Default K161 ??

I tore down a 161 off my sons model 72 and while re-assembling, following the manual, when I torque down the governor bushing nut, it cinches the cross shaft and does not allow it to rotate, also per the manual it calls for a "plain washer", no gots, there was not one on there when I dis-assembled the engine so I'm thinking this may be the issue, does anyone have a nice clear picture of the parts breakdown for this. or maybe a clue as to whats happening??

The 72 should have had a K161-30564D engine.

Attached is the Governor image of that engine.

What is/are the difference between the K161 on a 71, or a 72 and a k161 from an Original?
My son has an original that I have to rebuild and a 71 that I have not looked at to assess the condition of,
as of yet.

Nothing. The engines are the same. The setup on the tractor is different. The O belt drives the driveshaft, the others are direct drive. The O didn't necessarily have a front PTO, the others can/do.

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.
