Cub Cadet side by side

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Fri Dec 08, 2017 12:48 pm

Neighbor had one he was having trouble with, and I was helping him with it. The F-N-R shift is vacuum operated, and the engine has to idle down enough for the centrifugal pulley to allow the drive train to stop before it will shift (2004 model). This one had a problem that it would not idle down enough to shift. The neutral light was on and I had the brakes locked, and the bed up checking the linkage, when I used a broom handle to press the gas pedal trying to see why it would not drop to idle. The shift indicator was lying, it was in reverse! The brakes on those things are not very good, and it tried to run over me, but I stopped it with my right leg against the step and upper part of passenger compartment. I have the bruises to prove it too. MY leg is sore, but improving, and yes, I found the problem.

When I completely removed the air cleaner assembly so I could see the carburetor and rest of the linkage there was a whole pile of small twigs down alongside the carburetor nested in the V between the cylinders and those twigs were binding the throttle rod. It had set for a while last summer and I assume a small bird had started a nest there. Once that was all cleaned out, everything was fine but me. :(

John,
You need to be careful - remember I want to come over in the spring to plow your garden again.

Your lucky.

I fell off the seat in reverse, it ran over my shin. It was coming back again round two. I rolled out of the way. The clutch disc was stuck so I bumped a tree, she didn’t free but went up the tree.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Update, just got out of the hospital after 2 days of antibiotic IVs. One of my bruises turned into cellulitis, and was not responding to the prescription antibiotics so Dr. admitted me to hospital and put me on a different one via IV. The cellulitis started improving so now I am back home taking the different IV antibiotic in tablet from.

If anyone could manage to take a tablet via IV, I'm sure you could do it. :|

Take care of yourself.

Gotta go slow John. There’s no big S on our chest (Superman). We’re not young anymore it takes more time to heal. I have more close calls with cub cadets. I’m cursed. Well my morphine bottle says not to operate machinery. My sons do that now.

This one cub cadet got me twice now. I’m thinking it’s out to get me. It’s got a mind of its own. I could turn it into parts. Lol.
