    Cub cadet i1042 mower deck exchange

    Hey all. I just bought a near new i1042 zero turn which has the infamous timed blades it cuts smooth as glass but the reputation of breaking belts worries me. I almost bought one that the guy swapped the timed deck for a MTD 42" standard deck. Anyone here heard of this done?

    Anyone have a Yamaha Terrapro?

    Hello Terry. Just remember the PTO is rated a 10hp which simply means it will not cut down anything bigger than a 1/2. It will do great on saw briars and tall grass and young sapplings. Keep those rear wheels greased to avoid them seizing up and making turns difficult. I've totally restored my...

    MF TO35 with Z134 falls flat after engine heats up

    Does your exhaust manifold have a heat shield on it. The heat shield uses the same studs and mounts on the exhaust/intake manifold. It's a real b!tch to take off and put back on. So when a leak in the manifold occurs, it seems many throw the shield away. I bought one at a tractor salvage years...

    Spark Plug Access?

    The way I see it you will need a stepladder setup on the exhaust side. Open your hood and feel for the rubber boot. Pull it off and use a socket to loosen and install new plugs. That's the way I would do it. OR you could remove the side plate bolts and loosen the two front securing bolts...
