Hello everyone first let me say I love the Cub 2182s and ever since my first one I've improved on the many weak points of these tractors and as a result ended up with a pretty reliable tractor of which I can use more than repair. Before I bore anyone with my long winded rhetoric let me say I like to write and are willing to help anyone with whatever knowledge I have on the cubs. I have a pretty good equipped home work shop allowing me to do just about anything in need to do. I have restored, refabricated, rewired, re-equipped, modified these tractors and just about every machine, car boat, truck and tractor I have ever owned since I took my first Aurora race track cars apart to see how they worked when I was about 7 years old. I've owned (5) 2182s and still have (2).. One is a dedicated lawn tractor and the other a dedicated front loader with 3 point, D600 Kubota and lots of mods to make this the greatest little front loader I could ask for for my 1-1/2 acre home and property..After modifying my one 90 Hr 2182 Cub to handle the front loader, 13 years later and around 1400 hrs pushing it too hard I broke a tooth off the ring gear and of course damaged the pinion on it. Even though I am capable of rebuilding it as there are lots of good used parts of which carry the same part numbers I find the same were used by Cub in many other tractors it leads be to believe If I could just swap out this adapter housing and differential housing for another good donor which spent its entire happy life just cutting grass instead of what mine has been through and believe me I never knew how strong these were as I have put it through everything without a issue till yesterday..Sooo what other units out there SGTs or not have a direct bolt on combination? I believe all the SGT Cyclops line should work but I'm lacking in knowledge here and need help on this area..
