What is the asking price?

I don't need one, someone else may. I have the rear end from a 122 with PTO under bench.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thanks, that just made my decision easier. I will call and get them.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Eugene, I am buying these for parts for a couple of my Cubs. I have no plans to sell them.

I just got this from Art in a PM.

The original transmission can be used as is. you need to flip the ring gear or you will have 3 reverse and one forward speed. swap your top shaft and counter shaft cover. be sure to install two plugs where the shifter rails come out. add your pto.

The cases on the later tractors are not directly interchangeable, but the gears all swap fine

That, along with a few of the replies here have answered everything I need to know. If they look good in person, I will have them tomorrow.

I put a cadet engine in one of my Cubs a few years ago, and yes, the ring gear must be turned around. Also, if I remember correctly, you have to knock out the hole where the PTO shifter lever passes through on the right side.

"Dale Finch" I put a cadet engine in one of my Cubs a few years ago

I bet that's an interesting look.

Bill,
My recollection is that both will work but the since the Originals used a belt drive system vs the direct drive of the subsequent models, there was something about the case that needed to be changed.

So it sounds like the ones in the Originals would not bolt up.

These are for sale down the road from me, but I will pass on them if they won't work.


I watched the crew at one of the NEO CubFests put a Cub Cadet Original tranny in someone's Farmall Cub. Could be mistaken here, but what's missing is the FULL port plug from the side of the tranny case. It's the pipe plug you take out when filling the case that let's you know when it's full. Farmall Cub has one; Cadets don't.

Hi,
Yes, in pics I have seen on here of one or more of the Cub Cadet transmissions, one or more of the trans oil plugs was not there. The housing had no hole or holes.
The case had the places for the plugs, but no hole or plug.

I'm not sure if it was the filler plug, level plug, drain plug, or all 3 plugs not there.

You could check the trans and see if the plugs are there. :)

No big deal, they met my intentions and they are safe in my shop at this time.
