I think I am going to go to CUBARAMA. I have been there a couple of times and enjoyed myself. Maybe I can bring some of my pieces and someone can look at them and see if they can see something I am not seeing. The PTO won't stay in gear.

Put me on the list of Cubs in MO! I'm in the northland of KC.
Just attended the Mclouth KS Threshing Bee last weekend and out of zillions of Farmall M's (that ruled the tractor pull- far outnumbering the Johnny Poppers), there was only one cub. A white one! I hope to have my '48 painted up and ready to go next year!

Hello, I am a new member to this site. I think I have a 1960 International Cub Lo-boy, serial number 13862 J. I live in the Kirkwood, MO area. My dad bought this tractor used from Chaminade High School back in mid to late 70s. It came with a Woods belly mower and a front blade, and a rear draw bar. My brother used the tractor for the past 6 years so I'm a little rusty on the PTO operation. (I have not used the tractor myself since the late 90s.

I have question about the PTO.....There seems to be some confusion around how to engage the PTO. There is a little two way lever near the shift lever but I always thought this was a hi-low selection for the transmisson. Any help would be appreciated.

FYI...this tractor still runs as smooth as can be. I am in the process of repainting the deck.

You are correct. When you want to disengage let the pto come to a complete stop then disengage.

Ops i just reread my answer. it is not hi lo it engages pto

By the way welcome to the forum.

Also it would have been better if you started a new thread so it would get more exposure.

Dont forget all the manuals are at the top of the page under NEW manuals.

Good luck and enjoy the cub.
1975 cub (LouAnn) serial # 245946, 1941 John Deere Model H

Do you know what the "J" stands for in the serial number

The "J" means it left the factory with a Rockford clutch. However somebody may have replaced it with an Auburn clutch sometime in its life.

Thanks for the Serial number information.

I could of swore when we were plowing snow with our cub years ago we would switch that PTO lever to the other position and tractor ground speed would pickup considerably in all three forward gears. Does that sound correct? I always thought that was intentional for like a road transport speed or something like that.
Maybe what was happening was with out the mower deck on the tractor and therefore not being engaged there was no load on the engine thus the gear ratio changed somehow.

Shifting the pto lever has nothing to do with changing the gear ratio. It only engages the rear shaft.

Your description almost sounds to me like a Howard Despeeder and not the PTO. The PTO lever which most Cubs have is on the right side of the transmission/rear end housing behind the gear shift and just in front of the battery box. A Howard Despeeder, which is rare, would if I remember correctly usually be a lever on an extra part between the transmission/rear end and the left final drive. That would definitely change your travel speed.

Scrivet's answer is more logical. Here is what a despeeder would look like.

No, I don't have one of those. Maybe I will try a general post and get some other ideas.

Start another post. Also post some photos of the tractor and the lever in question.

My only other thought is that perhaps the tractor is a numbered Cub Low-Boy with a creeper gear.

The guys posts describing the pto's function on a standard Cub is correct - has no effect on the tractor's ground speed
I have an excuse. CRS.

I finally got around to working back on my project of refinishing my Woods belly mower for my Cub lo-boy. This tractor has not cut grass in probably 10 years and after installing the belly mower all works great.

At some point I am going to post a video link to my youtube sight to show you what I was referring to the ground speed.
