Seems like you have the awesome luck of needing big/heavy parts for that cub!!! You couldn't just need a set of points, or a gasket???!! :lol:

The steering gaskets and bushing seals, and the radiator gaskets pulse and " while the hood is off" parts you need. Rivets to change the sn plate.

I would get the bolster from JP tractor ( bee below) They sandblast and inspect them. I bought a used one and the first thing I had to do is get it blasted. You also should use Glyptal on the "wet" surfaces inside.
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!
