Hi, From PA
I work at a forklift service and repair business in the parts department so I am familiar with parts lookup and parts manuals.
I have a Cub 154 Lo-Boy with mower deck. It is in decent condition the engine runs good.
I would like to replace the wiring on the tractor as they are brittle and the coating is peeling off.
Also the alternator needs rebuilt and need a new muffler and some shields to cover the pulley behind the seat.
Does anybody have suggestions on how best to remove the old muffler as it looks like it is rusted tight at the pipe threads.
As soon as I figure out how to paste a picture I will

On removing the muffler, you can start by soaking those threads in your favorite penetrant. PB Blaster and Kroil are two good ones. After several weeks of repeated applications try some heat. Let us know if you are successful.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

Welcome aboard, eyehook! The 154 was equipped with a starter/generator and did not have an alternator. Please clarify what you have.

Welcome to the Forum, eyehook!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

Now that you’ve logged your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=11

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

Take some pictures of your tractor and post them, we’d like to see it.

Remember:
  • Pictures are limited to 500 KB file size. Use an image reducer app or program to downsize pics.
  • When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
  • Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
  • When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.
