having "Cabin Fever" lately, It's been a little while since I've tinkered with any of my tractors, but have been excited lately since it's got a little warmer here in Wisconsin lately and brought my Demo Cub up to my house figuring that it would be a fun "after work" project; not to mention fun just running down my neighborhood streets..
While this Cub has a strong engine in it, there are a few areas that need tinkering yet. It has a little bit of a valve/lifter tick which I hope to fix with some adjusting, but the first thing is addressing the throwout bearing as I can't get it into gear without alot of grinding and when I push the clutch peddle all the way down, I can hear and feel the bearing noise.
Thinking that if I have to split it to do the bearing, I may as well put all new clutch parts in it to. I first checked out TM's website and see they don't offer a whole "kit" like I've seen a few sellers with on eBay. This will actually be my first time splitting a Cub, so I have a few questions:
I see different sellers with both 5.5" and 6.5" pressure plate...which size clutch do I need for my 1950 Demo Cub?
Is there a good source for a whole kit that folks have had good luck with?
Is there anything else that I should check out or look for as long as I have the Cub apart?
Any tips from experience is greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance for any education! Rob
