    1962 Cub Cadet Original

    I reckon I need to get at it a refinish dad's in resto-mod style, @TIGman, looks darn good to me, I basically grew up on ours when dad bought it used in '77/78, thanks for sharing, Jeff. Here's a pic right after dad and I "restored" it when I was 12 or 13 now 47 and one just a couple years ago.

    I Just Had to Have One

    Those Cub Cadet rears are actually Farmall Cub center sections with different axles/housings, that's why they are rather beefy/tough, but look at those old Panzer's with their Chrysler rears, all the different brands have their strong and weak points if one manufacturer had been great in all areas there wouldn't have all the cool old lawn and garden tractors we thirst after.... @T-Molooks like a really good specimen you have there, the Original was actually belt driven to clutch but the 70/100 was the first direct flywheel to clutch shaft driven.

    Snow Plow Frame Parts

    Got my parts welded on (with the ole 220 "buzz box" and some 6013 rods) today still need a few more like the angle rod and lever...

    I Just Had to Have One

    Good deal, I grew up on an Original and a 106 was my first (out on my own) garden tractor, still have the Original that has been upgraded with a 70s 8hp from a Gravely, and most of the cubs through the 90s were decent machines even after MTD took over in the mid 80s, Jeff.

    Snow Plow Frame Parts

    Thanks guys, thought I would share the easy(sq tubing) way to fix things like this, plus I gave the dimensions in the pics with the templates, (wife has been under the weather) so as she mends I'll try to get it welded together and painted up, Jeff.

    The brackets are the easy and cheap part, and I believe between 12-24" stroke would be what you need and thrust force should always be rated more than actual load.

    Eric if you want to make that trailer easier to unload you should look into a linear actuator, always thought about one for my 17 cu ft trailer, Jeff. https://www.robotshop.com/en/12vdc-24-stroke-force-linear-actuator.html

    Snow Plow Frame Parts

    Jim, I just don't understand why some people do the things they do, I'm guessing they cut all that off trying to fit it up to an ATV, but I'll make it usable again, other than the angle from seat parts missing, the frame and moldboard are in really decent shape.

    Snow Plow Frame Parts

    On the 42" wide snow plow I procured with the 315-8 purchase other than the angle lever MIA so was the attachment point as well as the triangle pivot for the "wire", so I made some cardboard templates from my other snow plow frame and on a slow morning at work made all the missing parts, 1) the lever attachment point was made from 1/8" wall 2.5" sq tubing all cut on a band saw but could use a cut off wheel on an angle or die grinder, and the bolt hole drill was done with a hand drill 17/32" for a 1/2-13 nut welded on the backside (if making a new angle lever 3/8" or 7/16" would work as well), 2) the flat stock for the triangle pivot was made from 3/8"x1" with a 25/64" hole for a 3/8'' diameter shoulder bolt, then 3) the triangle pivot itself made from 14ga mild stainless steel with two 3/16" holes for the wire and a 25/64" hole for the pivot bolt, I'll update as I get these parts welded on and functioning as intended, Jeff.
