Default 124 PTO wear button dimensions

Hey there everyone ! FIRST POST

I have a 124 with no wear button. I do have access to a lathe. Does anyone have the dimensions of the wear button ?
Will brass work? Is bronze best ?

Thank you for the help and insight !

Jeff in PA makes them. He is a sponsor. Click on "Parts by Jeff" at the top of this page. For his price, not worth the trouble to make one yourself.

While I do agree 5.50 is very reasonable, I'm in Canada. By the time I pay taxes twice and shipping and convert my Canadian dollar.....

You might have $8 Canadian dollars in it. (Near as I know how to figure. $.78 conversion rate, + 5% import tax and around 9% sales tax.) It's still cheaper than getting a new one from CCC. They are still available for $9.16 in US dollars. $11.74 Canadian if I can "math", and still easier than making one since you only have access to a lathe, and don't own one.

Well...

I got out the calipers and roughed out some measurements based on the size of the clutch button, the small piece of the original button I had and the semi worn button on my 129.

The diameter of the button is .753"
.25" deep at the outer edge. It has a concave face to keep it centered on the clutch button. I measured .065 difference between center and outer edge.

The press fit seemed tricky to machine... starting at .277 and up to .3 over about a half an inch...... so we tried just putting 1/4" threads on instead.

Going to put it on and try it once things warm up outside!

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
