C-2 Parts

Postby shwtrkman » Mon Jul 22, 2013 11:40 am

I am new to this so pardon my fumbling. I have a belly mower on my 1973 cub and I believe I have a C-2 mower. I am having slipping problems while mowing and it does not have to be tall grass. I took the pully off and underneath there are four spring loaded nipples that go into slots on the mower assembly. I think my problem is the springs. They all appear to be broken and do now apply enough pressure to enguage the mower blades. I cannot locate any pictures not can I locate any parts. I have been on the Woods website but I have had no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to the C-2 manual: http://www.cleancomputes.com/Cub/Cub%20 ... 0Mower.htm It was made by IH/ Danco, not Woods. The easiest way to tell the difference if your deck has the octagon shape is that on the C-2 the angle iron rails that run from the deck to the mounting brackets in the back are straight. On the Woods, they angle outward. Messick's (IH dealer) shows the part # as 474032 R1, and available at $5.11 each. http://www.messicks.com/CAS/59229.aspx You might take a broken spring to a hardware store and see if you can match it.

Edit: You'll need to click on "platform and spindle" to get there.

Yep, definitely a C-2 mower. My preference (by far) is to buy from Carter and Gruenwald http://www.cngcoinc.com/ It's a good, stout mower.

The pins are what 'drive' the mower spindle and when you push in the clutch they ride the slopes on the other piece. Makes a good racket, but doesn't scare the deer. So if enough of the pins are not 'extended' to drive the spindle (broken springs) you will have a problem. They are a very often neglected maintenance item (a bit of grease).

Looks like this with the sheave (pulley off):

If you need to place an order, it would be worthwhile take a good look at the blades, new blades make a world of difference. Also they are reversible if one side is beat up. You do want them to be approximately equal in weight etc for balance.

Yep, that's it. I will order the springs immediately as I am down until they arrive. Thanks for all your help. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Don't give me too much credit Rudi. I can't get the fast hitch one to work right, then again I haven't tried too hard. I felt bad for Rufus just sitting while I run the one with a flail mower, so I did some mowing with it a while back. Then it started throwing the belt. Hopefully the new belt I just got will cure it.

As with anything that spins or turns, good bearings and alignment are key.

Larry:

You will get it figured out, we have faith in you :!: You are right though, as with all mowers .. alignment and bearings are key ingredients.

Actually Rudi the answer may be in the thread about PTO shafts. I never paid attention to the alignment of the U-joints. It's a splined shaft, so it will allow a user to get it wrong. The Mott's have a way to idiot proof it, shaft isn't square so it only goes together the right way. It can sit right where it is until I have time to test that theory, it's a heavy and ungainly beast. Even has new blades!
