well guys today i did nothing but work on the case i got the starter button to work on it add on unit and i got the deck back into shapre i think but i got to adjust the clutch some more i dont think i got it tight enough yet lol is slow to enguage the deck but hey im making progress i did discover today that it surges hopefully due to a low oil level and also that one of the rims are on backwards and i swapped out the seat today too and there was alot of work in that deck the brackets were all messed up none of the right pins were in it and i had to make a few shims to take some of the slop out thinking this will be my highest bill to date and oh yeah i put a new airfilter in it too today it didnt have one at all

don't know if you knew this or not nate but that cub has the original skinny tires on it.I'm not kidden you one bit ,i've sold those tires and wheels for $200,Don't know with the economy they would still go that high but I bet still $150.00 The same with the old style cub chrome hubcaps I've sold rusty IH hubcaps for $250 about three years ago.:Pricey stuff man if you find the rare items.Also a set of cub round fenders will go over $200 most of the time.

today was fairly productive sold one riding mower and sold my decks for the 210 then i went and bought a craftsman GT series the motor is toast but its all there good lookin unit and a ranch king lt motor is toast also i have a 15 hp kohler for it though so it should be a good mower yet as for the craftsman its got a 25 hp engine in it so i will have to find something a little bit closer in hp for it but its got lots of potential

Nice, Nate - I was considering the Ranch King and looking at the craftsman... did you get them at a good price? Forgive my ignorance, but will the Kohler drive shaft match up in the Ranch King... I thought it had a 20hp Briggs in it to start, but could be wrong...

yeah its still a one inch output shaft it will line up great yet thingk about it its only got to be pretyy clsoe in height diff to work cuse the deck moves up and down and they still work lol thats like alot off center lol! worst case i alter the pulley a litte by adding washers to move it down if my shaft is too short oh yeah man i paid 230 between the two of them it was a decent deal i can still make money by only getting one of them to run for now the other will sit for a while were u the one that put an offer on the craftsman at 125 if so man sorry i beat ya out but it was a last minute deal had the ranch king locked in and was lookin to make it worht the trip there

dont blame you, thats one John Deere I would like to have, the 400. would prefer the 430 but beggers cant be choosers, I would even settle for a good 420. Anything smaller I would just sell. Gotsta have my belly and leg room.
