The yellow rockshaft in the first two pics is the original, but has been 'reworked'. It won't work with a Cub PTO anymore. The rest of the stuff is PO mod.
I checked a few places on parts. Rebuilt PTO is $185~, starter pulley/basket $50-$75. Didn't see the rockshaft listed, but they may have one. Otherwise, you will need to find someone with all these parts for a package deal or a donor tractor.

Thanks KennyP, The PTO is down on my list for now. I am waiting on parts that I need to get it started. I downloaded the parts manual which has been a tremendous help in getting the correct bolts and screws. Thanks for all of your help.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]26963[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]26962[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]26961[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]26960[/ATTACH] Here are some pictures of my 129 I took this afternoon. There are 2 of the front end so you can see what has been removed. Also in the foreground of one shot is the starter generator tensionior arm that you can see someone modified for a longer belt. I also have a picture of the hydro and cover. I think I am missing the lever that contacts the hydro dump buttons? Also, I put the carb back on today and there were two mounting gaskets a thick and a thin in the kit. I used the thick one, am I correct? Thanks and Merry Christmas!

The hydro cover on my 109 is also missing the plate that contacts the hydro dump buttons. Does anyone know what it is supposed to look like, so i could maybe make one. Thanks

129's are really worth the time to fix. I have a nice original 129 if you need any photos or measurements just let me know.
Good luck with your project.

I'm looking at three Cub Cadets A 1450,125, and a 70 my question is is the 70 axle housings and the axles the same as a 61 origanal that would be the deal maker for me but i just don't know.

Jkrogers If you need parts for your 129 let me know as I removed all of the lift parts a other parts that weren't needed for the construction of the Dumpster. That was a CC 149 and 1450. Most if not all the parts will interchange with your 129. Which by the way is my favorite CC.

wrbourget There is one thing you need to know about the 1450's. They use rubber motor mounts and unless someone has changed them they will be in bad shape. Theses mounts also seem to put more strain on the flexible coupler that attaches the drive shaft to the engine. You might want to check these before you start the engine the first time.

The only thing between an Original and a 70 that would interchange is the transmission housing. The axles and housings are completely different between the two as is the front reduction cover. Some engine parts will interchange as well, but for the most part an Original is different animal alltogehter from the other narrow frames.

I thought you guys might like to see how the PO had the PTO on the 129 rigged up so, I slipped it back on the shaft and took a picture. There are also a couple of shots of the parts that came off the assembly. The rockshaft assembly which has been modified and will need to be replaced. The mower actuating pulley is there and the collar but, I am not sure what or where the other pulley came from. When I purchased it, the deck was on and the belt to the mower hooked up so I assume it worked somehow. Hope everyone had a great Christmas.


WOW a JD PTO on a Cub Cadet.That's the 1st time I've ever seen something like that.
