You know your right a ruler would work, you wouldn't happen to have one that will reach 36 miles and still give a accutrate reading on the end I am holding.
As far as useing a serch engine on the internet I wouldn't have the first clue how to do it.

I have learned to look in the FAQ's but did not see anything there as to the bolt pattern size.

But thanks for the link to the wheel information it is most helpfull as is this site.


Charlie,
Thanks for the bolt pattern size, I will not be ordering the ones from Northern Tool, wrong size, looks like it will take a trip to the local salvage yard and search through the rim piles to find rims that will fit, hopefully, or this high ride project will be grounded befor it gets off the ground.

Noah,
Let me find out what you find. I have a 109 that has a similiart problem. It charges fine until I speed it up to full throttle. It will also show a bad discharge. I can idle it back down and it will show it is charging again until you get above 3/4 throttle, then back to discharge. It did the same thing in the fall of 2003. I charged the v/r and it seemed to cure the problem for about a year and a half and then it popped back up again this spring. I can sometimes tap on the v/r and it will charge for a few seconds and then go back to discharge. I am thinking about taking everything off and checking all grounds to see if that may be the problem. If not, I may put a known v/r on it and see what it does then. I would think that a voltage regulator should last more than 25 hours. Since this is my designated tiller tractor and sometimes 2nd plow day unit, it does not get many hours, especially with no weeds growing due to lack of rain.

I have a 128 with a rebuilt S/G, new regulator, and battery. Everything is normal for about 20-30 mins. after startup. Output is 14.5V. Then it quits charging. If I turn it off and restart, it will act right again for a while, only not quite as long, then quit charging. Repeat the the stop and start game, and it is charging again. Searched the archives, but couldn't find a similar problem. Found some not charging stuff, but it didn't seem to apply to my problem. Any ideas on how to sort this out? Thankz

Roland -

A quick peek at http://www.mcmeen.net/CubCadet/K161%20Parts%20List%20IHC-1014240-R1.pdf shows that both the S/G and it's pulley (and other associated parts) have part numbers consistent with other Kohler parts.

Makes sense from a manufacturing perspective. Why should Delco make/stock a bunch of different pulleys when they can let the user decide what pulley would be correct for the application.

Move Post (Moderator/Admin Only)View Post/Check IPDelete PostEdit PostBy David Kirk - For me it's Hydro-Therapy (Dkirk) on Monday, July 11, 2005 - 12:39 pm:

Roland B.,

Not sure about the part number thing but the reason for different pulleys on the S/G has to do with reduction ratio changes to match the starter torque requirement to that of a particular engine. Engine displacement and whether or not ACR (automatic compression release) is used dictate the reduction ratio, and therefore drive pulley diameter. The early, non-ACR engines used small diameter pulleys. Later engines used a larger diameter as cranking torque was reduced by application of ACR. For the same S/G used on several different displacement engines, a smaller pulley will generally be necessary for the larger engine due to the higher cranking torque imposed.

As far as s/g pulley size, didn't the original, 70, and 100 use a smaller pulley for more torque because of the engine not having the compression release?

Roland, I believe the SG was initially sourced through Kohler perhaps that is why the pulley has a Kohler PN. Sometime during the 1x6/7 series IH started sourcing the S/G directly from Delco, this is also when the color of the S/G changed from yellow to black. I know the Original and perhaps the other 7hp Cub Cadets use a different S/G.

Guys:

I am working on my 105 during the last couple of days. One of the problems is, that the S/G pulley is bad. I looked in the Parts Manual, and to my surprise, it has a Kohler Part Number (KH-235583). I surely would have thought the pulley would have come from IH or Delco-Remy. A little further research, comes up with different pulleys for different models. I haven't thought about this much, but I initially would have thought those pulleys would be all the same.

Can anyone expand on why the replacement pulley is a Kohler Part and the reason for the difference in the pulleys.

My (was my Dad's)127 had the same problem after a engine rebuild in 1981. Backfired on shut down if one did not let it idle for a minute or so. Adjusting the screws never fixed it.

Shanen -

You sure there's a screw at C? I'd try cleaning things up first so I'd know for sure what I was looking at.

Greetings All,

My dad has handed down to me his 127 that I grew up using. Before doing so, an engine overhaul was done and a replacement carburetor added. The individual who did the job is not available for questions. I've been using the machine for about 2 years now and I've developed some odd symptoms in the way it runs. I get backfires when shutting down, some difficulty starting, and most recently a little sputtering when changing direction (fowards to reverse). I imagine the carburetor is out of adjustment and the problem I have is that the screws on this carb don't match the layout shown in the manual. I'm including a picture of the screw configuration and hoping that someone may have seen this type before and be able to tell me which screw is which - my goal being to set to defaults and go from there in adjusting. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Please note that when looking at the pic, the coil wire had been disconnected so it wouldn't be in the way. The view is looking down at the top of the carb.

Chad -

Take a look at the main page (www.ihcubcadet.com) and take a look at the model chart. There wasn't necessarily any rhyme or reason, but you'll find that the 1x2/1x3 was a series of tractors and the 1x4/1x5 was the following series, then came the 1x6/1x7. And also note that the 70, 71, 72 and 73 don't fit the numbering mold. Nor did the 86. Can you see why there's no simple Excel formula to plug things into?

I have looked in the archives and I'm sure it has been covered but....I can't find it specifically. Maybe a good one for the FAQ section.

I know the first numbers in the older cubs are the engine HP, and I know that the last number if odd is hydro/even is gear drive. What is the difference in the last number if both are odd. Example-123 and a 127

Rick M. -

Of course, the way most of us plow, it's probably +/-14" cut

I had a tractor that I couldn't get to start for anything, so I sprayed electrode cleaner on all of my main connections and it fired right up. That probly isn't the whole problem, but it may help your situation.


I am STILL lookin for a 9c ha ha

Bryan - if it were 3.25" then they're probably gaining the extra inch out of the plow bouncing side to side as it follows the furrow

So I got my 12-6 Carlisles on my '72 today. Its been sitting for a couple months so I didn't expect it to start easy. However I did expect it to turn over when I hit the key, it doesn't...
I jumped to the starter and the motor turns over but has no spark even with the key on. Once while I was messing with it I got the solenoid to clunk but thats about it. I disconnected the cutout at the clutch pedal but that doesn't seem to be the problem. I'm thinking keyswitch at this point. Anybody got some troubleshooting steps? It was running just fine in early May when I put the k161 in it.

Does any one know who made the snow cabs for the 1250-1650 models? I am looking for any info on them. Thanks Craig

Maybe they used "New" math when plows were being designed......

Well, as fuzzy as that pic is, Lord knows what I read on it (3 1/somethinerother), but I knew what the answer was cuz it was pretty obvious.

It DOES say 3.5" and 3.5" x 4 is DEFINITELY 14"

3.25*4=13

Move Post (Moderator/Admin Only)View Post/Check IPDelete PostEdit PostBy Bryan D. McMeen (Bmcmeen) on Saturday, July 09, 2005 - 09:04 am:

Um, yeah. If 3.25" is a quarter of the cut (as stated on the picture), then 3.25" x 4 = 14" must be the FULL width of the cut.
