Started prepping the engine for some paint. Pulled the governor off to free up the throttle rod pivot which came off with a little heat. Removed the starter, Mag, and fan and hit it with a knotted wire brush. Got a little more to do and then its paint time.

Looked over the engine and found some greasy area's and decided it needed a second cleaning. Scrubbed it with lacquer thinner and scotchbrite. Followed that with another wire brushing and finished it off with some Ospho to kill the rust. Need to prep the fan and manifold before I start painting.

Finally got around to spraying some epoxy primer on the cub engine.

Make sure you remove the paint where the starter mounts. It need to be a clean metal surface in order to provide the ground for the starter.

Also, depending on your electric system, the mounting surface for a voltage regulator or alternator.

While looking through the boxes of cub parts that we have I picked up a fan assy and thought the blades looked short. When I compared it to this power unit fan assy sure enough the power unit fan is larger diameter. Also looks like the drive pulley is bigger diameter. Guess I need to clean up another fan to use for this tractor.

Cleaned up the air cleaner and a correct fan assy. I'll get them primed tomorrow.

Primed the air cleaner, but the fan shaft was stuck. It wasn't bad and broke free easily with a wrench on it. Decided to take it apart, which was a good thing. must have had water in it at one time and got a little rusty along with some sludge build up. Ran the pulley/hub thru the sandblast cabinet to clean it up and wire brushed the shaft followed by some emery cloth. Treated all of it with Ospho and will prime it tomorrow.

Your photos of the interior or the fan hub clearly show the small standpipe where the filler screw goes in. Good photo to educate new cub folks in the oiling process!

You should check to insure that the drain hole in the exhaust manifold is open. The attached photo has the opening marked with a black arrow.

I'll need to get the info on type of oil and filling procedure when I get it back together.
