Clark Thompson is on the east coast of northern Ohio... pretty close. We haven't heard much from him since he had health problems, but if he's able he can be counted on for a first class job. tractorman453657@aol.com

If I had a bit more time I would offer but a new house has completely drained my free time account. I know of two other people who could do a good job, one being my father. I will ask if he would be interested, but it would probally have to wait at least until fall. I am located in Bedford County and my father in Somerset County. I will check in with another person as well. Just a question. What shape is the cub in?

The cub is in pretty good shape... was used for cutting grass only.. has a 59" woods mower and was running fine till last week when it started to make some noise in the motor... we shut it down to try and save it... could be crank or bearings not sure... it has new rear tires last yr.. hydr works fine.. is very hard starting 6volt system , new battery and may need a new clutch ... was tuned up 2 yrs ago and has run fine till now...from what i see the hood is good except around the radiator cap some sanding and paint.... everything else is is good shape...oh there is no muffler just a straight pipe... could use a new carb or rebuild.. lights works too...... just get back to me and i can get some pictures too ya..
