I came across most of a Cub cadet 126 for sale

I remember reading here that some early cub cadet transmissions can be used in cubs.

It this one of them?
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

I believe so, the shifter cover will give it away, looks just like a regular cub

Hi,
Someone had at least one pic on here before of a Cub Cadet transmission, I don't know the model number of the tractor. Whichever one it was, it had what looked like the same trans case.
I think the oil fill plug, and oil level plug were not there, in the positions the Cub has them.
I'm not sure about the drain plug, it might not have been there either.

The Cadet evidently has some other method of checking the oil. You people that own them probably know what it is.

The input shaft from the engine is different than the Cub also.

I think I have read on here that the differential ring gear is on the opposite side from the Cub, and has to be changed to use the trans in a Cub.

There is also no Cub style PTO in the Cadet trans pic I saw. :)

A Cub Cadet Original is what you want to look for. 1961-1963. It is the closest match to a Farmall Cub.
