If the area around the spark plug is dirty like it was and you want to blow it off.Stick some paper or a cloth down the hole and then spray the area off.I prefer to use a a piece of rag so if you need too you can use pliers to pull it out when done.

three point hitch huh. the only cub cadets that had a three point hitch were the 782 diesels that one would have a brinely hitch. and optional hydraulic lift and outlets for hydro swing plow.

@Diesel Creek I'm just saying we own about as many as you but the only one that has a true three point is the 782 diesel. Cool video otherwise

Mmmm. Based on what I see of the left front tire, at 15:28, make that 3 out of 4 held air. Just say'in. For what it looked like, mouse-wise, it turned out very well, not too bad of a job. Congrats. Thanks for the video.

Matt's Bumblebee "Yellow" Shop > @40:02, the Cub, the Galion Grill, and an air tank. Almost all the same shade of yellow. Grandma had a '68, with the automotive type snow tires on the rear. Dad would let me loose on it to mow the acreage whilst they sat on the porch sipping brews. Wish I had that tractor now. And she wants to run and shred some grass!

it is true that kohlor engines do have a life time warrenty on there engines don,t bekeave me then call or get ahold of a kohlor dealer yourself and you.ll see rgar i,m right i,ve done it more than once in my life that i turn in my blown kohlor engine for a new one and it didn,t cost me a thing thats how i know as i.ve done it myself a couple of times the only part you turn in is the block piston rod and crank shaft all in one piece you keep all the rest of your parts to use on the new engine that you get and you have to go to a kohlor dealer to get this as most small engine dealer and mower shops don,t know about this it only a kohlor dealer thatr can do this o pss it don,t matter how old your engine is they,ll warrenty it

I’ve worked on a lot of those old tractors cubs When they were heavy duty , working now on a 54 inch new cub cadet ,it’s just destroyed there’s such a piece of junk now ,it’s not even funny but most people don’t know that less they worked on the old ones like you’re working on and I’ve seen them, & old Toro’s / wheel horse tractors,with the Kohler K series used to refurbish a lot of them & rebuild the engines back a few years ago ,for people for nostalgic reasons, had a power equip store for 20 yrs , mostly commercial eguip, ag , equip repair , still do some, any way ,good work good vids 👍👍might wanna wear a good mask though with that mouse stuff when you’re getting it out because it can make it pretty sick !!

My 129 locked up today, popped the head sprayed some fluid film onto the piston n valves beat the piston with a piece of 2x4 and a hammer broke it free spun her over put it back together, and wham she fired right up like nothing happened. Them K301's are indestructible by far....my 129 is a 76 with the 12 HP K301

Excellent video! I think I detected some rod knock though. I rebuilt a 10 horse Kohler some years ago in a JD 210. The engine runs fine, but I think I have some rod knock also. Maybe this is the nature of the Kohler of this vintage.

Great video, you make it look easy working on this thing. I doubt I'll every have an old Cub Cadet to work on but if I do I know where to look. It's a shame how many lawn tractors wind up in the scrap yard, especially the old heavy duty ones.

First Every used cub cadet I get needs a headgasket. Second they need a new aircleaner. When the air cleaner is rotted most likely the cylinder is scored from dirt. The PO beat these machines to death. But I find every used cub cadet parts tractor i buy will run. Clean the points, the carb, new headgasket.

This video just gave me a great idea to go find one of these and restore it with my old man (Hes 35 year veteran of collision repair). He likes tinkering on things and I need a rider mower anyway. Plus it would be far cheaper than another car restoration! (Ive already got a chevy squarebody im digging into atm)

@Diesel Creek OK a walk behind is different ,and the heavy flywheel of a kolher does give more toque but the quicker response of the Honda Governor is just like toque. All my life flat head engines have always let me down .I love new engines on old transmissions.

@Diesel Creek The way the drive shaft mounts to the front would make it too hard I think .I have 5 old gravelys I got rid of the old kolhers and re powered with gx 390"s, lighter weight no battery or charging system less gasoline and more reliable .The adapter kit is $300 though.

I got a 129 cub cadet im putting a honda gx390 if you do this swap you're going to have to modify the frame electrical system and even the hood i want to put a honda on it is because I've never seen it done and the honda has electronic ignition not points because I do not have the tools for points and its an experimental project sadly I do not have an original 12 hp kohler which kohler does makes good engines

My Grandparents bought 200acres of property inUpstate New York the property was almost divided perfectly even by a County dirt road they picked one side to build their home on and my Grandpa also loved his CubCadets I remember him complaining when they were sold out and not built with all the quality the first ones were he was always modifying one machine to push snow and tuna snowblower mounted onthe front inthe summer months he was constantly playing with additional weight to gain traction for the snow as they had a pretty large driveway that was about a quarter of a mile when they did change in quality I know my Grandfather would drive just about anywhere to get one of the old ones last I knew one of my Cousins was still using one of the machines as a riding mower and he did have some of the accessories from my Grandparents garage

Still have an original model 72, still with creeper gear. She cuts grass, and runs like a top! But the Scag does the job 6 hours faster and stripes quite better. I love looking at the deck, seeing the wood deck rollers. It's so nostalgic and a showpiece. When my friend and I were in grade school, we started a business with the 72, 128, and got a 147 as a backup! Those days are long behind us, but that 72 is priceless to us!
