cub split alignment tool

Postby spaceghost » Wed Jun 04, 2014 11:15 am

Hello
I was looking for some hardware on the web and found this tool that made me think that it could be useful putting a cub back together after a tractor split

I've used these quite successfully:

Just a couple of bolts of the correct size, cut off the heads, and grind a point (entirely optional). They work like a champ.

To delete a duplicated post you just press the "X" next to the edit button. This can only be done when the duplicate post is the last post. Once there is a reply the duplicate cannot be removed by the poster.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

If memory serves me correct, Art Chester (ArtC) gets the credit for making the original suggestion about using these to help put our split Cubs back together.

For those wanting the size of the bolts, here are some details:
7/16 coarse thread bolts
Image
I used ones 3 inches long
Image
Cut off the heads and this is the result. I have used these several times with excellent results.
Image
These are a bit more fancy. The points are not necessary, but a friend gave them to me and they work well also.
Image

Cheap and very effective.

Bill

One thing you might want to consider would be to make a flat spot on opposite sides close to the end so you can use a wrench to turn them out should one stick some time.

Excellent suggestion, John. Hasn't been a problem yet, but certainly could be.
