Default Looking for machinest near Lebanon, PA

I'm going to be tackling a large project this winter and looking for a machinist near Lebanon PA to make some parts. I'm going to be attempting to install a d600 in a 582 and will need help getting the clutch connected to the flywheel and have a general idea on how I want to do it. I think one of you guys is over around Allentown but can't remember who it is. Thanks in advance

I agree, contact Jeff.

But... if you are putting a D600 in a 582, you do know that unless you are planning major rear end work, that the flywheel side of the engine needs to be in front, right? That way you have 3 forward gears, and one reverse. If you put it in the other way, you have to do quite a bit more work, and you won't be able to run any attachments with it, because they would spin backwards.

I'm aware of the work needed in the diff and was planning on doing taller gears anyway. That part don't scare me, just doing the machining is what was getting me.and as far as powering attachments, a sleeve hitch is all I need. Thanks, I'll contact Jeff.

If you go putting "taller" gears in, and flipping the differential, there are other issues that will need addressed. You want to find out the hard way? Or you want someone who knows to save you time?? Listen, don't listen.... I don't care either way. Besides... if it's going to be a plow tractor, you don't want anything "taller" than a 19 tooth second, or it will be too fast. The D600 isn't exactly a big powerhouse.

Well, then take my advice and put the engine in the other way, and leave the gears alone.

Reversing the R/P changes the way the pinion shaft is loaded. Instead of pushing the pinion shaft into the bearing, it will be pulling it to the rear of the tractor, which puts all the load on the snap ring holding the shaft in. It may hold for a while, but it will eventually be a problem. You can do some machining, and double the snap ring. That will help. You can swap the R/P to a later style straight cut set. That will eliminate the issue. You can order a reverse cut R/P for about $700. Or you can put the engine in the other way, and not worry about any of it.

There are already engine mounts made for the D600 to go right into a 582. If you reverse the engine, you are going to have to redesign all the engine mounts. You are creating a lot of work for yourself to gain.....????? What is the gain putting it in the other way? If you use the CCC clutch, you don't need a flywheel. There is only one reason to swap the direction of the engine, and as of yet, I haven't heard you state it. I think you are making more work for yourself than necessary.

Like I stated earlier, if you plan to plow with this tractor, then you don't want "taller" gears. You may think you know what you need, but I don't think you do. In my opinion, if you really were into this kind of thing, you would know where a good machinist was without asking people on a world wide forum. I mean, asking random people in your area would be more beneficial. I will say, that Jeff already makes a lot of things to adapt the D600 into other tractors. But as of yet, likely not anything to put a clutch on one. He will do it, and do it well, and treat you fair. But I think you need to figure out what you are doing first.

I know a good machinist in the Lebanon area in case you have not found one by now. PM me if you want to know more.

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.
