    Another 1050 project.

    I won 2 auctions on the FB page. $25 apiece. One for the hood and side panels and the other for a 1050 minus the rear end. Motor looks clean, turns, and has compression. I have a cast rear to put in. The DC and Baltimore beltways wore me out, so here's some pictures.

        Thanks Brian! That's the plan.

        Todd, I am going to get it back to a running tractor to start. After that I am not really sure yet. If all goes as planned I would like to put the 44" deck I have on it and cut the grass once this year. The main thing is keeping it out of the scrap yard!


        I got the trans on temporary and did some cleaning this morning. I may pull the steering column out and tighten it up later. Gonna get my initial parts list made up and stop by the cub dealer tomorrow. IMG_20190331_140730772_HDR.jpg

            Thata "boy" Travis, keeping them from the scrap heap is our job.
            Gotta keep these good "old" machines going.

              Nice Travis!
              I think the best thing to do with a 1050 is put a bigger engine in it!!! Wadya say?

                I might disagree with that. I am happy happy happy!

                  Got alot of small things done the past 2 days. Took the lift button out and cleaned it up and made a float pin. Shortened up the brake rod. Had to bend the arm the clutch switch and return spring mount to, as the spring was rubbing the rockshaft and making a horrible noise. Replaced the noisy PTO bearing. I used the lengthened driveshaft from the 122, that donated the trans, to measure the driveshaft length. I got the front trans to frame bolts in. I loosened up the rear ones and jacked up the front and they lined up with the holes right in front of ones for the aluminum trans. Cleaned out the diff and put new fluid in. Lubed up the brake and rockshaft. Picking up some parts Saturday. Hope to be driving it by Monday.

                  Oh, and apparently the cam stop is different from a hydro lift. I borrowed the one from the 1862. I will have to find one, I guess.

                          I installed new engine mount bushings and steering box gasket today. My clutch driver showed up and I got the driveshaft cut and drilled. Borrowed the 2072s seat and went for a test drive.

                            There you go Travis!

                            On the cam stop..... I thought it was the same as the hydro tractors. I don't think mine had one when I got it..... but now that you mention it, it does seem like it was different than...??? Maybe I used one from a QL on it?

                              I looked up the 1862 and 1050. The numbers are the same part number. It definitely doesn't work like it's supposed to. I will compare it to the 782 tomorrow.
