'72 IH Cub Restoration

Postby gerrrarrrd » Mon Jan 03, 2005 11:31 pm


Have begun to disassemble my CUB for painting & am running into the usual problems; like removing the PTO pulley. It is the type with 2 little bolts locking the pulley to the shaft. And would also like to find a site or actual photos to assist me with returning the tractor to as close to original as possible. Would appreciate ANY & ALL comments from your persoanl experiences. Thanks to all!

the pulley has a tapered center hub. As the bolts pull the pulley onto the hub it clamps down on the shaft. To remove it move the two bolts to the shallow threaded holes. turn them in a little at a time, first one then the other so the pressure is even. they will push the sheave (pulley) off the hub toward the tractor. as it slides off the hub will loosen on the shaft. May have to tap the hub a time or two to finally loosen it.

Good info!

Thank you... that worked perfectly, however I think the "hub" will need a little persuasion with some liquid loosener or a wheel puller.

Probably a little rust on it. spray some penetrating oil on it and let it set a day or two, then tap it with a small hammer. the tapping is as much to loosen the rust as it is to move the hub. If you will look, the hub has 2 splits. If there is enough room to get to them try diving something in to spread thsme jsut a little.

I did exactly that last night, sprayed it with JB80 and without too much trouble, I tapped it off.
Thanks again.

Nice. That is a year newer than mine.
You will find the folks on this board are the absolute best in the world.

A couple of recommendations:
Try a search for answers, lots of questions are saved in the archives.... someone has been there before. Don't let it stop you from asking again.
Take LOTS of pictures with a digital camera. I found this helpful with a rework of a snowmobile. It costs nothing but time and is well worth it. Helps you feel better later when you see how 'bad' it was to begin with.

Enjoy!
