Model 73 Almost Finished!!!

Thu Dec 30, 2004 3:33 am

I'm finally on the homeward bound stages of restoring my Cub Cadet Model 73 (built in early Feb. 1971) that I took delivery on at Cubarame #1 :D . Photos will follow soon (if I can find a way to post them) :? . I fired her up last night and that little K161 7 horse Kohler just came to life on the first click of the key :) ! Just need to hook up the headlights and Grote tail light to the light switch...AND THAT WILL BE IT :) ! Somehow life's just a little bit better when you get an old tractor running again :wink: !
