J-Mech, From my very first post: . Two years ago, the hydro tranny started having problems when the splined couplers between the hydraulic unit and gearbox let go. I replaced the couplers, and we continued using it until the main input bevel gears lost all their teeth.

Ok, I did not give part numbers, but the fact that the couplers were replaced and no longer a problem seems clear. I think somewhere along the way, you and I got off on the wrong foot, and now your posts all seem condescending. I would like to put an end to that, as I have been nothing but cordial. Let me know what i’ve Done to offend you, and I will apologize. I do appreciate your expertise, and may need more help if those two gears are available.

You have done nothing to offend me. I have gotten frustrated with you, however, because we/I are trying to help you repair your tractor, but you were adamant that the parts were no longer available. When asked what parts you needed, you gave non existent part numbers and vague descriptions. We/I now understand you need input gears. That's a very simple answer, and I don't understand why after linking you to the manual it took so long to sort it out. You need not apologize to me, but in the future, please try to answer the question directly. We did, afterall, give you all the information and only needed a part number/call-out number and all you had to do was use the name listed that the parts book used. While previous rear history can be important, I think you gave too much focus to the replacement of the couplers (years ago) and that added to the confusion.

Moving forward: If you decide to try and repair the transmission, please follow advice given. Before ordering any parts, you need to remove, disassemble and inspect all the parts and make a list of what all is needed. Start a thread on the rebuild. (As a rebuild will be involved and a new thread under your name will make it easier to follow. ) If you have any questions about parts, post a picture. Pictures almost always totally eliminate confusion.

Good luck!

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.
