    KEEPS ME FROM GETTING BOARD AND BEING INSIDE WHERE THE WIFE CAN YELL AT ME FOR DOING SOMETHING WRONG.
    I THINK NEXT THE CUB 122 MAY GET ITS LOW RANGE INSTALLED. FEELING BRAVE.
    EITHER THAT OR FIXING UP THE CASE'S MOWER DECK. THATS STILL LEANING AGAINST THE WALL FROM LAST YEAR.
    JUST SHARING NO JEALOUSY NECESSARY:)..................
    REMEMBER IT DOESN'T HAPPEN WITHOUT THE PICS!!!!!

    Thanks Craig.
    Well today was a great day Hapco order came in stopped and picked up new fuel line and the 140 is now a healthy non smoking 40 year old. Took her out around the yard and down the road a bit raising and lowering the throttle . Carb needs dialed yet but was happy to have it running again. Now to install the new steering rod ends that came in today with the other stuff.

    Not sure but think deck is specifically for the 140 Greg

    Put the hood and headlights together and then installed hood back on tractor after muffler was removed.
    Did I say how much ****** fun it was reinstalling and aligning everything it was. Give me a round fender hood any day. Then came the grill, more ****** fun installing correctly not scratching what little bit of repainting was done.
    Then a little easier task. Repainting steering linkage and installing new outer end on both sides. Removed the black metal around the rubber foot pads to repaint. Just some detailing not a restoration .
    Deck will be in soon to see how she does.
    Thinking hard of snowblower and building permanent cab for it . Then the Case would be sold off ........

    Front ends together all parts are back on.
    Not sure what’s next with it. Put deck on and break in engine?
    May take fender deck off to see what’s hiding under there. May get lazy too.
    I did dig the Cub 122 out and may try installing the creeper gear set up.

    Square hoods are easy to take on an off then pull the headlight panel drop or remove the grill. On another note it looks great

    so you say Greg...................:p

    for the right numbers it could be Chaser. I need to add all my slips up yet. Not sure I want to see that investment.

    I know what you mean. I always keep my receipts when working on a project. Never take the time to add them up. I'd hate for the wife to see those totals.

    Just added mine up. Oops did not expect it to be that high. Think I should count what was needed like the gasket set, piston , rings. air cleaner and points
    and not all the steering ends,stickers,plugs for front ports, etc.
    Was possibly thinking about a set of new tires all around. Tru powers in rear and the tri ribs in front. That may wait.

    Yes I was surprised never really bothered either. Do what it needs , fix it up etc .As long as happy with the finished product it doesn’t matter.
