1st. road test

Postby David Lee » Sat Oct 15, 2016 1:43 am

]So It's only been a week and not only did I take my first test ride.
(still can't get the clutch to disengage, had to start it in gear)

But also bought my 2nd Cub, A 1970 model with lots of good parts I needed.

Taking any motorized vehicle, including a Cub tractor, with a known inability to disengage the clutch on a public roadway is unsafe and criminally negligent. Posting video of the same incident passing unknowing traffic is an invitation for legal problems. What if someone was hurt; property was damaged; or someone just wants video to cause you problems? Might even cause legal problems for the forum.

Keep unsafe vehicles off the road and recommend you think about your posts both here and on other social media.

Are you serious. Not being a lawyer, you'll have to explain that one for me.
furthermore ,
it was a 5 minute ride down the dead end rural road I live on.
past a total of 4 neighbors property at the blazing speed of 3 miles an hour.
plus, I did have brakes AND insurance .
So,,,,, thanks for your concern . (if that's what it is)

Sounds like the input shaft has been stuck on the pilot bushing or the disc is rust stuck to the pressure plate. Splitting the tractor would get it right but if its the pilot bushing you might be able to free it up by using a long tube like that which is sold with Seafoam going up through the access hole underneath and spraying the face of the bushing. If its the pressure plate thats stuck I'd bet that there's still a chance that if you engage the clutch and tap the brakes lightly as you roll it might release.
Worse case scenario if you end up splitting the tractor yes its a little involved, a little time consuming but not really hard at all.
As for taking the tractor down the road I do it all the time. NJ just calls for three things when doing this, a flashing yellow lamp, a slow moving vehicle triangle and a brain.
I've got at least two out of three covered. :lol:
It'll be nice to see how that little gem hidden under the rust progresses. Good luck with it. :hattip:
