Morning friends,

  With Covid Boredom striking and staying home I have decided to tackle a project I have been putting off

due to lack of knowledge.

  I come to you all as there is much to learn from you.

I have a 1966 Cub cadet 122 and have purchased a Creeper Gear that I would like to rebuild then install

on the 122.

  I have spoken to many with knowledge of the project but have never done one.

I would like to know about first rebuilding the Creeper part with seals and such before installation .

My questions are many.

I have a parts breakdown but no installation instructions. Is there such a thing? Is there someone selling a parts kit to

get the Creeper updated/repaired before installing? Manual?

I look forward to your comments and suggestions and comments and the help you all can provide.

Thank you in advance for the help.

Its greatly appreciated.

Here are the installation instructions. They are for a 70/100, but I imagine it is would be the same for your tractor.

Here you go Noel
A few pics of the 122. Still has a snowblower on it .
It’s harder to move than the deck so it’s still on and
was part of the display last year at the Apple Festival
with the Case and JD round fender. Both 1966’s I have one
being the Cub and one a Round Fender have their
snowblowers on.
It is a hydraulic lift and I have added the lights to it
and the rear integral lift/hitch.
With the addition of the creeper it will have all
of the options available for it in 1966.

Of the top of my head, no, but I’ll look around a little and see if I can find anything.

Kster526, that a neat tractor. Hydraulic lift is a great thing. Does the creeper transmission add length to the tractor. Or where does it mount. Does this tractor have the rear pto. I know a fella, that is looking for a shifter for one. Another guy down the road from me has a 125 he’s thing about selling. Thanks for the pictures

it goes in front of the rear, you shorten the drive shaft and put it there. The shaft is pre marked and has a hole for the roll pin from the factory.

From what I read it make take longer to rebuild the creeper itself. The instructions tell you to remove the rear from the tractor

roll it out and install the creeper. It looks like a process from the instructions that Cub Cadet sent me. Looking forward to the challenge.

Open up the instructions that he sent me and take a peak

This project put on hold, tractor put back together. Trying to finish up repairs on another one that I thought was done.

Only so much cash to go around these days.

This is for the 70 & 100 installations. Don't know if it will help.

Installing the creeper is really self explanatory there’s not much to intalling them there a piece of cake as long as you have then shorten shaft to make it work extra.... looks like your miss the breather? If your needing to rebuild it I would look at CCspecialties if you need gaskets an tbate07a1e94913714d8c5a3f9f098fefd07.jpg

thank you, was having trouble on CC Specialties figuring which seals and such I needed for it and ran out of cash so left it go for now.It will happen eventually.

Finished up the JD140 and now have the Case 224 deck ripped apart for new bearings,pulleys and partial repaint. What a mess it was.

May mount it to see how it cuts yet. Haven't had time to post any pics of the project
