Project 2182 - Build Thread

New to the forum. Have been lurking around awhile and thought i would join to share a build with you guys. Not my first resto, or Cub, but it is my first Cub resto and any advice, opinions or thoughts are greatly appreciated.

I picked this 2182 up in February and it was a hot mess. Complete tractor, running engine and everything worked but needed attention. When i finally got around to messin with it, noticed that when engine warmed up it had a noticeable knock in the midrange rpm. Also was pouring oil from the front seal. I had planned to replace the seal and use it this season but during the process of replacing the seal, I noticed the crank had a good amount of play so i pulled the motor. And it was a good choice. Number 1 main was beat on pretty good and number 3 main had spun a bearing in its cap even tho the tractor had 25lbs of oil pressure warm. Anyway I had thought the crank was graveyard dead but I sent it off to Engine Power Source out of Rock Hill SC to see if it was salvageable and it turned out it was. So i ordered the corresponding bearings, new bearing carrier, rings and a full gasket kit etc.

In the meantime, I figured with the money i had just spent on engine parts, I wasnt about to put a brand new engine in a mediocre frame so I went ahead and started the whole build. Recently I have been cleaning parts, ordering parts and making a list of odds and ends stuff and this is where I am at with it. I will be posting the pics that i have taken up til now and will continue thru out the build. As mentioned earlier, any opinions, thoughts, or advice is highly welcome

Thanks

Here are some pics i took when i was buying it

Re: Project 2182 - Build Thread

more cleaning and painting. i decided to go with a brighter blue for the engine and polish or clean all of the aluminum engine parts instead of painting the entire thing once it was all together. dang kubota even paints the rubber hoses

Well the old man was kinda hard to understand and for what I gave for it I didn't ask too many questions. My guess is with that low of hours is it was ran low of oil. Givin the way that seal was leaking it could have happened really fast. In his defense tho, the low oil light bulb I found out later was also burnt out. Weird thing is I can't believe it didn't make any more noise than it did and it had really good oil pressure (mechanical gauge) almost 60 cold and 20-30 warmed up.

Another reason I will be running mechanical gauges on this machine. I just don't trust those lights. I plan on getting this template lasered with thin aluminum or stainless
