I have a questions for the Cub experts.

I have a narrow frame 122 K301 12 hp Kohler that I'm putting in my wide frame 149.  I tried to swap the front pto from the 149 onto the 122 motor and noticed a difference.  The clutch basket has different locations for the notches for removing the allen head retaining screws.  It also looks like the clutch disc from the 149 pto doesn't have enough room to fit into the 122 clutch basket.  Can anybody tell me what the differences are between these two pto's?

Here's some pictures of the clutch basket and the holes.

In the first picture I've aligned one hole.  The second pictures shows how the next hole is not aligned.  The third hole is the same way.

Lay both pulleys flat on the table and I bet they will all come back into alignment.

I tried that as well but the holes still didn't line up.  When I went to order a clutch rebuild kit from Cub Cadet Classic,  the part description asked that you specify "wide or narrow frame tractor" in big bold highlighted letters.

Yeah I remember seeing a post online on another forum that talked about what you are seeing. If I remember right, WF and NF clutches are interchangeable whole but parts can't be mixed up between them.

I figure someone out there knows more about this.
