I have a parts manual on order and hope to see a good diagram there, but ants in my pants on this.
I've removed the transmission input shaft retainer, seal and front bearing from a junker Cub. Was simply breaking it down for parts, thus didn't pay absolute attention to the way I removed parts. I did NOT remove the bearing from the shaft.
Working on another Cub now with PTO problems (input shaft has shifted forward about 1 / 4 inch) and now I need to know how this should be put together, thus questions:
1. The exposed part of bearing faces outward from the transmission and the retaining ring goes in the groove here on the open-faced side of the bearing?
2. The 1 / 4 " protruding side of the seal retainer faces into the transmission and butts against the bearing?
3. The seal is pressed into the retainer and there is nothing to keep it from sliding out onto the non-splined portion of the shaft towards the clutch?
Some things just don't seem to make sense here. All help appreciated.
