I was wondering if you got the left brake and clutch pedals freed up from each other. Then I noticed the skidding left tire when you were stopping. Answered that question.

That tends to happen when someone is selling old iron. The offerer is always hoping the seller doesn't know any better. I have had sellers tell me that guys would offer low amounts and tell them a Cub only weighs half of what it really does. I wasn't surprised when you said you had a couple of $100.00 offers. Those guys knew it was worth much more than that. I bought a Cub in Alabama a couple of years ago on my way to Florida. The seller said he had one guy who kept telling him his Cub wouldn't bring $100 at scrap and he'd be better off selling it to him. That was when scrap was $250.00 a ton.

I told you I would do my best to keep it from going as a donor and fortunately it has happened. When you said how your grandfather had used it I figured it deserved another chance. I think he would be happy to see it running again. It is far from done, but it has taken a big step forward.

Jim, I got the pedal to move far enough that at least the clutch would work. I figured the tractor had to come to a stop when shifting anyway so why not let the brake work with the clutch. :lol: A little more gentle persuasion and I think that brake pedal will free itself. Of course there are a lot of other stuck parts on it I have to deal with.
