Help identify pulley?

Postby radioguy41 » Thu Jul 06, 2017 1:53 pm

The pulley on my Cub is different than the spoke type I usually see. Any idea as to what it was originally part of?

Looks like a taper-loc pulley, does it have splines in it? I can't tell for sure from the picture.

It's a tapered hub for sure, but the diameter will be what determines what mower it works with. Possibly a Pennington or Kub Klipper.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Hi,
That style of pulley came with a Woods 59 rotary mower that I used to see, the mower was new, and came from a dealer, at the time.

I don't know if you know how to remove the pulley or not. The 2 other holes in the hub that aren't being used are for removing the pulley. They should have threads, the size of the 2 little bolts.
To remove the pulley, remove the 2 little bolts, and turn them into the 2 threaded holes, then use a wrench and gently and evenly turn them in, they will push the pulley off of the hub, which loosens the hub on the splines also.
You might need to run a tap in the 2 threaded holes to clean them out first. The parts might be rusted on if they have been there a long time, use penetrating oil if needed.
Don't turn hard on the 2 little bolts when trying to loosen the pulley, they will probably break off.

The sheet metal bracket bolted on top of the transmission case, probably with 2 bolts, is like the Woods mower had too. It is for holding to top of the rear belt cover. The rear cover can't work with the rear rockshaft there. Many Woods mowers were yellow originally. :)

I agree with Glen. Except for the color (mine is white) it looks just like mine that came with my Woods 59 20+ yrs ago.
Why is there never enough time to do the job right, but always enough time to do it over. :?:

OK, thanks guys. For now, at leaast, I'll just let it be. I don't ever see a time I would need it if that's what it fits.

If the pulley has been on there a while, and it looks like it has, it may not want to come off. I had that happen to me. Twisted off one of the little 1/4" bolts, and the stub wouldn't come out. Luckily there was enough of a gap between the hub and pulley that I could fit two pry bars in and used them to pop it loose. Took a lot of force.

The seal behind the pulley is leaking so off it comes. After scrapping and wire brushing a bit it appears it was at one time either white or yellow and yes, it is splined. Gotta stop at the hardware store tomorrow and get some bolts to fit those holes then we'll see how difficult it wants to be. Meanwhile I'll soak it with penetrant.

Get a grade 5 or 8 bolt.

Grade 8 or 9 only then be gentle 1/4 turn each alternating between bolts and it will come off begrudgingly....also a little lube under the end of the bolt helps...
