109 is a Wide frame Hydro 102 is a Narrow frame gear drive.
Odd numbers are Hydros and Even numbers are Gear drive on the older IH Cubs.
If you can get this shaft into the 102 it should work.Your going to have to drill 2 holes and weld the bushings fast to the frame.
109 has this extra jack-shaft? to pull both brakes at once.The 102 just pulls directly off of the brake pedal rod.The calipers will bolt directly to the 102 rear but you will need to swap out the axles for the disks.

Yes you can use a 109 or any other WF external brake axle in a internal brake cub like the 102 if you don't mind the axle disc brake rotors being on the axle . You could cut them off if you want to go thru that much work , but I've used a external disc brake axles on internal brake cubs without issue . They are both coarse spline axles and the same length .

You will need to pull the axles out of both 102 and 109 and swap them.then try to get the jack-shaft put into the 102.It's going to be a bit of work but it can be done.
If ya can get the shaft in it will work good.To bad creeper gears are going for top dollar again.There's a couple on Ebay for $200-$250.Just load all 4 tires and give it the beans it will pull your trailers.

I was talking to Jeremy at the show and he said he preferred the internal to the external (disc) brakes.
Said he felt the external ones weren't as good.
I am of the same opinion as this. My 107 I JUST got done painting and restoring before plowday in April is already starting to not hold on hills when the brake is set! My 100 on the other hand has been adjusted once since 2009 when I redid it and it will still hold on the hills well enough that I can slide the tires with the brakes on.

My external brakes on the 108 work great, had to adjust them when I first got it 15 years ago.

I've had to adjust the 102's internal brake about 3 times in 6 months. It will hold for a while and then it fades or then it will work ever other time, or not at all. No rhyme or reason, no pattern, so done with internal.
I'm not doubting what you say Casey. I've just had the best luck the other way. Hopefully you get everything sorted out and have a good working tractor in the end.

The CC 108 is going to need a carb rebuild (floods out) and possibly points. Its steering column is only held on with one bolt, can't tell if the other bolt is broken off or if the threads are clear. It does run and drive but the shifter must have a broken pin in it (swivels). The rear of the fenders are beat beyond what I would attempt to fix and expect to get good enough. Aso the starter puller on the engine has play, so looks like I have to get that fixed.
The CC 109 has a good steering column, good fenders pan that has paint of equal condition to the 108, so those parts will most likely go on the 108, as well as a belly guard that is missing off the 108. The steering wheel is in good condition on the 109, so that will go on the CC 102 (I'm using a JD steering wheel on it now) the brakes on the 109 are good as well, and will swap to the 102 somehow. I need to get a manual trans brake linkages though.
Need a suggestion on the seat. It's comfy but its rough around the edges.
