International Cub Cadet 86, 108, and 128 Tractors: Check to see that the gearshift lever is in the
neutral position.
All Models: Turn the ignition key clockwise to the
"ST ART" position and release it as soon as the
engine starts; however do not operate the motor
generator for more than 30 seconds at anyone
time. If the engine does not start within this time,
turn the key "OFF" and wait a few minutes, then
try again.
Be sure there is an adequate supply of gasoline
in the fuel tank.
5. After the engine starts, slowly release the
clutch-brake pedal and gradually push the choke
control button all the way in. Do not use the
choke to enrich the fuel mixture, except when
necessary to start the engine.

CAUTION! Never remove the fuel tank
cap or fill the fuel tank when the engine
is running, is hot, or indoors. Also, do
not smoke when working around inflammable fuel.
Move the throttle lever to the "SLOW" position
and allow the engine to idle for a short time before
stopping. Then turn the key to the "OFF"

This engine is designed to operate
on leaded
gasoline with a 93 minimum
octane rating or on
unleaded or low lead gasoline with a 91 minimum
octane rating (Research Method).
use of unleaded gasoline will lengthen spark
plug and valve life, maintain engine performance
longer, and reduce rust and corrosion of engine
wh ile stored.
The fuel tank filler cap has an air vent. Keep the
vent open at all times to assure proper flow of thefuel.
A
CAUTION! Never remove the fuel tank cap
or fill the fuel tank when the engine is
running, hot, or when near an open flame.
Do not smoke when working around inflammable
fuel, as the air around the tractor is mixed with a
highly explosive vapor. When pouring fuel, keep
the container or hose nozzle in contact with the
metal of the fuel tank to avoid the possibility of an
electric spark igniting the gas. Do not spill gasoline
on a hot engine.

FUEL SHUT-OFF VALVE
Be sure the shut-off valve under the fuel tank isopen.
Screw out the needle stem (shut-off valve)

ADJUSTMENTS
The carburetor is adjusted at the factory and under

operate properly, it is recommended a new air
cleaner be installed before performing carburetor
adjustments. If this adjustment has been disturbed
for any reason, proceed as follows:

A
CAUTION! Be sure the brake pedal is in
the locked position, transmission is in
neutral, and the mower is disenga~d
before adjusting the carburetor.
If the engine shows a sooty exhaust and is sluggish
under load, the high speed mixture is too rich. The
high speed adjustment screw must be turned
clockwise 1/4 turn at a time until the condition is
corrected.
Adjusting the Idle Adjustment Screw
Adjusting the High-SpeedAdjustment Screw
Turn the high speed adjustment screw counterclockwise approximately two turns from the closed
position and start the engine.
Be sure the choke is fully open when adjusting.
After the engine has reached normal operating
temperature, place the throttle lever in the fast
position and turn the high speed adjustment screw
clockwise to the leanest mixture that will allow
sat i sf actory acceleration and steady governor
operation. Then, turn counterclockwise to the
richest mixture that allows satisfactory operation.
The difference between the rich and lean points is
about 1/2 turn. Set the mixture to the rich end of
this range.
After the high speed adjustment screw is adjusted,
it may be necessary to readjust the idle adjustment
screw as each affects the other.
Close the idle adjustment screw to its seat by
turning it clockwise; then open it one turn. Start
the engine and operate it at fast idling speed
(without any load) until thoroughly warm.
While the engine is running at fast idle speed, it is
advisable to screw in the throttle stop screw a few
turns to keep the engine from stopping when the
throttle
lever is moved to the fully retarded
"SLOW" position. The engine will then be idling at
a fairly high speed and the throttle stop screw can
be backed out a little at a time until the desired
idle speed is obtained.
If the engine misses and backfires under load, the
high speed mixture is too lean. The high speed
adjustment screw must be turned counter-clockwise 1/4 turn at a time until the condition is
corrected.
PREPARING
THE TRACTOR
If the engine misses or rolls while backing out the
throttle stop screw, the idle adjustment screw may
be adjusted in or out until the engine operates
smoothly. Speed up the engine for a few seconds;
then recheck the idle adjustment. A slight adjustment in or out will give the smoothest idle.
FOR EACH DAY'S
WORK
Check the crankcase oil level and add new oil if necessary. See pages 34 and 35.
Clean the air cleaner element if necessary. See page 21.
Inspect the tires for general condition. See page 26
Retighten the cap screws after the seat is adjusted.
NOTE: The battery is located in a well under the
operator's seat for ease in servicing or replacement
when necessary.

