Cub Steering Thrust Washer

Postby B Shaver » Tue Mar 24, 2015 7:24 pm

I'm attempting to reduce the freeplay in my Cubs steering wheel and the thrust washer, item 21 page 46 is pretty well worn out. What is the thickness of a new washer and is it flat on both sides? No material left to adjust out the worm movement.

Here's a link to an old post that gives several options on where to buy them: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=83595&start=15

Edit: Which manual did you give the page and part # from?

Thanks for that thread link, Bob. I just ordered four sets to split with ArtC.

I am looking at Rudi's Cub parts manuals for the early Cubs. The late revisions Identify the part as item 23. The Part number 350 905 R1 and it's unworn edge is approximately .10 inches thick. I have the material and can turn it on the lathe.

Bill, A new one is flat on both sides. I can measure the thickness of a new one when I head out to the shop in about an hour.

Bill, Here's all the dimensions in one spot to simplify things: ID is 1.125", OD is 2.25", thickness is .125". Those measurements off a new OEM thrust washer.

The worn one I have is about .125 thick running the vernier over the entire face. There are peaks and valleys on both side though. I one section that measure up to .135, but I think the material is deformed.

Glad I came back to this. TT-1800 is the wrong OD for a Cub washer. I need to do some more hunting.

Bob, If you can't find the right OD, I would doubt that having the radius 3/16" narrower would make that much difference with how we use Cubs.

Thanks for the feedback on that thickness. Now to turn the new washer and wait for a nice weather day to tear things apart again.
