Default Steering Box Question

Everything I find on rebuilding these Ross boxes shows the end cap with a slot, and holes in the housing for a cotter pin. Mine, OTOH, has a cap with a half moon slot (like a woodruff key) and no holes in the housing. So, any ideas about that? What would be some good ways to hold the final adjustment in lieu of the cotter pin? My only idea so far (short of adjusting it then drilling through for a pin) would be a bit of Loctite. Any other thoughts?

Hi Bob,

I suggest that a couple of photos might help the group help you. I wonder if your steering box is a replacement? Mine had the cotter pin through the side.

Good luck!
Andy

The early Ross boxes didn’t have the cotter pin and hole to hold the end cap from turning. The box on my 100 is like that.

Once you have it adjusted, you are suppose to stake it to hold in place. If I remember correctly when I did my 100 box, I staked it right on the edge near the threads.

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.
