Steering wheel shaft

Postby wrz » Sat Sep 12, 2015 9:02 am

Yesterday at the Rocky Mt Cubfest I noticed that later cubs have the shaft about 4 inches longer than earlier cubs. What prompted this change?

I would have thought that would call for shorter steering shafts. :lol:

tst responded to Bob Mc carty"s post about assisted steering by stating a gear change on square hoods inproved the steering. Shure enough the parts book shows a change from 21 to 24 on the large gear and a change of the shaft that has the smaller gear. This happened mid 63. I assume the longer shaft means the tractor has the improved stearing. This answers my own queston.

Also the LowBoy's have a shorter steering shaft. I THINK IT WAS SAID THAT IT MADE IT EASER
TO GET ON THE TRACTOR.

No. There was early/late as already discussed. At any point in time, standard Cub and Lo-Boy used the same shaft.

I know that the worm drive outlasted some of the other points in the steering system, BUT -- with the gear ratio difference, was there any shortening in the lifespan of the gears?
