I went to Boss hog's VA Fest, where (although I did NOT have my Cub with me) I was generously helped with my Super A projects. Cecil did TWO carbs:
and then pulled the protesting, STURDILY built seal on my PTO. (Bigdogs' advice of "just keep digging" came to mind!!):
He then went on to helping me with the Final, reinstalling the brake drum:
Mike & Doug helped with the Touch Control (picture double everything in the Cub TC):
Using the tool that Yogie made on site (now I need to make one to overhaul my second TC):
Once I got home, I FINALLY reassembled the PTO after having to use an air chisel to remove the woodruff key in order to get at the bearing:
With help from the forum, I was able to set up the Final in the press to get at that bearing and seal:
And this week I may swap the rebuilt Final for the welded one, install the PTO, and perhaps begin the Hydraulic Pump Overhaul. As soon as I get the rest of the 1000+ parts primed and painted, the REAL reassembly will begin!!
Let me know if enough is enough! Guess we all have done these types of projects and just really want to share the trials and tribulations...the frustrations as well as triumphs...with others who can appreciate them...thanks for your support!
