Cub 100 Wheel Driven Manure Spreader Gear for bed chain

Postby Jimbobway » Mon Jul 19, 2021 8:05 am

[img]Hello
I have a IH Farmall McCormick Cub 100 Wheel Driven Manure Spreader. I trying to replace the passenger side front gear/adjustment that moves the chains for the bed of the spreader. There is not enough slack to install the gear and adjustment plate which bolts together. I'm not seeing any place where the chain would come apart. I tried installing with the gear on the adjustment plate and also removing the gear... bolting up the adjustment plate then sliding the gear on and I still do not have enough slack in the chain. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you

Welcome to the Forum. The bed chain separates by rotating a link about 90* so the slot in the round end lines up with the flat of the adjacent link. A hammer can then be used to separate the links. The front sprocket is not a drive sprocket but guides the bed chain as it rotates up and back. I've attached a piece of baling twine to the front of the chain and then pulled the slack forward with a bar clamp. It is a little tricky to get the sprocket in place as it inserts both forwards and to the outside. After your second post you have access to the manual section which has a manual for the 100 spreader.

Welcome to the Forum!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

As Bob said, after your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

Remember:
  • When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
  • Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
  • When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.

Above style tool makes separating the chain links easy. The tool is normally not needed if the chain is worn and recently used.

Put penetrating oil in the joint to be separated. Work the joint a bit then separate.

Note to me. Check to see if I still have the separator tool. Haven't use it in 50 years.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thank you Bob for the quick response. I did order the Owners Manual... Setting up Instructions Parts List but not much did I find for installing the chain for the bed. I have the chain wired up to take our the slack so I will look at separating the chain from one of the links... would I have to do both sides in order to get enough slack or just the side I'm installing the gear the "guides" the chain : )
Thank you again... Jim

I think you can do just one side. Separate the links inside the box, it's much easier to reattach from the top than the bottom. If you click on "quick links" upper left of the page, and then on "PDF Manuals", it will take you to where you can click on "Cub", then "attachments" and on "spreaders" near the bottom of the list for the 100 manuals. Let us know if you need more help.

Thank you again Bob!
I clicked on...

What showed up related to "Cub" was > "Cub Cadet...
I'm then not seeing "attachments". What is displayed is > [Cadet Brochures] and > [Cadet Manuals] I clicked ont [Cadet Manuals] but not seeing "spreaders"

Try Farmall Cub instead of Cub Cadet.

Read your PM and check the Vine.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
