    If I remember right, it has the same engine as the regular Cub. I think it has an L head and if it was one of the newer models (70's) then it should turn about 18 PTO HP. The LowBoy was a big hit with municipalities and schools because it handled a mower effectively and had a low center of gravity.

    IH 185 Low Boy

    Default Re: IH 185 CUB LO BOY

    Anybody have any valve stem keepers they can sell me? The guy working on my tractor (185 low boy) lost 2 of them and now I'm dead in the water. Also when you read the manual they say to adjust the valves when cylander 1 and 4 come up to TDC---Do they mean fireing order of the cylanders ? Because when you turn the engine from front to back 1 and 4 come up then 2 and 3 come up?

    Never mind on the keepers . I found it laying on top of the oil pick up after I dropped the oil pan. Plus the only way to adjust the valves is to go by firing order not whats is marked on each piston head.

    Top price here is around $900 for one in showroom condition, less if not! I have 3 of them and most I paid was $950 for 1, PLUS they came with mowers and blades!---so 1600 is double too high for 1! thanks; sonny580
