Does the 128 and the 71 have the same tranny and clutch setup?

I think the only differences may be in the style of brakes and the length of the driveshaft. The 128 should have external brakes and the 71 should have internal.

Are the internal better or worse than the external? Where does a 124 fall into the mix? Thanks

With the external, you can set it up as separate brakes for turning. I did check our parts manual and that is showing a hydro. Looked in my book and it is a gear drive, so that uploaded manual needs work, LOL I don't have a parts manual for a 71 or a 124.


EDIT: Went back and checked our 128 parts manual. It is really a 129 manual. I'll see about correcting that.

I've got a guy who may trade a 124 or a 128, maybe both for the allis. I'm trying to compare the 71 I had for a brief time.

I don't know if the 124 has int or ext brakes. Some like the int better and some like the ext better.

Cub 124 is Gear drive Narrow Frame with Internal Brakes.Cub 128 is a Wide frame Gear Drive with External brakes.Both should have a Kohler K301 12hp engine.The narrow frames have a smaller flywheel and you can really tell the diference in tourque between a big flywheel engine and the small flywheel engine.
The Internal Wet brakes don't wear out as fast as the external brakes.Mainly because external brakes are out in the weather all the time.
Internal brakes are more of a Trans brake.They stop the gears from turning.And the External brakes stop each Wheel from turning Like a car does.

Love my 127 Narrow frame hydro but my 149 wide frame hydro is a diferent animal.



Just found what I was looking for.Here check this link out for IH CC and CCC Timeline.

Just for folks' info, I have replaced the parts manual with a correct on. I'm sure it was just an oversight originally, but I wanted a good version in there. Plus this is a lot bigger file, all 42 pages.

They would have the same transmission and clutch. The internal brakes are better in my opinion, although as mentioned external brakes can be set up individually. I have a 108 which is a 10 horse version of a 128 and it is a real nice tractor. I would say go for it. Any attachments?
