I just ordered a new filter off of e-bay for my craigslist find 149. 723-3014 is the old part number for it, new number is 923-3014. might/should be the same for yours.

is it possible to put hydro lift on my 129? I mean by using parts from a 149 or something? Or would I have to swap the whole trans?

Kid, I would think that since both 129 and 149 are the same,except engine, you can put the lift off one onto the other. I would go ahead and get another bearing for the PTO clutch, your's may fail soon after being locked up and then being freed up. Just though I would offer that to you.

I have noticed the bearing is getting super noisy and the clutch wobbles a bit so A new bearing is needed.
A few more questions lol. I have noticed a knock in the engine so I spent the night pulling the engine pulled the oil pan off. I shook the oil slinger and I could hear the tap that it made. I then looked up the tolerances for the crankpin and I found it to be 1.5 and the max wear was 1.4990. So the crank is good. I closed up shop and looked up some connecting rods and I found one for a k301. What I want to know if this is the right one:http://rover.ebay.com/ar/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?mpt=2071114969&adtype=1&size=1x1&type=3&campid=5336612456&toolid=10001 http://www.ebay.com/....item3a64223b36.
Another thing is can we figure out the year by the spec number: 47446d

If I'm not mistaken, you scored one of if not the rarest production Cub Cadets made.

junkman you would be mistaken because the model 800 is the lowest production Cub that was made.
