going to gym more exercise than building fence, cutting trees, etc.?

talking about the price of parts for the older Cadets, makes me wonder if you might be ahead to buy a newer one, though I know that goes against the grain for you. :D
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

John:

Gym, then the acreage for more physical labor. Keeps the weight down.

Buying new stuff. Not a chance if I can repair it for way less than a new one costs. Heck, I'm still driving a 1995 Dodge pickup. When the engine dies, I'm going to spend maybe $5000- for a factory rebuilt engine. In this part of Missouri, $5000- won't even buy a used pickup.
