Tired but not out yet...

Postby BigBill » Wed Jul 11, 2012 2:47 pm

I'm back.....I have a chance to get a cub cadet 129 and a cubcadet 123. One turns over but they never ran it and the other blew a rod. Sounds like possibly a 4 x 4 future project but i'd have to dig deep for the tru power tires. (8). I'm on the fence right now. Bill

I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I gottt themmmm already. Sorry to say the 123 just needs a headgasket and it came with a new set of rear tru power AG ties, a set of rear wheel weights and a 44" mower deck. The crank seems to free wheel but i hear the piston going up and down. I'm also sorry to say the 129 turns over and has compression but needs a hood & grille plus driveshaft work. These two machines aren't dead ion the water yet. I stepped in it again. Are these two worth it?

Looks like i'm back to my roots again?

I'm a new man since the lightening bolt missed me by 25' or so two weeks ago. Now its wide open throttle. Bill

I think the 123 may have a stuck valve since the front rim went south when they parked it. It just sat in the barm. The 129 needs a driveshaft. I'm not sure wether to run them or build a 4x4 or fix and sell them yet. I never had a hydro yet? Bill
