After the rear cover is off, reach in with a hammer and punch and knock the plug out from the inside.

Look at page 6 of the PTO manual under Cub Attachments in the PDF manuals above.

Hi,
Welcome to the website. Yes, there is a small seal that goes in the trans case hole for the PTO lever.
Something you need is the PTO pilot bushing. It goes in the end of the long clutch shaft. It might or might not be there. I've never seen a Cub without a PTO to see if it has the bushing.
If there is no bushing, you need to put one in, it is the ID of the front end of the PTO shaft.
Here is one from TM Tractor so you can see it.
The 2nd and 3rd pages are the PTO, it's in the upper part of the pic, the lower part is the belt pulley attachment.
When you put it together, adjust the PTO shifter guide, it is called, on the corner of the gear shifter top, so the PTO lever engages as much to the rear as it will. Leave the bolt loose, and engage the PTO lever, and move the guide rearward then tighten the bolt. It has to be as far rearward as it can, and not bind when you move the lever forward and back. If it binds, move the guide ahead slightly until the lever works smoothly :)

Does the 90 degree splines let you put a v belt pully on it i have a bush hog 412 belly mower. i believe the PO customized the bar the pulleys run off for a 90 degree housing?
Does that make since to any one? if so does anyone know where i could find the 90 degree setup?

You will also need a seal to go in the transmission on the outside where the shaft comes through. It is unavailable from Case/IH so you can get one at an auto parts store. Here is a picture of one I just recently purchased. The one on the left is an original felt seal.

Hi,
Here is a pic of a Belt Pulley unit from TM Tractor. The manual above doesn't show that you need one, but if someone changed the mower and you do need one, put an ad in the Vine on this website, and you might find one to buy. :)

I don't know about the 90 degree drive setup but on my Bush Hog 412, I'm using a Pennington mule drive which is bolted to the rear of the transmission/PTO cover. I had to make a couple of adapters to connect the mower to the finals. (You can see the right side square bracket in the picture.) Works good even with the FH in place, no clearance problems encountered. I purchased the mule drive from a forum member by advertising on THE VINE Classified. Stan
