Scrivet noticed the left final of that cub was loose and leaning out some at the bottom a few months ago and put some bolts in it where he could, and has been giving it light duty until I had some room in the shed and some time. Since I was through playing with his throwout bearing and spending Rabbit Holler Flash's money on that part I decided to pull the final this afternoon while it was raining too hard to do anything outside.
Found a couple things I expected, and a couple I did not.
One hole had a bolt broken off in it, which I knew about and it came out easily. One hole had all the threads stripped out, and the one next to it had aprt of them stripped out. They are both circled and will get Helicoils. The surprise came when I got a look at the bottom. The dowel pin hole is broken out completely and part of the bottom front hole is broken, but it does hold good with what is left. I think he will be ok using it as long as he does not get too violent with it.

Here's the pictures from the first post the way I found it back in January.
I guess that offset cultivision roller bearing throw out bearing was putting excessive strain on the left side of the tractor just another reason to not try to reinvent the (throwout bearing) wheel.
I would be looking a trans case if it were mine, I will give you an old type one and can bring it to the tug, the one with the larger top rear bearing just let me know

If your going to be replacing the trans case with a good one, might as well consider looking for a pristine set of gears off a cub cadet.
