Default Pics of my Cub 108

Hello Everyone!

I finally got a few minutes to take some pics of my recently acquired Cub Cadet 108.





The dump cart and plow blade came with it.

The contents of the fuel tank looked like this:


And the float bowl had this green and black stuff in it:


The float is coated with the green stuff, too, and it doesn't seem to want to come off with carb cleaner. Any ideas?

The 108 looks pretty good.

I purchased a gallon ( paint can type ) container of Berryman's Carb Cleaner at my local Auto Zone for about $20. It has a strainer in the container.

Your carb looks sparkling clean compared to the carb on my 122. A 20 minute soak followed by a water rinse ( per directions on the can ) worked wonders. I did find out I had a slight pin hole in my float as it made a sloshing sound when I shook it after rinsing but I already had another one.

Berkebile Gum Cutter is second on my list on favorite carb cleaners. That comes in a spray can for about $3-$4

That's a nice IH number 2 dump cart. Got a friend who has one and they won't sell it even though they don't have a Cub anymore. It looks kind of funny behind there Simplicity.

Jeff, I took your advice and bought the Berryman's can, so I'll be pulling the carb off. I was able to get the carburator repair kit at the NAPA down the street, so that'll be fun.

As for the #2 dump cart, shortly after I picked this one up, I saw one for sale online (can't remember where) in similar shape, for $275! I only paid $300 for the whole setup.

Before I attempt to start the engine, I have a new plug, new fuel line, fuel filter and air filter, and a new battery. I'm also going to change the oil. Am I forgetting anything?
