Hey everyone, the 122's 2nd and 3rd gear tend to slip and sound like they are grinding when starting to take off, checked the gears and they look fine and put fresh gear oil in the trans, cant think of anything else that would cause this, also still havnt managed to figure out how my sleeve hitch goes on, really need either detailed instructions or close up pictures of how its installed, thanks in advance! Ryan

Been so long since owning my Cubs that I forget how the axle hubs are....spline or keyed. If spline, you may have an axle or hub stripping itself out.

You might check the pin in the shaft behind the coupler. These have been known to shear and still pull somewhat.

Do you have pictures of the sleeve hitch? Also the narrow frame and wide frames use different hitches.

Cub cadet 3pt looks identical to this

The install manual can be found here for the WF 3 point;
WF 3 Point Lift Install - Manuals - Garden Tractor Talk - Forums

Cub calls their sleeve hitch a 3 point.

You have a narrow frame. The wide frames didn't start until the 1X8/9 series i.e. 108/128/109/129 etc.

Amigatec, thanks for reminding me this is a narrow frame. For some reason, I keep thinking anything with a higher # than mine is wide frame. Not so. I'll get it right one of these days. LOL

Check your teaser spring behind the clutch plate and all the coiled spring pins on the driveshaft. Sounds to me like on of the pins is broke. Chances are the pin that the sliding clutch plate rides on is broken.

i believe that if something is wrong with the clutch the pedal wont disengage the power to the transmission like its supposed to. in other words if its grinding while already in a gear then its something else. i worked on a quiet-line once that would not stop when you pushed in the clutch pedal. the throw-out bearing had failed.

Its in the clutch. Best bet is to pull it out and go through it. If you do it right you wont have to worry about it for another 20 years!

More than likely you need a clutch disc, teaser spring, clutch spring and get your plates turned or replaced. Oh and throwout bearing is probably shot as well.

There are plenty of places to get a manual online for free if you don't have one.

Check out this link for help as well. Improving the Drive Clutch Assembly in a Cub Cadet
