Bolt size and threads used on the right rear axle end

Can anyone tell me the bolt size and threads used on the right rear axle end… center on a Cub. (See attachment inside red color circle). Thanks in advance.

Yep, but after having to clean it out after years of nothing in there, I leave a bolt in it. Lol

The drive sprocket is held on with a bolt. The bolt is a 7/16 by 1 NC, which is probably the answer to your original question.

I don’t understand why IH never made a cover for this drive axle when not in use.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Maybe it was the next job of the guy that designed the PTO cover. He probably got discouraged by everybody mumbling and tossing his PTO cover over their shoulder when they went to hook something to the PTO.

When the axle driven ground speed pot isn’t in use all the dirt gets into that area. I’m not sure wether to omit that drive axle because I’ll never use it. I have extra finals sitting here.
