This was my first attempt to refurbish a cub, still got some more to do, like getting an emblem for the 1961 on the left side.
The cub I bought in June which was about to head to the scrape yard.

Seems I lucked out on the motor, so far at least. Still have to replace pto seal, and my attempt on welding the cut out hood leaves a lot to be desired, but anyway, up and running.

Looks good Randall, thanks for sharing.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Well done. I hate to see one end up in a scrapers hands.

Looks great! Most people have no idea how really difficult it is to take the old Cub to the finish you have done. Thanks for saving another one, too. Steve K.
