Tighten it till it breaks, then back off 1/4 of a turn.

Do it right, do it once...Torque wrench ...
Actually - do it twice. It needs to be re-torqued. (Yeah - I am being picky.)
No when I re-torqued they where all way off. When do it again tonight for the 3rd time just to make sure.
A pretty common occurrence. If I were a bet'in man, I would guess that the third time will yield little movement.
That's what I am hoping for...
So, I just read all 9 pages of this. I haven't been around here much this summer. Do I understand that you moved up from that green tractor to a Cub? Which one? Do you have another thread about it?
I still have my jd its a hydrostat and its not going to pull a plow. The cub is being used as the heavy lifter if you will.
What model? I know its a 12hp. and will surely be a fine heavy lifter.
Its a 128
Nice. The WF Cubs are the best.
I had a special fondness for the narrow frames.
My first Cub was a 125. After my brother in law bought a 108 I decided that I wanted a WF. To each his own.
The wide frames were workhorses, but who can say "no" to this little cutie?
Mine was only slightly newer:
LOL That's not even fair. Awesome!
You get anything to hitch to that mule yet?
No but looking hard. I hate to buy new. I have a aerator and a 17cu foot trailer. Going to get a 30 cu ft in Sept. Looking for plow disc and Cultivator.
You will also need the IH Cub Cadet three point hitch and Brinly sleeve hitch adapter. For those implements.
A spring assist might also be nice for your manual lift tractor.
I've been looking for a small cultivator to pull behind the Honda to put in a few food plots and possibly expand the garden some more. The new ones are damned expensive and the used ones are hard to come by.
I have a plow, disc, cultivator, and rear blade for my Cubs. I also recently acquired a landscape rake that I intend to modify for my Cubs.
Is that a cup holder I see? Nice set up to. That's what I am going for
It is a magnetic cupholder that I found on a discount rack at Sears. It sounds like a good idea, but it failed miserably.
lol It was wishful thinking on my part as well. My Jd there no problem with a drink. The cub is a whole new skill set.
I already have that.
You did good! Chains and it looks like it has wheel weights too. Does it have headlights? How come I don't see a lift lever on the right? How do you raise/lower the deck and rear hitch?
