I have storage space. I'll even make sure it gets run once in a while. :D Vern

I'll make the space - oh wait already done - If you struggle for space I'll take it off your hands - I'll even drive out there and pick it up - Leave it just as it is :D

Swap you a 78 Fcub for it that needs lots of tlc.

Remember me saying I would have all the room I needed in the New Home For My Cubs thread :?: Well, as some of the guys said, I is already out of room and I gots another Cub coming home :roll: :!: Looks like I am going to have to come up with another storage solution to keep me toys out of the weather :lol: So... build yourself a lean-to additin to your existing barn and poof there you go instant space :idea: :!:

Besides, you know the rule. 1 implement = 1 Cub. Less work that way. Trust me ... as we get older, changing implements a lot gets old real fast :lol:

Thanks guys. Somehow I knew that y'all would say keep her. :lol: Bob and Rodney suggested selling something else. Don did too but he was trying to start something.Image :lol: I never really though about selling something else. Image I usually don't sell much since most of my stuff isn't worth to much. So with their prompting I did a little looking today to see what I could live without. I do have a Cub Cadet Zero Turn mower that has a trashed engine and a 1974 John Deere 110 that could go (just to make Don happy). I have another John Deere 110, a 1966 round fendered that I could use to pull the lawn roller, yard cart, lawn spreader and sprayer if it ran, but that's another project. I don't think it will be too difficult get it going I just need the incentive to get on it. HmmmmImage With those two items gone, a Cub would fit nicely in their place. Now I just have to run that past the wife. :roll: I'm sure she will point out that I'd be lucky to half of what I paid for the Cub by selling those two mowers. I might have to find something else too.

As far as the Cub goes, I did prime the oil pump yesterday and hope to pick up a battery shortly so I can do a compression test to see where it's at. The story the previous owner gave me, and I believe him, was he was driving the Cub and the one of the front tires dropped in a hole his dog had dug and it stalled the engine. He was never able to get it started again. I don't know what would cause that to happen I just hope it's not a broken crankshaft :roll: but I think the problem will be minor.
