The Woods 59 deck is "essentially" universal, however, mounting hardware is unique to each tractor. Therefore, the short answer is no.

Since the deck is not L59 (discharge from left) it should work with basic arm attachments. Just my opinion. It does get confusing as my 3160A follows the pattern of the center blade leading, whereas Woods have it trailing. Does it not depend on the rotation of the PTO to the deck belts and the arbor bolts' threads?. RM 59 (rotary mower 59" ) is the universal one, I think.

I have used a Woods 59 on my LoBoy 184 for years, it works great. You just need the correct arms to attach the mower to the tractor. If you have the high flotation rear tires (13.6x16) it helps to have the spacer to set the rear wheels wider.

Yeah man, could be. But. These engines are pretty tough and it usually a combination of smaller things which cause a decrease of power. Unless it is blowing oil smoke, no oil pressure, obvious internal noise or overheating... it is ready for tuning.
Fwiw; I can pull my deck up to max and the freaking weeds and grass will choke it before something breaks. T'werent supposed to get that high :D

It thecomes down to knowing your Cub tractor. You don't want to kill it by overload when it is really a fine machine. All the smaller garden tractors have issues and I have sort of a graveyard of smaller tractors. The 154 is similar to the 185 but the 184 was different. Either way they already did the work and eventually people got tired. I think, looking back they would fondly remember these tractors. Coil packs and high pressure (different types) different $$$$$repair and say what ? What did it before? Well the ole worn out Farmall Cub. Well grass and weeds don't care a wit
We have the net and recommended sellers to go to. They knew this would come. It was/is good stuff .

Find a way to mount it and use it. The belt length will be different and the mule drive will probably need some custom mounting. Other than that, the 184 should be very happy running a woods 59 deck. That is what the 184 was built to do!
