Final Drive Bearing Cover Studs

Postby PVF1799 » Fri Aug 23, 2013 11:25 am

For my serial number Cub "Note A" from TC-37-A notes that the upper bearing cover used studs and 3/8' nuts. During disassembly the studs came out with the nuts - because the top ones in particular had been rounded off by chains hitting there over the years. Notes B and C indicate for higher serial number Cubs a 3/8 x 3/4 bolt were used instead of the studs and nuts.

Since, my studs are so badly worn and rusted I've concluded that I can use the 3/8 x 3/4 cap bolts. I've confirmed they don't hit the bull gear when fully tightened. Do any of you see any issue with this approach?

As many as I have worked on I never saw the studs. Always the bolts.

I have one with studs on one side and bolts on the other, so far as I know the finals are original.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Why can't we ever find the correct police when they are needed?

Oh, he'd get me on a few things. Trying to keep them to a minimum. He looks mean, but with a sharp eye. :D
