Pulley,

Thu Sep 16, 2004 7:00 am

Yep, I got the pulley for my Woods L59, which is about 7" as I recall...

But they have the hub that fits the Cub (as listed above), and then there's all sorts of pulleys that fit that particular hub. Pretty sweet way to do it, I thought.

Oh.

Oh, and they had the books right there and got the part number in less than 30 seconds - so it wasn't a big deal to call them (as I did) with virtually no information other than "I have a Cub and a Woods L59 and need the PTO drive pulley."

Bill, I will take me a few days to get the measurments and I will pass them along. Allen, thanks I think I will order a hub with an 8" PULLEY from them. Lou

Bill, Here are the Mott mower drawbar bracket dimensions:

12" long x 2" wide 1/4 steel for the long piece that has the mower pulleys attached. This is wleded to a 6" x 2" x 1/4 which is them drilled for bolt that attach to the drawbar. Good luck.

By the way the Mott PTO pulley is an 8" unit. I'll try and order it from Tri State Bearing. Lou

Bill, many of the prices are a littl high, but $300 for the idler bracket is totally unreasonable. If you can wait until mowing season is over, I will take the one off mine along with what other aprts you need to a local welding shop and see what they would charge to make them. I would guess about 85 to 100 for the idler bracket, about 35 to 50 for the drawbar mount, and about 25 for the belt tensioner. Thes ar not estimates, but mor on the order of WAGs.

Allenlook, I tried to order that pulley from Tri-state and they said Huh ???? Perhaps you could check you invoice and get their order number for the hub and pulley. Thanks Lou

OK

Thanks for the dimensions Greenbunch.

Rondell where did you order the H978 10 SPL B hub. I called Mc Master, Tri State bearing a nd flail Master and all the I got was DAHHHHHHH.
What ever supplier comes up with it will sell more than 1. Greenbunch is looking for one too.
Alle was it the PTO pully that you ordered? If so number please( to coin a phrase)

Thanks
Bill

Greenbunch I found this at TMtractor parts. I need an 8 inch but the 7 3/4 will do and perhaps once we have a hub the larger sheave will be available from case or elsewhere. I Emailed an order to my dealer. I won't hear back till monday because he closes at 12 on sat. These numbers are for a rotary mower.

Beaconlight,
This is the number off the bushing I purchased from my CNH dealer. The critical numbers are 978(.978 diameter) and 10 spl(10 splines). The H indicates the size of the tapered hub I believe.
I purchased the hub and pulley for my Woods 42c from them. It cost about $45 for the both of them. If I remember the Woods parts were cheaper than The IH parts

This isn't a good solution for those without access to machine tools, but here's how I got around the problem one time. It may sound a little complicated, but really isn't such a big job. I was faced with chewed up splines on the shaft and a messed up hub. Maybe this will help someone.

I turned the shaft between centers so it would run true and turned the splines down just slightly so they had a true surface. Then I bored the hub accurately so it was also true and eliminated the spline, and cut a keyway. Then I made a bushing to adapt the two new diameters. The bushing was split for a keyway and a special key made to fit. I treated is as a smooth bore fitted to a smooth shaft. The tapered hub drew up just fine and the pulley ran true. I no longer have this Cub, but as far as I know, it is still working.

Thanks george I can picture what you say but can not do it my self. I had an old machinest friend that could have, but he has gone to the big machine shop in the sky.
I do have a couple of questions though,
1. how did you machine the splines on the shaft? Aren't they hardened? Same for the splines in the hub?
2. did the key use one of the splines as a key way?
3. was it a step key or did the the hub and bushing key way match a spline?

Bill,

1. The shaft isn't particularly hard. In fact, a little hardness helps.

2. Yes.

3. If I remember right, it was a step key. No biggie.

(4.) For a repair like this to be successful, it is very important to keep things tight, so they have no chance to move.

Yep I ordered the same set from IH and will report back how they fit. Thanks
