Welcome to the forum Jim! I have a few Lo-boys myself. They are great for mowing and pushing snow. They can be used for Plowing and disking gardens too, but I use my regular Cub for that. Be careful with those head bolts, they tend to break. The best approach to removing them is to use an impact on low pressure and rattle them loose.
Check out the CubFest announcements forum for a Cub event near you. A CubFest is a good place to meet some of the best Cub guys around.
I don't believe in taking the bull by the horns. I took a goat by the horns once and that was enough excitement for me.

Welcome to the forum Jim and congratulations on getting your first Cub!
I would suggest downloading and reading some of the manuals available on this site to become a little more familiar with your Cub. Also suggest taking some time to evaluate things thoroughly before digging in. The antifreeze smell could be a leak elsewhere (inlet hose?) and once the hood comes off it creates a strange phenomenon; “while I am at it I might as well…..”
You appear to be about an hour and a half away from a CubFest that will be in April:
CubFests are a great time and a good chance to learn a lot about your Cub, you should try to come if you can.
Best of luck,
Welcome Aboard, there is a lot of knowledge to be accessed at this site, also many very fine folks. I would encourage you to go to a Cub fest and start learning to know the fellow Cub enthusiast, that has been very rewarding to me.
I seem to know more and more about less and less, soon I'll know everything about nothing !
Welcome to the Forum!
Congratulations on getting your Cub! If there is anything we can do, let us know.
Welcome to the board Jim. Been thru Vincennes many times in my days, my youngest sister and her husband live there, good to see another Hoosier join the board.
Welcome to the Forum from a fellow Hoosier (acually a Boilermaker), hope to meet you at a Cubfest one of these days.

Welcome aboard, as Bill said, be sure to check out the announcements page for a cub fest near you. I actually come down to Vincennes at least once a year to bring a gas tank and radiator to get backed and boiled, there by the high school. Straight shot down high one. Be sure to click the link below my signature on DocFest, coming up in April. Be good to meet you.

G'day and congrats on your new to you Lo-Boy
