Awesome! I will try that out in the morning. Thanks again ironman!

Checked all the clearances between pto brake and pto, all looked good. Started the mower and after about 60 seconds of running, heard a loud grinding at the front. Stopped the engine immediately and saw my pto had started coming off the front of the mower.

Pulled the pto and found the problem. PTO driveshaft bearing had failed inside the pto. Inner part of bearing is still on driveshaft, outer part of bearing is still in pto; loose bearing everywhere. Glad the belt and brake held it on without it flinging out of the mower and potential causing more damage to mower or myself.

Now that I know my problem, I have ordered a pto master rebuild kit and will begin the rebuild when it arrives. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the drive shaft wasn't damaged during this failure.

Thanks everyone for your help, but this is what a critical pto failure looks like...

P.S. If there is interest, I will update this thread with my rebuild of the pto with pictures. Any comments are more than welcome!

I told you in post #6 to check the bearing.
We've all seen this type of failure. No need to document it. Has to be 100 PTO rebuild threads on here.

Considering this is my first Cub and I had only had it a week. You might as well have been speaking Klingon. I appreciate the advise.

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.
