Before you go making spacers, you need to check to make sure the engine has all 4 spacers under it. Perhaps the rear ones are missing.

The QA42A will go on an 1811 with no issues. No spacer washers needed. Your engine has to not be mounted correctly, or the pulley is wrong. You did change the pulley, correct? The one that it uses for the 1250 will not work with the necessary 5/8" belt the 1811 uses.

I've ran a QA42A on my 1811 one year when the 450 broke and I was waiting for parts. Mounted right up, no issues.

J-Mech, good catch and thanks for the good advice. I will check for engine spacers tomorrow. The PO had put a 5/8 pulley on the thrower already.

While I'm noticing things.....

When you repaired your front axle, you put the bolt in backwards that prevents the axle from rocking. The bolt head is supposed to face the axle and it should have a thin walled jam nut on front to lock it in place. Wears better when it is installed correctly.

I just replaced the worn castle nut and bolt with a longer bolt and used two nuts to lock it. Are you saying the frame or axle are supposed to be threaded? If so the threads are worn away. The bolt slipped right through them both. The frame is a C-channel so I tightened the first nut until the axle didn't wobble but was free to pivot, then jambed it with the second nut.

That's my mistake. The bolt I circled I now see is the center pivot bolt. It is installed correctly.


However, upon closer inspection, on the far end I can see the bolt I was thinking of. It appears pretty loose. (It's under the red circle at the 9 o'clock position.) There are two bolts that go through a "flap" (for lack of a better term) in the frame just in front of the axle. One on each side. Tightening them towards the axle takes the side to side play out of the axle. They are supposed to lightly rub the axle. Make sure they are adjusted correctly, and all is good. I keep a little bit of oil or grease on the head of mine when I grease the tractor. Keeps it from wearing the axle and bolt out. Plus, sometimes they squeak and it gets annoying.


That axle was worn pretty bad. Probably needed a bushing installed.....

Rats! I googled the part number shown of the angled bracket (IH 79011 C1) and I ordered this: https://www.ihccw.com/index.php?rout...earch=top+link

I received straight links because I didn't read all the way to the bottom of the description. I asked them to remedy this for me. I should have bought from Extreme.

"TOP LINKS ARE STRAIGHT (Not As Shown) "

Piss poor advertising. A responsible Vendor would have shown the actual part instead of mis-leading their customers.

After emailing ihccw and complaining about the misleading listing for top links they refunded the money for the links and apologized.

Customer service like that will get my business again.

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.
