Cub Cadet 70 restoration

Recommended Posts

A little bit more done over the weekend, I have now fastened on the brake, clutch and linkages onto the tractor so that I can finish painting it together.

A new front axle pin was made and we used stainless steel grub screws instead of a roll pin which was used before.

Heres a photo once it had all had some more paint.

Not much done lately due to having lots of school work to do, here is a little update.

The wheels are all finished now.

You can just about see in this photo that a previous owner wanted to put a larger sized battery on the dash tower and so they had taken a hammer to one of the sides to break the spot weld so we set to work on replacing this piece.

This was the first piece to get replaced, the holes are where it was spot welded before.

Here is the replacement piece

This is the replacement side piece that we made.

The screws that held the tail light on had no head left so I drilled them out.

Luckily it came off and the original bulb still worked.

Lots of new stainless steel bolts and washers have been bought ready for the reassembly :)

Nice work Ewan, the wheels look great and the yellow is very bright B):D

I bet you were holding your breathe while drilling out the lens screws!

 

 

Yes, it wasn't a pleasant job!

BTW Ewan. Can you get lock nuts on the grub screws holding the front axle pin? Just an idea.

 

Possibly, might have a look at that.

All being well, I finish for a 19 week holiday tomorrow :D

Looks superb Ewan. What this about a 19 weeks holiday?

 

Tomorrow is my last day of sixth form, I have to go into school for exam revision and exams but officially I have left and then I start university in late September. Plenty of time to be projecting :D
