Iâ€™m looking at a â€™49 Cub thatâ€™s in need of some work but I want to get an accurate idea as to how much work. Its transmission is fairly whiny and emits a â€œtickingâ€ in all gears. I was told that second gear was previously replaced. When driving down an incline, the noises cease. I am trying to arrange to get the transmission cover removed so I can have a look see but, in the meantime, I was hoping to get expert opinions or even educated wild guesses regarding the source of the tick.
Thanks for your help.

The clicking is most likely a chipped gear tooth. However, many here will also be quick to point out that another possible source is a loose bolt where the rim attaches to the wheel. Some gear noise is normal, but if it is extremely noisy, you may have worn gears and or bearings / bushings in the transmission. Sounds like you should plan on re-building the tranny.

I appreciated your prompt reply.
It's definitely not a loose bolt on a rim so, as you suggested, Iâ€™ll plan on transmission work. Iâ€™ve rebuilt engines before but never worked on a transmission. I guess Cub U. may be a good place to start my education.
Are transmission parts readily available or will I have to do lots of used parts scrounging at junk yards and eBay?
Thanks, again, for the help.
