i have 3 cubs i just purchased 2 fcubs and a 1960 lo-boy as i was looking into a problem with the left brake i noticed a extension on the linkage to make it longer the on comparing the loboy to my other 2 i noticed the loboy has a extension between the diff and the brake drum housing this extension has a switch on it couldnt find any info in the manuals about it so i am just wondering what it is and what it dose i have pics just have to make them smaller will post later or i can email them

Sounds like you may have a Howard speed reducer. Check this thread:

thats exactly what i have pics match mine perfect dose any one know what the ratio is. and the problem that started this is the brake pedal dose not slide all the way on to the shaft like it is to short the brake pedal has a bolt on it dose this fit into the hole in the shaft. i have a fcub with the complete brake pedal setup on it as a spare but was wondering whats goin on with the one on my loboy

Welcome, Brian.

There is a pdf manual section above with a wealth of information. Here is a link to the Howard section and you will find manuals for the speed reducer there. They are quite valuable.

Brain:

G'day to you and congrats :applause: on acquiring not only your 1st but your 2nd and 3rd new to you Cubs :{_}: And of course welcome to the MCC -- Multiple Cub Club.

The Howard Speed Reducer is a very valuable item and required to use the Howard Rotovator but has a number of other applications such as other tillers, snow blowers/throwers as well as the low slope mowers etc.
