1958 farmall cub trasmission

Postby Cubbuilder » Mon Oct 25, 2021 8:39 am

I am restoring a 1958 cub and replacing all the bearings in the transmission which came disassembled. The front input shaft bearing replacement has a shield on one side. Which way is it placed on the shaft? Cannot tell with parts photos or service manual. Any thoughts?

The shield side goes next to the gears. There is a channel and small hole directly above it that directs aplAHED OIL DOWN INTO THE SPACE BETWEEN THE BEARING AND FRONT SEAL. dang caps lock. The front seal retainer goes with the extended part into the transmission, and the flush side on the front of the transmission. The seal retainer also serves to hold the bearing and shaft from moving forward. If it is turned with the extended part of the retainer out the shaft can move enough for the pto to slip out of gear.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Thank you for the reply John, that's what I will do. As I looked over the seal side that makes perfect sense.

Make sure to replace bushing in reverse idler. Worn shaft and bushing will make transmission loud. Have fun
