154 new owner.

Postby Megoto » Wed Mar 01, 2017 11:26 pm

Hello everybody. I am a new owner of a 154 cub lo-boy. I already love this tractor. Currently I have to replace some gears in the transmission as 1st and Reverse do not work, easy fix already have the parts. I have a fuel leak I am pretty sure is coming from the sediment bowl gasket. Upon looking up the parts for the sediment bowl I noticed that the fuel line I have on my tractor is different from the one in the manual. I did some searching and can not find the all metal fuel line the manual calls for. Does anyone know where I can get one? Thank You

Welcome to the forum. Metal fuel line can be made from a std 5/16 steel brake line from your favorite auto parts store. The threads for the carb and sediment bowl are 1/2 x 20. Just use the correct ferule fittings. There's several "HOW TO" ideas on the BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE forum. Go the INDEX PAGE and scroll down. Oh BTW, Carquest Auto Parts has the brass filter screen and nitrile gasket, part #40830. You might have to order it. HAMILTON BOB, site sponser might have the fuel line you are looking for if you don't want to make it yourself. Enjoy your LoBoy and check out a CUBFEST if you can.

Are you sure you need gears to fix the 1st/reverse problem, and not just a shifter fork?
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Sediment bowl gasket. Take the bowl to your nearest (any) tractor dealership. The will have an assortment of sediment bowl parts, including the gasket.

Welcome to the forum. The 154/184/185 series are mowing machines as my local equipment repair guy says.

Pull the tranny shifter cover off you may have a cracked 1st and rev fork. Easy fix now before more damage happens.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Since your will probably need to remove the sheet metal from the tractor to access the transmission top - couple of might as well things to do.

Move battery ground cable from sheet metal to the transmission top/case.

Check the throw out bearing and linkage. Grease the throw out bearing.

Check the pucks used to stop the transmission from turning when clutch depressed.

Welcome.

Thank you for all of your advice I will look into the shifter fork. And would NAPA carry the sediment bowl gaskets?

Perhaps, I have never tried an auto parts store for the gasket.

I have found that tractor dealerships (any make tractor) carry a large selection of sediment bowl gaskets.

I've found that nitrile gasket works better than cork, it won't dry out and get hard or swell like rubber. Another source is a mill supply like MOTION INDUSTRIES.

Most of it is 12 or 14 ga. Obviously the "hot" and "ground" from the battery will be much larger. Or you can buy a harness already made from some of the vendors. Brillmans is highly recommended by some members.