Clean or replace the element when loss of power is
noticeable. Replace at least once a year.
Cleaning the Element -To
clean the element,
remove wing nut, air cleaner cover, then remove
element and tap it lightly on a flat surface to cause
loose dirt to falloff.
Handle paper element with
care to avoid dents or crushing local areas. Do not
use compressed air to remove dirt as this can
repture the element. Do not wash or use a solvent.
DRY TYPE AIR CLEANER
Replacing the Element -Replace
element with a
new one if dirt does not drop off easily, or if it is
bent or damaged. When replacing element be sure
the back plate is securely tightened to the carburetor. Replace the back plate if bent or cracked,
then be sure the element fits snugly around the
inside edge of the air cleaner base. The gasket
surfaces of the element must be flat against the
back plate and cover to seal effectively. Replace
cover and tighten wing nut finger tight.

HOUR METER
MOTOR GENERATOR
The International Cub Cadet 169 is equipped with
an hour meter, which is located on the left side of
the tractor parallel to the air cleaner. It indicates
the actual hours of engine operation, enabling the
operator to determine without guesswork, when
lubrication, change of oil, or periodic inspections
are necessary. It also provides a means of computing cost of specific jobs. The hour meter
operates whenever the engine is running.

PNEUMATIC
CARE OF TIRES
TIRES
MOUNTING TIRES ON THE RIM
Avoid stumps, stones, deep ruts, curbs, and other
hazards. Cuts in tires should be repaired immediately as neglect decreases the tire life.
After mounting a new or old tire on the rim,
inflate it to 20 pounds pressure to seat the tire
bead on the rim flange. Then deflate the tire to the
correct operating pressure.
Keep tires free from oil and grease as both destroyrubber.
After using the tractor for spraying use water to
remove any chemicals that may be on the tires.
REAR WHEEL WEIGHTS
INFLATION
Keep the pneumatic tires properly inflated. Overinflation will cause operator discomfort. Underinflation will cause short tire life.
Rear wheel weights increase traction and reduce
w:'eel slippage. The weights weight approximately
26 pounds each.,They are attached to each rear
wheel with two bolts, lock washers, and hex. nuts.
Always see that the tire valve caps are in place and
tightened securely to prevent loss of air and
protect the valve core and stem.
If additional weight is desired, a second set of
weights can be attached to each first weight by
using two longer bolts.

Push the pedal down until the clutch just begins to
release. This can be checked by shifting the
transmission into third gear and rocking the tractor
back and forth. If the drive shaft turns free and
does not turn the engine, the clutch is disengaged.
Locate the pedal at this point with a "c" clamp
and adjust the jam nuts on both brake rods until
the brakes just begin to clamp the brake discs and
create some drag. Make sure the brakes completely
release when the pedal is up against the stop, and
then tighten the jam nuts.
ADJUSTING THE CLUTCH
It is impoftant that a clearance of .O50-inch be
maintained between the clutch release lever and
the clutch release bearing. In order to maintain this
clearance, the pedal should have a free movement
of approximately 9/32-inch. This measurement is
taken at the point of contact of the pedal arm with
the front edge of the pedal return stop.
The clutch pedal adjustments are set at the factory
and should not require frequent attention unless
the linkage has been disturbed or when the pedal
movement becomes less than 9/32-inch. When it is
necessary to adjust the clutch, turn the adjusting
nut (No.3 on page 29) on the clutch release rod in
or out as required to get the proper measurements.
The tractor transmission should shift easily when
the tractor is stopped and the clutch-brake pedal is
depressed.
NOTE: To check the equal ization of the brakes,
drive the tractor in third gear on a concrete or
blacktop surface. When making a sudden stop,
both wheels should start to slide simultaneously. If
one wheel stops before the other, make the proper
adjustment to obtain uniform braking of both
wheels.
THE BRAKES
Adjust to 100 ft. Ibs. per wheel as shown in illustration. If necessary tools are not available, adjust
as follows:
The disc brakes should start to engage when the
pedal is pressed down to a position where the
engine clutch starts to release.

wheel by hand and adjust the jam nuts until the
wheel brakes firmly. Reconnect the right rod.
NOTE: To check the equalization of the brakes
start the engine and shift the gears to third speed.
After the wheels are turning apply the brakes. Both
wheels should stop at the same time. If one wheel
stops and the other wheel continues to revolve
when the brakes are applied, stop the engine,
adjust the jam nuts on the brake rod of the wheel
that does not stop, enough so that both wheels
stop simultaneously.

