Please explain "continuously fiddle with it" in a little more detail. Once it's set nothings going to change it except eventual wear on the TOB. This may be a clue to something else wrong.vwfish wrote:........ I would adjust the travel, which is a major pain on this tractor as the only adjusting point I can see is the clevis inside the inspection hole, and had to continuously fiddle with it for proper operation (very annoying).
Boss has already covered some of the points here but what is the condition of the TOB graphite now? Just because it's reatively new doesn't mean it's still in good shape, especially if it was not oiled/greased and marinated ahead of time either by coming that way or you doing it.vwfish wrote:............Problem is, there isn't enough travel to fully release the transmission, so the gears grind. Bewildered, I pulled the tractor apart again, and raised the fingers to 1 1/8". That caused me to have to move the clevis back to keep the proper clearance between the throw out and the pressure plate.....so, same problem.

Nope, just 1940's technology on the cheap. A Cub was originally designed to be inexpensive and last seven years. Luckily IH came to their senses after making about 32,000 of them and came up with a better way of pedal adjustment.vwfish wrote:........In order to adjust the clutch pedal travel, I have to remove the pin from the clevis, remove the bolt holding the bottom of the yoke together, drop the clevis down, adjust it and put it all back together again....this seems odd.
This does seem odd. Where is the slop at? As you mention this seems to be where the issue is.vwfish wrote:Additionally there is quite a bit of slop when the yoke bolt is removed, so if I'm not careful when reassembling everything the distance from the bearing to the plate fingers will change....this too seems odd.
Are these the same directions that said to set the finger height to 7/8"? Don't know how much I'd trust them. Unless the 7/8" is something special for the thrust bearing. Did the "kit" include the TOB or did you get it seperately?vwfish wrote:The clutch kit came with directions and pictures, so I'm fairly certain I am measuring the finger height correctly.
One measurement is dependent on the other. If you put bigger tires on your truck then you'll need to get a bigger drop hitch to keep the trailer level. Put the small tires back on and now the hitch will drag so you have to go back to the shorter drop to level out the trailer.vwfish wrote:Now here is the odd thing. If I adjust the fingers, I have to make a corresponding adjustment in the pedal or the bearing will not be the correct distance from the fingers. In other words, no matter where I adjust the fingers (and they are all exactly the same height), I have to adjust the clevis to keep the clearances correct so the actual distance the fingers travel doesn't change and the gears grind.

I did that on my 47 with the loader. have to split at transmission, change the pedal assembly with the carrier tube that goes over the brake shaft, the rod, and the throwout carrier assembly. the carrier assembly can be replaced through the hand hole, but is much easier if you also split at engine.BIGHOSS wrote:No meaning to hijack this thread, but I always meant to ask this question and never got around to it. Can the non-adjustable clutch rod assy that came on the early cubs be changed out to a later adjustable one?

fish, did you by chance change the carrier/hanger assembly for the throwout bearing when you were working on it?
