NO

wide frame means wider where it attaches< blades ect>.
Narrow frames is narrower than wide frame and only the sub frame is different in all Cub Cadet attachments.thats the story and i`am sticking to it (unless Dennis says i`am wrong (

WAYNE S. - I don't think if that 124 has ATF that it would hurt a GD rearend. The OEM manual said even 30W engine oil was O-K. The original CUB Farmall rearend was lubed with 90W gear oil that our CC transmission/rearends was modified from.

I even know of a few Hydro CC's that have used ATF.

Now I suppose We'll get the Great Hy-Tran debate fired up again and I'll get blamed.

Won't comment on my engine removal techniques. I've pulled K-series Kohlers by hand a lot, don't have room in the shop for a hoist. I call SON and have HIM lift the engines anymore. Or I'll use a loader & tractor.

DON T. - "What other forum"?

I think I've asked this before, but don't remember the answer. What does the letter designation mean after the spec # on a Kohler engine?

Dennis-

If I ever drain this rearend I'll go back with gear oil. I think what I have now is 80w90. I do thin it with 30w some. I use that recipe for most gears including the power heads on my Gravelys.

I am finally sandblasting the frame of the 149. The weather has gotten a lot better so the hood/sweat factor isn't as bad. I still hate sandblasting though. I even thought about going to town and getting a Mexican to do it for me. We have a wonderful selection here.

WAYNE - I know what your saying about SAND BLASTING. I finally found a place locally that sells 100# bags of quartz blasting sand at a reasonable price and we blasted the snow blade with my pressure blaster. WHAT A MESS! If I had room I'd build a cabinent. I may have to modify my plans to make a collapsible cabinent that would hold a whole CC frame eventually. I did not design my shop to hold TWO FARMALLS, a truck, and three CC's, a LARGE dump cart, and all my power tools. It was only designed for one FARMALL, smaller truck, three Cubbies and NO carts. Work space is at a premium!

I'm not familiar with Gravely's, other than pictures, but I suppose whatever works in their drive train will keep a CC happy for many many decades.

The new Hy-Tran ULTRA is good stuff. I had a POS Chevy LUV pickup yrs ago that the manual 4-spd would not shift IF the miserable 4-cyl. gas engine would start under 20 deg. F with whatever oil was in it. A quick change to Hy-Tran of whatever version was available around 1978 fixed the problem. Ohhhh, Did I mention that the Chevy LUV was the BIGGEST POS vehicle I ever owned? When it ran, it ran O-K, but most times my '96 PSD F250 4X4 would get better MPG, start better, ride MUCH nicer, wasn't as loud, I can actually FIND parts for it. At least IZUZU painted My LUV the correct color, LEMON Yellow.

At least something GOOD came from that POS LUV, the AM/FM/Cass Pioneer radio My Wife gave me for my B-day to put in that LUV has worked flawlessly on my CC #72 since I installed it about 1981.

The landscaping work has hit a bit of a road block, more 90 deg. temps make work NOT an option for a couple more days!

149 refurb. The project is moving along and my parts list is growing substantially. I need to purchase a puller appropriate for the flywheel and can then replace the leaky seal.

The tiller is in pieces, there is something that pulled away from the outside housing. I am told everything is there to redo the tiller. The extra deck is missing the baffles and has no blades. So far the tractor runs well. I just need to level out the deck as it is only level when it is down all the way to the skid shoes.
