1  Mower Building / Setup Help / Garden Tractor Pulling / Re: CUB on: May 01, 2014, 12:33:55 PM
I was searching the parts breakdown for the transmission and came upon partstree.com but there are many parts not available there. Specifically the bearing assembly, countershaft rear roller. I have no idea what shape the transmission is in but I would like to know the best place to source the parts before I tear into it. Are there any rebuild kits available for these transmissions other than the gear sets and such that are available. I am thinking that I want to just build it up stock for now.

No it is all bolted as original! There were just a lot of holes rusted through in the foot rests and I cut the spotwelds on the fender insert piece sandblasted it used weldthrough primer and welded it back together. It was pretty rusted too. Had to replace a couple of nuts too that were welded on the braces for the foot rests.

This was the winter project. Well part of the winter!



Seems like I get them started but.....
Will see what happens.
Had a lot of welding practice on this one!

OOPS!!!!! I moved some pix around and broke some links for some pix in a couple of earlier posts! I haven't given up on the craftsman. Over the winter I have been working on the cub that I found last summer just finished all the bodywork/welding and the primer. It was a lot of work but I think it came out pretty good!

I went to the scrap yard  a few days ago. Didn't find any copper, but I found a chunk of red brass. Tried it today and it worked great, however I am going to try the grinding wheel idea too. Seems like it should work.

you have to reverse polarity on the lincoln that I have if I remember right
10  General / Coffee Shop / Re: weld through primer on: December 21, 2012, 08:03:56 AM
let me be more specific is there a big difference in brands of weldthrough primer 3M being quite a bit more. Is it that much better?
11  General / Coffee Shop / weld through primer on: December 20, 2012, 07:48:59 PM
Is 3M weldthrough primer really worth the extra money?

Excellent sprint car races last night! They had a couple of old school cars on display. Here is one of them.

Or you could look at it like this...
That piece of junk isn't worth the metal they ruined building it....building a race mower out of it would actually make it worth the space its taking up on this planet.
