Finally got my Cub back together..

Postby smars4444 » Tue Jun 17, 2014 5:46 am

attachment=0]Cub.6.14.JPG[/attachment]Took the hood off to change the belts :lol: Ended up putting in a new wiring harness from Brillman's, replaced broken generator tension bracket, had starter and generator rebuilt, replaced badly rusted rear rims, new front tires and new rattle can paint job. Oh, forgot to mention replaced the front grill thanks to Dale Finch!
