M & W 9 speed for an Original

Mon Dec 15, 2003 10:29 am

A lot of you may know me from the http://ihregistry.net/cgi-bin/discus/discus.cgi or http://www.ihcubcadet.com/cgi-bin/forum/discus.cgi as William or Geezer and I have been looking for a M&W 9 speed(under, direct and Overdrive) for my Original for 3 years. I am curious to know how many are out there? I know of the one Mike Masheris bought on E-bay and built an Original around it. The pictures look great. Don Voght from WI sold a NOS one but never heard who got it. I actually only ever seen 2 that were at RPRU in Penfield, IL but never did see either owner. I know of 2 other people that own one(not for sale). One of those owners from IL worked for M&W when they were producing them in the 60's. I did get a copy of the installation manual but never saw any adds for or other information about them. I haven't learned how to post pictures but I do have pictures of 3 Original and scans of the installation Manual.

Since I last posted That message I have bought the Original mentioned from Mike M. I havent picked it up yet. Here is a link to see thr picture of an Original with a 9 speed M&W. Notice the 2 1/4" spacers needed to install the 9 speed between the frame and trans-axel. Still would like any information on any that are out there. Thanks and here is the web page
