cub rear wheels seized

Postby ksmithjr21 » Sat Dec 10, 2016 6:41 pm

just bought a early 50's cub went to pick it up it had been sitting a while, cleaned carb got engine purring like a kitten! went to put it in gear and the shifter was not moving the gears but the pto was engaging and disengaging with the clutch so clutch is good, opened up housing and put some heat to the gears as its in the 20's here and got it to at least shift into second, try letting the clutch out and it stalls, jack up the rear end with the tractor in neutral and the clutch pushed in rear wheels wont spin whats my next move?

Probably ice in the tranny. as little as a quarter cup of ice can lock up the tranny/rear end. Heat, under the tranny, for a bit, should free it, then drain the oil, and add new. (3 pints, NOT filled!

Supposed to be next to no fluid. A small pipe plug, on the left side of the tranny, is the "full" mark. Drain plug is under the middle of the differential part. Use # 80-90 gear oil.
