Two (probably repetitive) questions

Postby Mrblanche » Mon Nov 26, 2018 7:16 pm

1. Has anyone ever successfully installed a drain plug in the finals pans?

2. Is there a way to lubricate the pivot point of the clutch and brake pedals?

Hi,
I don't know about putting drain plugs in the pans, but removing them works, then you can wash out the inside. The final drives don't need an oil change often, unless you are using the Cub lots of hours.

The owner's manual says use an oil can, with motor oil, to lube linkages.
On the clutch pedal base, usually they will pull out of the housing 1/4" or so, that makes it easier to work some oil into the pivot. Work the pedal both ways some, and keep applying oil and work it into the hole.
Push the pedal base back into the housing when done oiling.
IH put a grease fitting for the clutch pedal base under the housing eventually. If your Cub has no grease fitting, oil it like I wrote above.

Below are pics from TM Tractor. The 1st pic is of the clutch pedal base. The shiny part needs lubing, I think about 2/3 of it's length rubs in the hole made in the housing. There is a clamp on the end on the left in the pic that connects to the rod going to the throwout bearing holder.

The 2nd pic shows inside the clutch housing from the rear, the housing is on it's side, the top is to the left in the pic, you can see, I think it is, the metal for the clutch pedal base is cast so the hole is deep into the housing. :)

If you put drains in the finals, good chance they could hit something and get ripped out.

That would be my concern. How close to the pan does the bull gear run?

I have never measured it, but would estimate 3/8 of an inch. I do know ir does not take much of a dent for it to rub.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