Your new rotary mower is designed to meet
today's exacting operating requirements. The ease
of operation
and ability to adjust to field
conditions lighten your work and shorten your
hours on the job.
Be sure to read the instructions for Adjusting and
Operating in this manual. Check each item referred
to and acquaint yourself with the adjustments
required to obtain efficient operation and maximum trouble-free performance. Remember, a
machine which is properly lubricated and adjusted
savestime, labor, and fuel.
After the operating season, thoroughly clean your
mower and inspect it. Preventive maintenance pays
dividends. Your dealer has original-equipment parts
which assure proper fit and best performance. He is
able to recondition your equipment to a like new
condition.
Your are urged to consult your International
Harvester dealer concerning unusual field conditions or special applications. Let the experience of
your dealer and the organization associated with
him serve you.

The 3 spindle, center mounted, 38-, 44-, and 50inch rotary mowers are designed for use on
International Cub Cadet Tractors having serial
number 400,001 and higher, and are quick detachable by the use of two spring loaded handles and
two bayonet type hangers.
The three cutting blades are designed to create a
suction to lift the grass and hold it for an even cut.
Raising and lowering of the mower is done by
means of the tractor lift handle or the power lift.
The mower extends beyond the tractor wheels to
permit cutting close to shrubbery, trees, fences,
buildings, drive and walkway edges, etc.
The lift linkage provides and maintains a true parallel lift for the mower. The cutting height ranges
from approximately 1 to 4-inches, depending on
tire and mower combinations.
The mower is driven by a V-belt from the engine
mounted power take-off clutch. The clutch is
engaged and disengaged by means of a hand lever
mounted on the cowl pedestal.
Gauge wheels permit setting the cutting height to
allow the mower to follow the contour of the
ground and minimize ground scalping. The mower
front roller also aids in minimizing scalping.
A heavy-duty V-belt connects the three spindles
and permits independent turning of the blades
when an obstruction is struck by a blade. A springloaded belt tightener maintains proper belt tension.
The lift linkage with mounting brackets can be
quickly detached by removing the quick-attachable
cotter pins and releasing the tractor quick hitch.
Keep the machine in good operating condition and
keep safety devices in place. Use guards or shields
as instructed.

or give rides.
Children should not be allowed to operate the
mower unless properly supervised, and are physically and mentally capable of safe operation.
Do not allow anyone in the area opposite the discharge chute while mowing. Although the area has
been supposedly cleared of foreign objects, small
objects may have been overlooked and may be
discharged by the mower.
Never place hands or feet under the mower, in the
discharge chute, or near any moving parts while the
tractor engine is running. Do not work on the
mower with the engine running.
Disengage power to any attachment when transporting or not in use.
It is recommended that the machine be stopped
and inspected for damage after striking a foreign
object and that any damage be repaired before
restarting and operating the machine.
Never leave the tractor engine running unattended
or permit it to be operated by persons not acquainted with its use and the rules for safe operation.

The main drive V -belt is adjusted for tension by
the V-belt tension bolt. Tighten the locknut to
increase belt tension and loosen the locknut to
decrease the belt tension.
When belt slippage occurs or spring coils touch,
readjust to 1/16-inch spread. Under no condition
should the tension adjustment distance be allowed
to fall under 3-1/8-inches.
When installing a new belt, the initial tension is
obtained by adjusting the bolt so the distance
measures approximately 3-1/2-inches from the center of the pulley (at the extension spring) to the
inner face of the front hanger cover.
NOTE: When installing a new belt always checkthe
condition of the pulleys and if they are not in
satisfactory condition, replace them with new
pulleys available at your I nternational Harvesterdeale
The main drive belt is properly tensioned when the
extension spring coils are spread approximately
1/16-inch.
To install or remove the belt, loosen the V-belt
tension bolt, raise the mower and disconnect the
power take-off clutch lever rod. NOTE: Refer to
the Front Power Take-off section of the Tractor
Operator's Manual. This will provide sufficient
clearance between the wear and thrust buttons on
the clutch to allow V-belt to pass through. Readjust V-belt tension as previously described.

The cutting blades must be kept sharp at all times.
The blades can be sharpened on the mower with a
few strokes of a file or they can be removed from
the mower and sharpened on a grinding wheel.
NOTE: Sharpen ends evenly so that the blades
remain balanced. However, if the cutting edge of a
blade is within 3/8-inch of the wind wing, it is
recommended that new blades be installed. New
blades are available at your I H dealer.
