shop oriented topic... I work on it in my shop....
Last year I replaced my '80 model 1250 Cub Cadet with a new 20 hp 2300
series? the new one is pretty and cuts well? but I have to admit it isn't
in the league with the old 1250. The tractor and deck are in good shape for
a 20 year old mower but the engine is smoking terribly? this is the second
engine and has about 5 years of weekly use on it (in dusty environment.) A
new engine is around 800 bucks and I don't want to put that much in the
My question?. What to do with this good old mower ??? I don't know of any
engine rebuilders around here (Birmingham, Al) that I would recommend...
and that don't want nearly as much to rebuild as a new one ? is there a
market for old mowers like this for parts where I wouldn't just be giving
it away ??? anyone got a 12 hp Kohler for this mower ???
nothing is fool proof to a sufficiently talented and motivated fool
