Kraig,

Great rooster tails! You've got that thrower really dialed in.

Ron and Peter,

Balance gears do help reduce vibration in the vertical direction (along the cylinder axis). The reason they've gotten a bad rap for grenading through the block is that most rebuilders don't replace the bearings or the stub shafts during a rebuild. These are high-wear items as they are quite heavily loaded under normal operation. Replacing these components along with new retaining rings will yield high reliability and keep vibration down to tolerable levels.


Quietlines are on my mind.

Peter S.
The balance gears help reduce the amount and magnitude of vibration in your engine for smoother operation. I know the guys that modify their CC's to be pullers take them out because they run at much higher RPM's than normal operations so there is likely a risk of the gears flying apart. Not sure if these gears have caused many problems under normal operations or not but I bet there are folks on the forum who would be able to provide added info. I see Kirk Engines, a forum sponsor, has some counterbalance weights available that you can install on your crankshaft in lieu of the balance gears.

Peter - Keeping the balance gears SAFE in a box or bag under your workbench keeps them from spitting off the circlip that holds them to their shaft inside the crankcase, and then hitting the throw on the crankshaft which sends them through the sidewall of Your engine block making a nice picture window.
JERRY, Wild Bill - The 44" & 50" decks are deep drawn, read "expensive tooling" the older decks would be easy with todays lazers & CNC press brakes. Make the steel thicker if You can!

Jerry M:
1) The 'short' 3 hole straps are for use with the Y adapter used on the 'Original' Cub Cadet tractors.

2) Like Kraig said, price will somewhat determine interest.

Last time I checked, MTD wanted in the neighborhood of $500 for a 44A bare shell!!

Now, if you could reproduce deck skins for any of the decks from the 38" timed deck used on the Originals, 38" and 42" cast iron end 'pin on' decks, to the 38", 42", and 48" 'QA' decks, and keep the final price reasonable... I'm sure people would be -very interested-..(You might have to look into patent and copy right laws)...but if the cost vs. a somewhat decent used deck, would be overly high, interest wouldn't turn into a purchase.

The 44A, 50A, 44C, and 50C deck skins can still be bought new from MTD (last I knew), plus there are still decent used versions available.

Got a schematic a few weeks back showing sleeve hitch parts for a 582. On E-bay there are several IH Sleeve hitches for Wideframes (brackets that go on the tractor). Would any wideframe Sleeve Hitch parts work with my 582? Also, does anyone have any experience with the Aftermarket Electric lift sleeve hitch's, seems like a better way to go for my non-hydro cub.

Jerry M., I've seen several styles of the lift straps, one has a slot on one end with 5 holes another has 3 holes on one end and 6 holes on the other another has the slot on one end with 3 holes on the other. I believe the early version had the slot and 3 holes and the later version had the slot and 5 holes. The version with holes on both ends is for use with grader blades or other implements that require some downforce. I do not know of anyone making reproduction mower deck shells. How much call there would be is likely proportional to the price. I'm sure there will be other parts that would be welcomed on the market as the NOS and used parts are used up. I know that Mike M. was making the adapter part for the IH 3 point hitch lift bar to lift arm. I believe that Dan H. was also making these. There are several people making the sleeve hitch adapters.

Have a couple questions for everyone...

1) Do the sleeve hitch lift straps come in two different lengths? I've seen pictures of some with 3 round holes in the bottom and some with 4 round holes.

2) Does anyone already reproduce deck shells for the narrow frame Cub Cadets? I work for a company that has 3 lasers and several CNC press brakes. I can pretty easily reproduce the deck shells and a lot of the original ones I find are rusted out with good castings and good spindles. If nobody is already making these, how much interest would there be in them? What widths would everyone be interested in?

3) What other parts would there be a need for? I'm considering things like the adapter to mount a sleeve hitch on the 106, 107, 126, 127, etc. narrow frames. I also could do the piece that attaches the sleeve hitch linkage bar to the lift lever.

I'm looking forward to everyone's input.

