G'day and

Image to Farmallcub.com :big smile: Forum Family. And you have come to the right place for all things Cub related. If you click on the Site Rules, Regulations, & Important Information, it will point you to :arrow: the Welcome Wagon wherein you will find links to many useful sites and topics. One of the most important resources are Owner's Manuals, Parts Catalogs and Service Manuals. The Cub Manual Server is the home of the jpg versions and the PDF Manuals -- well the pdf's of course :wink: Enjoy!.


TC-131 Parts Catalog Revision 8 - Other Equipment - IH 3160 Rotary Cutter. That is the best I can do as I do not have an Owner's Manual scanned yet.

I searched the database and I found the answer to your question:

156" is way too long. Should be about 105-108 maybe.

How about the belt pattern? Maybe I just have it wrong

I didn't notice the links. That's actually a 3160 deck I have a 3160A. It's quite a bit different.

Doesn't have the size, but does show the IH parts #, so maybe you can cross reference somewhere.

@ ghennessy

Where did you find that?

I ended up taking an educated guess and put on a B106. The tensioner seemed tighter than it should be, but still had a little play.
