Got it split and done!

Postby northpaw2 » Sat Jun 04, 2016 6:00 pm

Split my 50 Cub today's was not as hard as I thought ( first timer). Old seal didn't fit tight, NAPA one, and PO must not have wanted to drop the oil pan so used RTV to seal it. I replaced the old oil seal with tst's modified one, the old oil oaked clutch disc with one from Hamilton Bob's and the T/O bearing with a graphite one from TM Tractor. Lever height was within a 1/16 inch so I didn't touch it. Thanks for all the help, next is the distributor. I love wrenching on the old iron!!!!

I think I'm going to split mine this winter. I've never done it either, so I hope my experiences will go as good as yours.

hello from the soggy deep south , great job , the first is always a little concerning , but it is a fairly easy job , you just cant rush it .read all you can here on how to do it , and above all , for anyone getting ready to split , PLEASE CHOCK THE FRONT AXLE as discussed here in MANY threads . safety first . again , great job diving in , and a good feeling repairing it yourself , coppersmythe............................................ :{_}: ( my only rough spot is that last inch or so when you are mating the torque tube to the engine , just slowly jiggle and wiggle the shaft at the pto and fine tune the up / down , left / right orientation of the tube to the engine )

BOTH time we split it, we just had to jiggle the motor a little to get it together. I made a couple pins out of old bolts to help guide it together and used a big channel lok to squeeze it the rest of the way. Second time took us 15 minutes. :mrgreen:
