Final Drive Bearing Cover Studs

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.

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
