The only possible way for the bushing internal splines to be worn is for it to be improperly installed and then extensively operated.
What are the numbers on the existing bushing and pulley?

The bushing on Amazon is an "H".

Here is how to properly install.

If the numbers are not readable, the existing bushing can be identified from this table on page 4.

I guess I've only seen the H type bushings (with the flange mounted outward) used on woods mowers. It looks like it may work on that type pulley if the other (unused) holes are threaded. Of course I could be totally confused. :lol:

Now that you mention it...

The H series bushing may be too small for the tapered bore in that pulley. Identifying the existing components as a starting place seems important to me.

Looks like the word EATON is cast into the pulley. Stan

It is an Eaton pully, the only numbers on it are visible in the picture. I may be able to use a 2 hole bushing, as long as one hole in the new bushing lines up with one hole in my pulley. Not sure if I want to take that chance though. I believe Bus Driver is right, I need to identify what I have and go from there.

I'm not sure what used the 3 hole pulley/bushing but I have had an IH, Woods and Pennington mowers and all used the 2 hole. Maybe a Worthington.

There is one available but I don't know if it fits your pulley.

Well, a new pulley solved the problem. Thanks for all the help.

Glad you got it resolved. Inquiring minds want to know. A new pulley? or a new hub, or a new hub and pulley? Thanx :coffee:

Smokeycub, sorry should have been more specific. I bought a new pulley and bushing set. I could not find a three hole bushing to match my old pulley, so I bit the bullet and spent the money.

Danco/IH C-2 mower uses 3 bolts. Pretty sure it's marked 'Eaton'. There should be NO slop between the hub and PTO shaft, they usually don't wear (like a sicklebar mower does.)

Thanks buzzard, I looked at danco pulleys, but all I found were two hole bushings. I believe this is an original woods pulley. Do you think that they changed to a three hole design as the horsepower increased?

The new pulley is good and tight, no slop at all.

Don't know about the Woods ones, but think the 59 mower has a 2 bolt setup. The IH splined one is $170 and $35 for the pulley. At least they are still available. For a Woods 42 would guess about the same thing. Key is the 10 spline to fit a Cub.

Glad you got it done. I can't get to my Cubs because of the snow.... no mowing in sight.

The links posted earlier have charts showing the dimensions of the components. Measuring the bore on the old pulley and bushing should enable comparing them to the Browning components. Most often, the tapered portions are the same for all manufacturers. The flange of the old bushing probably has identifying markings.
