Before I get in any trouble I need a little help folks. I have just returned from purchasing my second 318, but it don't have an emblem. I looked at my other 318 and it don't have one anymore. It did last week. I thought I had installed per spec but it has fallen off twice. I have not found it this time yet. So before, you know who, sees my herd again I need to know if there is a trick to keeping these things on. And I am still looking before I order two or maybe I should just go ahead and order two. Help. Oh yea I bought the 318, nice shape, no smoke, 875 hours, deck great, 54" 4way blade, from a Cub dealer.

Oh, holy crap. Somebody better notify the KATT Police.

My emblem came with two little button clips, and whenever I get around to mounting it, I will superglue those bad boys on there because these little clips won't hold the emblem very well I believe. No wonder so many of them don't have an emblem anymore, as they were either ripped off during grille removal, or they simply vibrated off of the grille.

I used a piece of steel strap between the two prongs on the back and then ran the button clips down on that. Nice and sturdy!

That is what I did the second time around. I guess supper glue is the next step either way, if I find the old one or the new emblems. Thanks

Only problem is I don't mow with the 318 I lost the emblem from. It has a loader on it so it is probably been buried in some dirt I have been moving around. I sure hate to have to dig up all my wife's flower beds but I HAVE to have it back. I have decided to order two new emblems, then I will have a spare if I find the lost one. And I will not have to worry about You Know Who typing anything.
