Now I have a problem-my Cub saw those pics and thinks all Cubs look like that ! Next thing my Cub will want is new tires, paint, tune up--I need some beat up Cub pics to leave around before my tractor revolts and drives away.
Seriously-they look great-nice work

You're right Ralph, you should have a barn full of cub cadets this morning.

They sure are quite the pair. You know BD wouldn't mind some cub cadets running around. I'm sure he would adopt them since he is a kind person like that :lol:

Ralph, yer killin me!
Can I use your nice garage as an excuse?? (mine has 2 truck campers in front of it and the 86 Town Car is stuck in a snow bank, Rufus couldn't escape if he tried)
Possibly I should ban beer from the garage? (nope nothing would get done)
I have got to give you credit, that is a fine looking team.

Question... you painted the starters black, but the generators are yeller. I did the opposite, mostly because when I started to clean up the generator it was just too much of a mess so I took it to the old guy in the bigger city to rebuild it and he offered to paint it black and I said ok. I painted the coil and regulator black too. Is it just your preference?

Ralph,
Those are two of the most beautiful yellow and white Cubs i've seen. I'm so taken, i was wondering if i could print that picture off to show my grandpa? (Long time IH lover and former employee) and also a restorer of Cub Cadets, and i know he'd love to see your cubs. Keep up with such fine work!!!
