Hi, just found this sight and have been reading alot. My son had a 56 cub given to him when my dad passes away, just got it out of storrage yesterday. it is in great condition and runs great. it has a woods mower on it. we will now be starting the task of restoring it. mainly cleaning it up and painting it. i like what i have read here already and can see everyone is very helpful. i may need to get help with some things so be ready to have your brains picked. :D
