Default Pulling rearend tip

OK, I would guess some of you have seen the ring gear snubbers that are for sale by now. We've been using something similar for at least 15 years. its not a new discovery. I have to credit Chuck Vogel for this one though. all you need is a 3/8 x 2 1/2 in long stud with an allen head. a 3/8 long nut and a 3/8 X 1 bolt and lock washer.

on the right side the forward bolt hole that holds the axle tube on. drill it all the way through and tap it.

thread the stud through till it bottoms out on the ring gear, back it off an 1/8 turn and lock it in place with the long nut.

counter sink the back side of the axle tube that match's up with the long nut with a 5/8 drill bit so the tube will slid over the top of the long nut. use the 3/8x1 bolt to hold the tube to the long nut.

in the end you can't see that there was ever anything done to it

the rearend in the lower right pic is getting a Super Cub 2 speed gear box. that's why the top shaft looks different.

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.
