1966 cub lo-boy, brake and clutch pedels

Mon May 13, 2013 10:50 am

i just bought a 1966 cub lo-boy... first problem i am having.. for some reason the left side brake and cluch pedel seem to be frozen together, they both move no matter what pedel i push on, right side moves on it"s own.. i am guessing the left side and cluch should move on they"r own also. i can"t figure out how thats suppose to happen because it looks like they share the same shaft that goes through the tranny housing... anyone know how to adjust these. i found a manual online but it doesn"t show much.. thanks in advance

Lots of penetrant and elbow grease.

The brake shaft goes through the clutch assembly. A little heat might help. Worse case senario, you may need to split the tractor to get lubricant where you need it :big smirk:

Lubricate all the connections/moving parts with a GOOD penetrating oil. Try to move the pieces every time. Keep squirting the penetrating oil into all openings/connections. Patience is key and it will pay off.

Newer Cubs have a grease fitting on the bottom of the casting. Often overlooked!

Make sure the pedals are not locked together. Please DO NOT ask. Grump

well sucess!!! clutch now moves on it's own,, thanks to the help on here and some PB Blaster and a BFH and and a couple well placed hits lol... wasn't frozen together too bad but enough that kicking it didn't bust it loose.. and yea i found the grease zerks and those got a few shots in em.. now to tackle the carb, i know it has some plugged jets, it only runs with the choke full on, but that should be easy to fix..