Thanks,
Jerry Muncie

Denny, Thanks, my daughter took the photos for me. They say we're supposed to get some more snow later this week too but I have not heard any amounts. There was about 11" or 12" of snow in the driveway but all the hard pack had melted off of the driveway so I had to keep the QA42 3-4" up to prevent it from throwing the gravel.

I do not know if a 149 has the large pulley on the front of the motor. My Original developed a loud knock that definitely resembled a conrod or piston. It turned out that the pulley was rocking on the crank making this noise. It had a cracked hub. If there is a pully on the 149 try rocking the pulley to see if it is loose. Just a thought but that was the problem I had.

Yes there were definite scratches on the piston, but the cylinder walls are good. You mention conrod bearing shells? Are there suppose to be brass bearings or bushings in there? Cause there were none.

"The piston had some wear on opposing sides(kind of like my zr900 when the piston stuck!). The rod was very slightly loose on the crank end."

It could be either piston slap or a wore out conrod bearing shells on the crank. Are there scraches on the piston? If not, I'd figure its just wore out bearing shells.

In the mean time I pulled the motor and got it up on the stand.
I just had to take it a part and see what makes that knock. I could hear it during idle slightly, but could definitely hear it with a screwdriver to the motor and my ear!

The piston had some wear on opposing sides(kind of like my zr900 when the piston stuck!). The rod was very slightly loose on the crank end.

I'm still wondering what makes that knock?

Anyone?

Made up a new steering wheel insert for the 1250. The original decal had lost it's adhesive qualities and was looking a bit worn. This insert was made from .028 thick stainless steel sheet, cut to shape using the original decal as a pattern. 120 grit emery cloth was used to give the surface a "brushed" finish. The IH logo was cut from the original decal and glued to the new insert. A single sheet metal screw is all that's required to hold it firmly in place. I like the custom look.

I am not sure what you mean by auxillary pressure, but the Primary Pressure is created by the Charge Pump.
First things I would suggest that you look at, would be the Oil Level, and Hydro Filter (#923-3014). If it has been done in a while, perhaps a fluid and filter change are in store.

I was just making sure it worked. I was wondering. Terry Busch said that there are some pics of his loader and more information on here. Where do I find either the pics or the information? I am ordering the plans this weekend. Hopefully turns out to be what I wanted.

Also, since I have the NF front end. Would it be "beefy" enough if I took my spindles and copy the arc, give me 2-3 inches on each end, and then cut 2 pieces of 1/2" steel and weld them in the arc to help strengthen the spindles?

I need to figure out how to mount the pump now. I think I am going to copy Dave Kamp's mounting bracket though and mount the pump now. I just need to figure out what size of pulley to put on the crank shaft and what size of pulley to put on the pump to get the desired results.

Well, now that we know that you have a Ported Pump, part of the battle is over. According to the Parts Manual, as best as I can see, that a Auxillary Hydraulic Circuit was never offered on the 149. That circuit was offered starting with the Q/L's. So, the attached pic's is the setup from the 82 series, but will give you the general idea. You will need a Dual Spool Valve and will have to fabricate the lever and linkages to operate the Valve. You will also have to do the piping of the lines. So, here ya go:

Hi all! This is my first post after a few years lurking, so go easy on me.(great site by the way)

I'm hoping someone on here can remember this.

I have seen separate or auxiliary hydraulic fittings put out front on a 149 to run "other accessories"

I am very interested in seeing a detailed setup or drawing of how this is done. And where the auxiliary control lever is mounted.

Has anyone on here done this? And documented it? I would love to see how its done. Can you run this off the existing 149 hydro unit?

I wanted to kick it up a notch on my beloved 149. It has hydo lift now.

If you would like to email me its kimter1@msn.com

I would be greatful for any info on this subject

Hell I'll even post pictures of my so to be 321a rebuild!

Thanks Pete

Peter,
Actually if memory serves me right none of the 128's had hydraulic lift from the factory.
But I know my 128 came with a fan and it looks unlolested so I just taking a guess.

