When I was putting my 48 together, i noticed that the steering shaft was forced to the right by the support. I put a piece of cheater pipe on it and bent it back. The previous owner may have had a day that was similar to yours.

My Cub is in the barn on gravel with a slight incline. The rear carrier is attached and a stand alone rototiller (Husqvarna) is on it for some repairs. I lift the rear carrier and thus the rototiller to make repair work easier on the back. But the Cub is in N because everything has to stay in place and I too don't trust the brake pedals to hold against anything. Two short wood 4x4 pieces, one firmly under each rear wheel, is what I use to keep the Cub in place. If I bothered to put the brakes on it would be belt-and-suspenders and that's all to the good. Should do that before hoisting that rototiller today....

The thought of the Cub rolling with no one aboard is beyond frightening.

Glad you are ok, here is a funny thing that happened a while back. My neighbor and his wife came over hot, frustrated, at the end of their wits. They had been pulling tree stumps with their old Oliver. Well I went down to their place and they had the old girl about half buried trying to pull a stump and didn't know what to do. I looked at it a minute and then had the answer. Hey Elmer, just untie the chain and back out..

Part of owning a tractor is driving it down over a bank once or twice in a life time. In a ditch somtimes and getting it stuck in tye mud about 3000 times a year lol. I'm glad everyones ok, I hope the cubs ok too it looks like a nice one
