Cadet trans & diff

Postby jim turner » Sun Jun 10, 2012 11:43 am

I bought a cadet tranny for the purpose of transfer the gears etc into a F Cub my question is how is a easy way to get the clips off of the axles so I can remove the axles, do you have to take the spider apart?

I haven't had the Cadet differential apart. No need to. But typically you need to remove the spider gears to remove the keys.

Not a difficult or time consuming task. Remove the bolt(s) holding the pinion shaft in place. Slide out the pinion shaft. Carefully keep the gears and any shims with the gears. Remove the keys.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Jim, if you mean the "C" clips on the Cub Cadet axles, rotate them around until you are looking at the "opening" in the clip, and push on both "legs" at once with a wide blade screw driver, stiff putty knife, etc., and the clip will normally pop off. Works for me.

You have to flip the ring gear over anyway to put a Cadet transmission in a Cub. Otherwise you will have 3 speeds in reverse.

Jim, I suggest you save the shims from the Cub case and use them when you install the Cadet gears. The gears and bearings are precision machined so the shims are more for the differences in the case. It may not be perfect, but it is a better place to start, in my opinion.
