Hi,
Here is a 1949 Cub owner's manual if you don't have one. The experts on here recommend that people read it, if you never have before. It has lots of info about operation, maintenance, and lubrication.
Below that is an owner's manual for the Cub 54 blade. You don't use the master control lever that it shows in it, if the Cub has Touch Control. :)

Went to Steiner tractor on Friday to get gasket and oil filter. They have parts on the shelf, was amazed by that. My transmission is leaking, someone tried to weld, did not do a good job. I opened up the rear and cannot see any damage on the inside. I have done a temporary fix with jb weld. I am a Plumber/ Pipefitter, and work with welders everyday, and we know we can weld with 7018, must slow down the cooling after the repair. Just going to find another transmission, and replace as my knowledge and confidence increases.

The quickest way to post pics is as an attachment to your post.
Go to bottom of your screen "upload attachment";
"Browse" to the pic you want on your computer;
"Add the file";
Position your cursor where you want it in the post and click "Place inline"

"Preview" your post before submitting to see what it will look like.
