It was listed for a week.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

The one posted is missing the 90 degree angle drive and can’t be sure but looks like it’s missing a pulley and shaft?

The 90* belt pulley drive would be the easy part to find. Other than that it could get expensive.

I'm hoping to have the time to try to restore that cub next year, she runs great, need to find a torque tube for her, some previous owner did some mod welding to it

That brings back memories. I remember as a youth my dad setting me up with a milk stool,a ball peen hammer,an open and a box wrench and changing all those knife's on our 6 footer. Looking back I wish he had bought one of their sharpeners.

What exactly does a Mott flair mower do? It’s purpose?

The advantage to a flail mower is that when the knives hit a solid object, like a rock, stick, etc., it does not become a projectile. The knife just swings back, unlike a mower blade. A flail mower is less effective in tall grass and weeds.

Thanks for the lesson.

Mott also made a mulching attachment to add to the flail mower so technically they mulch, too!
