Cub 22 Mower front rod

Postby Glen » Thu Aug 08, 2013 5:18 pm

Hi,
I thought I'd post some info about the Cub 22 mower for any of you that have rods that have been changed.
The Cub 22 mower front rod originally went in the left side of the square hole, not the right side. My friend said he had a Cub and mower that the rod was in the right side of the hole, and the inner end of the bar would not stay on the ground when he was mowing, it would rise up off the ground. I don't know if that happens to other people or not. It's the geometry of the mower is wrong when the rod is too short, or in the right side of the hole. If the rod length has been changed, shorter than original, or bent, you would have to lengthen it to make it original length again. Just ask on here if you need to know the length, it makes the post too long to put it all on here. Here's pics of the original way. :)

Hi,
Sonny, I measured the length of the rod. I hope you can follow the way I measured this, because I can't measure through the 2 holes with it assembled like it is, unless I had a tape with no end on it. Anyway, from the front, at the edge of the metal that comes down from the square hole, the narrow edge of the piece in my pic, that's just after the loop at the front, along the rod to the very rear of it looking down through the hole on the mower, is 32 3/8 inches. This has to be pretty precise so it will adjust right, and the bar is 90 degrees out from the tractor, actually the IH manual says to have just a slight lead at the outer end of the bar when it's down and mowing. :)

Hi,
My Dad put the bar there on the chain. It turns up and the other bolt in it goes in the part above it, bolted on the tractor, when the mower bar is up vertical. That holds up the mower so you can use the Fast Hitch for other things while the mower is on the tractor too. You can't see all of the part bolted on the tractor in my pic. The original chain broke, and my Dad got a heavier chain. IH originally had another clevise like at the top of the chain with the Fast Hitch parts package for the 22 mower. It went in the chain where the metal piece is, and the pin hooked in the part bolted on the tractor. I guess the clevise wouldn't go through the different chain, so he made the thing that is there, it does work, I've used it. :)

Hi,
Dan, Case IH still sells some parts for the Cub 22 mower. I buy some things there for it. Some of the other guys on here might know of other places in the midwest or east to buy parts, I'm in the west. Ask Boss Hog or Barnyard. :)

I'm rebuilding a sickle mower as a gift for a very important person, my dad. I know I'm going to need a grass board. Pulley, and decals.
