Hello all,

 

I just joined the forum with high hopes that one of you fine gentlman or ladies might be able to help me out. I have a 1960 something Cub Cadet Original as seen in the picture that I aquired from my dad. The tractor runs like a champ except for the squealing and slipping of the clutch in mainly in 3rd gear but a bit in 2nd as well. I think that I need to either rebiuld or possibly adjust the clutch. My problem is I would not know what parts to look for when trying to purchase parts for the clutch.

 

Does anyone have part numbers that I can look up?483044_4769342233773_268757357_n.jpg

Welcome to GTT. Check in our Manuals Section for the information that you need. You should properly service everything on the tractor before contemplating repairs. Often cleaning, lubricating and adjusting will solve problems. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks for the quick reply. When I brought the tracktor home last year I drained all the fluids including the tranfer case and cleaned it all before adding new. I had to rebuild the stearing column and the carburator. I suppose a good place to start on the clutch will be to clean it all up with degreaser and spray it down. Inspect it and go from there.

 

Next I will have to figure out what manual to download.

Get a few more posts and you will have better access to the manuals. Sounds like the bearing in there is going out.

Or a tad loose?  The belt was my first thought as well.  I would think a bad bearing or other clutch problems would appear in all the gears not just 2nd and 3rd.

yeah. My friend has a 111 that has an oily bely. it shows up some in 1st but the higher gears it is noisy and will barely move you. Does it still go the same speed before you had the problem?

Thinking about this more tonight.  There is no real adjustment persay for the clutch.  The one adjustment that there is is to make sure it is engaging all the way.  The way to adjust this is by way of a clevis on the rod from the clutch pedal.  It just chenges how far the clutch yoke moves.  If this is allowing full engagement and the discs are not glazed then it's gotta be the belt since you said it is slipping.  My dad's 61' Original squeals upon clutch engagement and it IS the belt.  

 

As for the year, the serial number is hand stamped into the transmission case.  It is behind the footrest on the side of the housing reading vertically on the right side as you are on the seat.  If you can get a picture of this area I can look up the number.

When I start out in 3rd gear it squeals and I need to manually push it to get it going. If my son is on it he can throttle down and start off in 3rd slowly then throttle up and it seems to go full speed. 2nd is not to bad but it squeals at take off until it's at full speed.

I went ahead and ordered a new belt this afternoon. I will clean the clutch assembly real well. Once I get the old belt off I will clean the pulleys real well before installing the new belt. I hope that does it. I will let you know, hopefully I will get the new belt before the weekend but I doubt it.

Does anyone know if I might be able to pick up a belt someplace locally? I went to Tractor Supply and they don't carry 1/2 sizes. If I remember right, the delta should be 31 1/2".
