'53 Cub Rescue (Phase 2)

Postby xraycajun » Wed Dec 06, 2017 12:05 pm

Hello again everyone! I have completed phase one of my '53 cub. I was able to get the tractor running and driving. I loaded the tractor on a trailer and brought it home to the garage where I can begin Phase 2. Over the next few months, I will repair the steering and brakes... hopefully sending lots of pics during the journey.

I will start with removing the spindles.

All the parts waiting a good cleaning.

These look like the original style seals. Any advice on how to remove them? They are on quite tight.

the stack kept hitting the low-hanging limbs. Plus, the downward exhaust absolutely ensures no rain in the engine.... I'll be returning that "feature" to stock (with a raincap, of course).

I've made some progress on the cub this week. The entire front axle and steering box is removed. I am now in the process of cleaning and inspecting parts for wear. Do the gears look OK to you guys. I've never seen new ones so I can't tell. The worm gear needs some cleanup for sure.

Hi,
You can turn the larger gear 1/2 turn around on the splines, and then it will use the other 1/2 of the gear that is never used, if it is in the original position.
After cleaning the teeth, look closely for wear, someone could have turned it around before, if it was ever apart.
The pics are a little small to see the teeth up close.
