That engine looks beautiful! Keep up the good work, and that tractor will be a show winner! The smile says it all!
If you own 1 tractor you have a interest
If you own 2 tractors you have a hobby
If you own 3 tractors you have an addiction
Anything over that..well your incurable! :lol:

You're doing a great job on the restore. Good luck with your presentation tomorrow. I'm sure you are going to educate some folks.

Hi, i took off the left fender on my cub with no problems, but when I went to take off the right one, I noticed that of the 6 bolts holding the wheel on, I would have to take 4 of them off to get the fender off. Is it safe to take out the four bolts, or should I put something underneath the tractor to hold it up?

I guess you are taking both rear fenders off.
They are both held on the same way, with 4, 3/8" bolts.
There are 6 bolts in a circle, they hold the final drives on the tractor. You would be removing the top 4 bolts, be sure the bottom 2 bolts are there, and tight, and the threads not stripped or worn on the left side. The right side has nuts on the bolts.
You could jack up the rear to support the weight if you want. Don't drive it with the bolts removed. :)

Below is a pic from TM Tractor of a final drive, you can see the 6 bolt holes, there should be 2 dowel pins also, at the top and bottom holes.
