Recently acquired ags 2130 cub..they were made from 94-99 (?) . It has 12.5 kohler,shaft drive into a clutch system that in turn runs a 6 speed, a stock 38" deck . I had never seen one so thought I might share some thoughts..I now have the engine running fine after carb clean,new plug ,old gas removed from tank.The issue now is it barely creeps in gear so the clutches are slipping.I've spent hours chasing info..The rear deck can split from foot pads,there are 6 1/4 bolts connecting fenders to front.Of course they are badly rusted 2 broke 2 unscrewed and 2 came off with air chisel..No room for grinders,too close to gas tank and line for torch...I didn't remove the deck and I don't have a hoist so doubled up my misery..It would have been easier to remove wheels then I could have used impact on 4..hindsight.The pics show a hole in the back of clutch area,I have removed a tricornered cover plate .The bearing came out easily with a pick,then a 025 shim washer , then a 1/4 spacer , then another bearing. Everything I've been able to find is adding more shim washers to get the correct pressure on clutch plates. If anyone has some experience with this I would sure appreciate some input !!Tomorrow I'm spending some time with a very qualified wrench that's been working on cubs a long time....Wish me luck ,I'll post results..
