The bearing for the old gear drive cubs is its own thing, last I knew there was no generic crossover for it. The way to find a deal is to shop around the price. I just checked online and a new driveshaft and bearing for a narrow frame can be had from Patton Acres for less than 75 bucks for the two. Shipping would add to this but the price is way better than what you've allready found and I believe that Rich is an advertiser here on the site. I would have no trouble buying from him or Chris Westfall at Cub Cadet Classics in Ohio. Another good source for used and some new parts is Ray Weaver in Stephens Pa. I've bought parts from all these gentlemen and they are all good guys to deal with.

I made one out of a piece of stainless rod stock I had laying under the Lathe in the scrap box down at the farm.
It turned out really good.All I did was cut it to length and drill the 3 holes in it.I drilled it using the drill press with a small drill press Vice.
I also reused my old bearing.Soaked it in Kerosine till it freed up and drilled a small hole in the side and filled it with fresh grease using a chainsaw Bar syringe type grease gun.It's held up for 4 years of heavy use so far and still works great.

Now the easy way: Go to midwestsupercub.net order your predrilled shaft, and high performance throw-out bearing and your done. Last bearing I bought was $45. don't know about the shaft. If your in the Northeast, eastcoastpullingparts.com
