Rebuilt the C-3 mower

Postby Ben B » Sun Aug 12, 2018 3:38 pm

Well, I finally finished rebuilding my C-3 mower. It's not a perfect restoration by any means, but it is mechanically restored and has a nice new coat of paint. I put it to work and it's doing a great job! My thanks go out to those who sold me the parts to fix it, and the threads about dealing with the pulleys and rebuilding the spindles.

Now, I want to fabricate some belt guards for it that look correct. They were never with the thing when I got it. Also, I need to replace the broken piece of angle iron on the right side so I can correctly mount the right skid.

The deck and Cub certainly look nice to me. I'd be getting over my head to say more, fellow Virginian :)

Curious as to where to obtain parts to rebuild a C3.
This winter Id like to purchase belts , skids, blades and bearings for all 3 spindles .
I did find a doner unit in which I salvaged the spindles and casters .
Everything else was rotted and cracked .
