Never know what's inside

Postby seahaul » Tue Oct 26, 2021 5:52 pm

Have a friend's Cub with a noisy transmission. Took the shifter cover off and found it was packed with grease- not a drop of oil!
Took the rear cover off the differential and found a piece of t-shirt material wrapped around the differential!
Don't know who my friend bought it from, but looks suspiciously like someone was hiding something bad.
Any suggestions about how to get all that gooey grease out?

Scrape out what you can, then fill half full with kerosene or diesel. Drive around awhile, then repeat as necessary. Won’t matter if there is some residual. It will eventually dissolve in the new gear oil.

Any idea of why the cloth was in the differential?

banana peels, rags were used by sleazy people to quiet gear noise

Saw dust and oat meal have both been used to hide gear noise as well.
Too bad not everyone deals off the top of the deck. :(

Might look for an early cub cadet and source the trans for the cub. There was one locally for sale for 150. That would not buy very many trans parts at today's prices.

I picked up a nice Cub Cadet trans. At the Portland show, for $75, in Aug. Did all the little changes, necessary to make it a Cub trans. It’s now working smoothly in Cubota. There are about a dozen steps in making the conversion, reversing the ring gear being the most difficult so the rest is all easy stuff. Some folks prefer to transfer all the innards to their original case but I decided to use the entire transmission. It’s worked out well.

Cubota is NOT Ohio State gray!! It’s silver and red! Yes, it’s painted silver.
