I think most people would agree, at least on this forum, that repairing and keeping the older IH Cub Cadet going is more cost effective than most "box store bargains", especially in the long run. Unfortunately the IH Cub Cadets don't bring the money comparable, seems like their value is decreasing. Most people want either something shiny and new or a bargain to justify investing in. I would buy the one in question here for $1k before I would spend comparable money on new junk, but reality is they are out there for what Eugene and I have suggested.
The last 122 I bought needed a voltage regulator and a little tweaking, I think I paid $275 for it. It had a replacement engine in it and the paint was original, but pretty good shape. I gave it to my son and he has mowed with it for several years now with virtual no issues.

Back to the original post/question, it's worth what you are comfortable spending, you have been given some food for thought to make a decision. Even a 100% restored CC will likely have issues, sooner or later, but should be something you would be able to address.

Best of luck,

I had several Cub Cadets in the past, most of them narrow frames, and most of them 104s. I sold/traded them all a way, but now I wish I would find another narrow frame Cub Cadet, mainly a 100, or another 104. I've seen them on the local CL, but some are just parts tractors, and others are overpriced, and then others have been ruined trying to make them into pullers. I'm in no hurry, though, as something would have to be sold first to make room and to somehow make the wife less perturbed with me.

About 10 years ago I paid $400 for a 122 from the orginal owner, running with a new Kohler 12hp replacement engine. The front end steering needs help but I wanted it for the $2k new engine. Anyone who knows cub cadets the 122 is sought after. In restored condition it’s worth between $1,000 to $1,500 if we compare them to the throwaway mowers of today.

I went to purchase a new 54” cut Husqvarna mower and the first thing the misses asks is what attachments does it take? It’s just a mower. So I purchased my 154’s and cub cadets.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
