Gooday
My neighbor has a great little Cub 109 which he recently purchased as a restore. I have been 'helping' him with the maintenance.
I can relate to all the handles and levers except for one.
It is a 6' round rod which resides at ankle level on the right side of the tractor and which appears to have absolutely no use. :confuse:
Any sage advice from the experts would be illuminating. I cannot seem to be able to download the parts manuals. All I get is machine code. Maybe the site doesn't like Macs.:wallbanging:
Thanks in advance,
Troll

What browser are you using & what PDF reader? One thing that seems to work, save to hard drive and then open from file instead of directly in browser. Give it a try & let us know.

MH81 Thanx for the quick reply. I just retried Cub 109 parts download. Was told I was at the download max of 2, whereas I have not downloaded at all today. I am using Safari and the latest Adobe reader update. This is my first try at downloading from this site since installing the latest Mac osx which uses a 32 bit base.

Ah, there we have it. Safari Doesn't play nice with the manuals. Scrambles them & makes it into machine code. I Have it on my IPad. Try Chrome + Foxit reader if the save, open trick doesn't do it.

MH81 ;
Well that would explain the machine code, but still leaves the problem where the site still claims I have downloaded the max for today. I will log out on my Mac and try a download from my Windows laptop I will keep you posted. Troll

Troll, the forum software doesn't like MAC's. When you go to download a PDF file you may end up with a file that has an extra HTML extension. If so, just remove the extension and it will work. I am running a MAC Mini and get the same problems. This should be addressed when the forum software is upgraded in the near future.

troll, your lever may be a creeper shifter. Sounds like the location for one. Good luck with the manuals.

I believe that is the hydro release lever used on the older of the 1X9 series before they included self-dumping valves that release pressure after a short period of time to allow you to push the tractor with the hydro disengaged.

Yes, it's the hydro release lever.
Also, creeper wasn't available on the hydros.

Boy, I blew it. For some reason, I was thinking this was a gear drive and not Hydro. Sorry!

I"m glad to help out. I am relatively new to MAC's and didn't want to keep running to the PC to download PDF's. Hopefully it won't be too much longer until it is all sorted out.
