we are in the process of restoring my sons first cub that he bought. in the process he came up with a creeper drive for it. i know on some of the drive shafts are marked, this one is not. i was hoping that one of you cub guys would be able to tell me how much i needed to cut off of it to make it the right. when we get her all back together i will post some complete pics.

I have a trans-axle sitting in my shed with a creeper on it, it still has the drive shaft in it. If I measured how far it sticks out would it help? I don't know what, or if there were any differences but mine came out of a narrow frame.

we got it figured out, with alittle help of a few buddy's. we borrowed a shaft that was marked and took it over for Grumpy to machine for us. got her home and installed today. its getting closer to being together, not happy with the paint on hood and side panels will probably wet sand and re-spray in the next couple of days and we have to do some patch work on the firewall.

Hey that's looking really good.

Those rear fenders are a bugger to get perfectly straight aren't they.

My 127 was pretty straight but had the corners bent up from loose tire chains and my 149 well it's rear fenders are all kinked up from someone backing into trees and it had 150 lbs of weights hanging off of the rear hitch.

I'm working on getting them sorted.

I rolled the paint on my 127 with a small roller then sanded and cleared it.Turned out pretty darn good and the paint is on it really thick.My 149 is going to get sprayed once I get new hydraulic lines.One is seaping and one is cracked and leaking.

yes they are!!! we worked on them for several hours, but now you cant even tell i welded them. now if i can just get the hood sprayed like i want it, it will be done. i've sanded it back down twice now so hopefully 3rd times a charm. waiting for cooler weather to spray again. we have a show next wkend and my son says he's taking it with or without the hood.
