I've been lurking around a few weeks and figured maybe I should finally join since there is a ton of info on here, maybe I can even give out some info at some point. I just recently bought a Cub Cadet Model 123 strictly as a fun project. been working on tearing it down and rebuilding it. Trying to document everything I do on youtube so people can show me where I go wrong. I have very little experience with engines which is why I bought it in the first place. I'll see everyone in the cub cadet forum! And I'll be lurking in the others just to see what's going on.

Welcome! Sounds like a really cool project.

Also, please post the videos when you get a chance (if you took any yet). There's a number of really cool restorations of cub cadets on youtube if you do a search that you should check out if you haven't already.

Welcome! If you have some videos up already, post a link to them here.

Next, check this Cub Cadet 129 restoration out at this guy's youtube channel:

....and in a shameless plug, here's my channel which contains 13 videos to date of a 1967 Sears Suburban restoration.

:p

SaturnV, to be honest, your video of you restoring your sears suburban is what got me interested in rebuilding an old garden tractor. From your channel, I found 500Passwords' and have watched both his 129 and his wheel horse restore a few times trying to catch pointers. I'm pulse301 on youtube also, I'm subscribed to both of you.

here are my 3 videos so far (in order):

I've also started a blog: http://ihcc123.blogspot.com/

I'm a couple videos behind on the blog. I found that I like commentating more than I like typing, haha.

This weekend I gotta take a look at my throttle linkage on my carb. I didn't remove it during the carb rebuild, which probably means I melted the bushing...but like someone said, you get the experience right after you need it. I also plan on doing some more dismantling this weekend, since i need to get the engine out and figure out the knock.

Ok, terrific.

I was inspired to get into this hobby by ol' 500. I actually wanted a Cub in the first place, but kept getting beat by other craigslisters by mere moments. So when I cam across the Suburban, I jumped. I should have just relaxed and kept after the Cub, but as it turns out I've had a blast with the Suburban, and eventually backed into the 882 which turned out to be fairly rare. Once you get your first 2 or 3 tractors, the things start multiplying in your shop. :fing32:

I'm off to watch your videos now.