I don't think there was a fan on the 128 as there ? and they had screw marks around them like they were used for toggle switchs but my guess is as good as yours.

Daniel K,
I'll betcha if you take the tunnel cover off, you'll find that the plastic fan on the drive shaft is gone and their thinking was to help cool things off through your cribbage board.

I don't really know what the holes on the tunnel are for but i imagine that there was one super-complicated implement on the back that cuased them to put those holes there for some electrical thing,you are right about the down force it will begin to lift the front tires when implement is down,and in regards to its origin i believe it was factory built becouse it is very well made and they used safetys that average everday people wouldn't put on and when i got it last friday the guy said he got it from a fleet of 6 of them all with air-ators. I'm tryin to call him to see where the rest went i think upstate somewhere.
Thanks

Daniel, that's a neat aerator setup! There sure is some thick steel in that, no lack of downforce with that one I would think. Is that a home made unit or a manufactured one? Any idea what all the holes in the tunnel cover are for?

Late last year I think it was Richard C did a really good series on this, and I think it is in the FAQ's. They can be fixed, but it is not easy... Do a search in the vault, or go to http://cubfaq.com/questions.html
And of course, new ones are available from our sponsors above.....

I have been getting my 129 ready for grass cutting and noticed a small amount of tranny fluid coming out around one of the relief valves. Is there a kit for this repair or can it be repaired. Thanks

Denny, Herbert, I'm surprised that Steve B. didn't comment on the 12hp 100 as his 100 has a 12hp in it.

Steve, did you put front hydraulic outlets on your 129 (or do you refer to it as a 149?)?

HERBERT G. - Nobody responded to Your question about the "120" Sounds like a real nice tractor.
I'm going to convert the 70 Dad bought brand new in 1964 into a 100 this summer. My 72 is becoming a 142 (14 HP 72) and the old K241 will get rebuilt and dropped into the 70. As those older Cubbies gain HP they become much more usable I feel. The old 7 & 8 HP engines struggled to do most jobs and were rather short-lived because of that. My K241 has about 1350 hrs on the last ring & valve job I did in 1985.... still doesn't burn much oil but I know it's tired. Piston is still stock diameter so I know it's got a LOT of hours on it. Back when the old 70 was mowing two barnyards every week that 70 got a rebuilt engine or a complete replacement engine every three years!
I'd paint Her up and run her!
STEVE - Nice truck! My new car had variable cam timing on both cams and combine that with the turbo It has as much HP as a 5.0L Mustang GT and gets 50% more MPG out of half the displacement. I can't wait till International offers the "Camless Engine" in a smaller truck in the next few years.... A 4-5 liter V-6 diesel in a pickup ought to be a real fun and economical vehicle!

First, do you have Hydraulic Lift on your 149 at present, or the "armstrong lever"..??

Move Post (Moderator/Admin Only)View Post/Check IPDelete PostEdit PostBy Steve Blunier (Sblunier) on Tuesday, March 07, 2006 - 09:46 pm:

Charles,

In 3000 miles of mixed driving the worst tank full has been 15.98 mpg, best 18.25 mpg (400 mile interstate trip at 71 mph). Overall average is probably around 16.5 mpg. In 75,000 miles the 4.6L in the '97 averaged 15.8 mpg with a record high of right at 18 mpg. (All odometer/pumped gallons calculations...no "in dash computer" stuff).

Like I said before, the width and mass of the bigger truck makes a HUGE difference with a trailer and 2 or more Cubs. My Ranger was squirrely as all get out with 2 tractors on the trailer......I have never experienced anything but complet control with the full size though. I'm also a firm believer in electric brakes on any trailer capable of hauling 2 or more Cubs.....even behind a full size. The difference in control and safety (if you haven't experienced it first hand already) is very noticeable.

Jerry M.

The type/style of sleeve hitch you have (the one Charlie posted a picture of) was designed for use on the 'Original'.

The 'newer' style lower bracket is a 'U' shape, and can be used with a stablizer plate, and adjustable jamb nuts.
