Cub Cadet Garden Tractor Restoration

A 21st-century odyssey: Restoring an IH Cub Cadet garden tractor

On this Model 100 frame, the forward-most set of holes were worn thin, and the metal was cracked. Flat washers were welded over the cracked metal and ground to the contour of the frame rails. If repairs such as this are made, be sure to add the metal only to the side where increased thickness will not interfere with assembly. This repair won’t please purists, but it’s simple, effective and barely noticeable.
