1. Take a lot of pictures to remember what part goes back where, and in what order.

2. Be careful and be patient. Be safe.

3. Have a dedicated tupperware tub with a lid for bolts and other small parts that can get lost on the floor.

4. Replace any worn bolts, washers, nuts, seals, and other parts during the service. Don't be cheap.

5. Have available all of the necessary manuals and read them.

6. Have a helper if available.

To expand a little on Todd's #4, replace all lock washers whether they look worn or not.

How To Safely Disassemble A Culti-Vision Tractor is a good visual on how to prepare your tractor. The shown model is an SA but same procedures apply to your Cub. Make the wedges. A splitting stand is really useful and is worth taking the time to make one as it will not be a one time use. Trust us on this .. you may not use it again on this Cub for a dozen years or so .. but remember .. these things are addictive and they tend to multiply unexpectedly. :lol:

Here are some ideas on splitting stands:



These are good suggestions and need to be repeated. You need to apply them :idea: :!: :D

Be sure to install the bearing retainer frontwards. You may find it backwards when you take it apart. If backwards it will let the shaft move forward, which keeps the PTO from fully engaging.

Actually, I would describe the retainer as being installed "backwards". The emboss should be located into the hole of tranny, facing to the rear. The keeps the bearing held against the back to prevent it from moving forward. If that makes sense.

thanks for the tips guys I'm going to need all the help I can get! After watching it run I've already found another problem, there is a steady drip of oil coming from the front of the engine where that pulley is where you would crank it! :help:
