    Merging the IH and CCC tractor sections together. This post is for that purpose.

    Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!

    I've got a lot of Cubs in the barn....but I have more implements/attachments!

      That was actually harder than I thought it would be to do, lol. But I got it!

    I set the valve clearance on the 129. They were both a bit tight. It starts SO much better now. It would stall the starter every time it would hit when you were cranking it. I guess maybe the compression release wasn't working properly with improper valve clearance?
    I like yellow and white

      Good deal!
      If the valves are too tight, it probably was dumping too much compression to fire off well. Couldn't build enough speed to overcome the compression release.

        Did a little TLC to the 108 yesterday, It's my cart pulling and sprayer tractor. Anyway it has been in need of a head gasket for sometime. As you can see from the pics it was in need. Pulled the head resurfaced it, lapped and set the valves, and serviced the breather.

          Zippy next on the list is brakes, I'm getting tired of bumping trees to stop.
          Jay it should start and run better, but i'll have to wait for awhile to find out. I thought I had a head gasket but couldn't find it, so had to order one.

        Needed to move the 782 out of the shop for some added room. Turn the key - nothing! Battery voltage good, key signal to starter solenoid good, solenoid grounded - yup, jumped across the solenoid, cranks over fine. Bad solenoid. Luckily I had a new one in stock, installed it and moved the tractor. There's 25 minutes I won't get back!

          Hardly ever do I see a solenoid go bad.. but for some reason every one I have seen bad was on a 82 series! It's happened to one of my 782's and my 982 recently

        I put the chains and Cylops plow on the 1250. The lift rod was too big to go in the QL hole, so I had to use a chain for now. It actually works great as I can get more lift, which is necessary with the terrain on the mountain. Then I plowed some leaves to try it out.

          Wikipedia says 88, but it ain't always right. The 4 speed was a special order from the factory. I will ask him next time I see him if he ordered it or found it on the lot. I still kick him every so often for not getting the paint recall done. I guess he would have wanted more if it looked good tho. 😆

        I got the head gasket and got it installed, while I was waiting on parts and had the carb off, I decided to try my luck at the throttle shaft repair. It went well and was quite easy. I reinstalled everything, hit the starter and it turned over 3 times and fired off. Tuned in the carb and this little tractor has never run this good. I love it when a plan comes together.

            Good deal Larry.
            That's how it's supposed to go, but don't always work that away.

              I added a full length skid shoe to the blade on the 782. In the past I bolted a scrap piece of 2x4 to the bottom, eventually it breaks. I have a gravel driveway and it is never frozen when it snows, so the factory shoes just dig in and pull up more rock. I used a piece of pipe that was laying around and the same half inch bolts and washers I used for the 2x4. I was actually able to let the plow float as I cleaned up the mess today.

                Sunday we had a couple of inches of snow in SE Pa. So, put the 54" plow to its first test. Always enjoy playing in the snow, even it it is only 2-3". I use a 2x4 under the wear edge and skid shoes.

                  Looks great! A 54 inch blade came with my 1864 but I haven’t had the opportunity to try it out yet. What is the purpose of the 2x4, just to have a softer cutting edge?

                  The driveway is blacktop, but uneven due to age, tree roots and cracks. The wood does wear, but doesn't get caught in the uneven surface. Plus it protects the wear edge. The wood is only held on by the skid shoes.

                Brown truck backed into the driveway today and delivered a box of parts, Thanks to Tim Aka Olds. He has been tracking down parts for my steering upgrade on my 1450. I hope to get started on it soon. Now to get the parts cleaned and painted, I will start a thread when I start. Thanks Tim

                  What the heck Larry, Tim should've cleaned and painted them before shipping?

                  B9639F3D-EA69-40A0-A452-CB01035EC0B9.jpeg Finally decided to pay the my buddy what he wanted for his snowblower for my 3225.
                  Lets just say he didn’t want to sell it very bad. But it is nearly new and very nice shape.
