I have been working on my 122 the past few weeks, mainly the engine but am getting to the tractor now. I rebuilt the engine k301 into a new block and got a 2nd generation head in good condition for it. My old block had balancing gears but this new one doesnt (I hadn't planned to use them anyway). Currently the carb is apart and soaking in gas while I wait for the rebuild kit. I got a creeper gear recently in a trade with someone who lives near me and really likes cub cadets. The shifter lever spins around so that will need a new part and I will be removing the driveshaft soon and shortening it. I will upload some pictures soon.

Ummm! I see the links to pix, but no pix on my end. I'm not familiar with creeper gear, always thought built into gear case. Will be interesting to see what that is about. Is there a pedal or lever or what to make that work?

Cub Cadets use a separate direct/under drive speed box that bolts to the front of the regular transmission.  They were an option on all gear drive tractors.  Just has it's own shift lever to change the speed.

Got some more done, the engine is almost back together and the carb is rebuilt just not on yet. I found a dipstick housing from a guy near me who I got a rear hitch from, just need to get a dipstick now.

I took the driveshaft out and got it all disassembled, the rolled pins didn't come out easily I sprayed them a few times with penetrating oil and they sat for day or two. I disconnected the transmission from the tractor and saw that the reduction input shaft had lots of wear on the rolled pin hole so I removed it and was able to find a used one for a reasonable price. I am hoping to get the bearing off the input shaft and reuse it since it is in good condition. When I took out the input shaft there was a metal cap it seems at the back of it that I just hammered out does anyone know if that's replaceable or if it was part of the rear bearing? I ordered a new driveshaft from Brian Miller and his cultivator spring kit. My throw out bearing may be reused too it seems in good condition. Also got the front PTO clutch apart and cleaned up a little bit.

The parts all came in and got some more work done. The reduction shaft is in, got the creeper on, and the clutch spring is on the new shaft.

Nice work! Never seen that technique with the use of clamps but good to see if you don't have access to a press. So you drilled a hole in your wood engine dollie for the shaft and start clamping...too cool! That third clamp no doubt was a must.

The clamp idea did work well for what it was, for the future I want to find what type of press I should have used and get one lol, I just wanted to do it with what I had. I was careful with that spring until I got the pin in so it didn't shoot the bearing at me. I made it a little further yesterdayuploadfromtaptalk1452265671991.JPG uploadfromtaptalk1452265680476.JPG uploadfromtaptalk1452265693747.JPG uploadfromtaptalk1452265696956.JPG

In the future I will make the breather valve come up higher but I flushed and filled the Creeper before reinstalling the transmission. I had to grind out the creeper lever slot wider.
