Hi folks, I have a 5 year old son who is completely consumed by anything mechanical. He just got a new set of tools for christmas, he is enthuzed mostly by tractor pulling, I just bought a IH Cub 104, I just need some input on this tractor. Is the drivetrain one of CC's strong ones? And will this make ya good pulling machine? I have a 5 year old to Impress and need some info. where is a good place to start?

Re: New Guy Here

That is one of the "good OLD ones"...rugged transmission and rear end in those,--you can find out much more on the IHC tractor forum page here about it..
I recall reading those had a ring & pinion the same as a 60's Dodge Dart used...pretty beefy for a garden tractor..and the transmission is also used in the "Low-Boy" bigger tractors also..I see many of those at tractor pulls and they do quite well even bone stock..

Re: New Guy Here

The guys that I pull against that run Cub Cadets of that vintage very seldom have problems with the rear end. I've never seen one get pulled off the track with the back wheels locked up. Usually if it'll still run they can get it loaded. Very strong drive train, depending on what you do to the engine and how heavy you pull it, you might need to do some clutch work but the guys that pull these would know way more than me.

What can you do with a hopeless addiction on a limited budget in a small area? Get a bunch of garden tractors and hope the city doesn't find out.
Brands I have:Cub Cadet, John Deere, Allis Chalmers, Minneapolis Moline, Case, Ford, Simplicity, Massey Ferguson, Wheel Horse, Panzer, Montgomery Wards, David Bradley, Sears, Bolens, Craftsman, MTD, Snapper, Roof, Springfield, Green Midget, Gemini, Lawnboy, Ariens, Coast to Coast and Big Mow.

That being said, at our first July pull, we had a guy bust his differential carrier in the 1400 lb open class. He still won and could roll.
