Default Shredding Mule Drive Belt IH Cub 982 and MTD 50" deck

I have a 1981 IH Cub 982 that I inherited from my aunt with the wrong deck on it. Once I figured out it had the wrong deck, I located a MTD Cub 50C deck and installed it. I am using the same lift linkage. The mule drive belt rubs the lift linkage. It had not with 44" deck that was too small. I have not figured out what is wrong, but the only thing I can figure would be if there are different height front deck hangers, and would this one need taller ones? Does anyone have suggestions?

I will upload a picture once I figure out how to resize it on my phone

First, welcome to OCC..........

The 982 had three mower deck options. That being a 46", 50" and 60"

Focusing in on the 50" deck (50C or 190-359-100), there is the 190-361-100 Mule Drive (or Adapter Pkg) that is needed to properly mount the deck to the tractor.

If you have the correct Mule Drive, the proper PTO belt is: 954-3006

Thanks, I did not realize there was an adapter kit. I assume I have the wrong one since the old 44" deck did not shred belts, but the new 50" deck does? Is there any way to identify which is which? It looks like the adapter kit is still available

As far as the belt goes, a friend repowered it with a Kohler V-twin after the onan blew up, so the belt length is slightly different now

The Mule Drive for the 50C were:

GT used 190-360-100
SGT used 190-361-100

The SGT Mule Drive is for the added height, of these Tractors.

If you are in need of the 190-361-100 Mule Drive, you can contact either Sponsor listed about (Houtz or Patton), as they may have a good used one.

Do you know of any measurements that would tell me which I have? It sounds like I have the wrong one. I will check onto the sponsors for one when I get off work

The 190-360-100 will simply not fit because of the height and depth.

I finally got pictures resized. This worked with the 44" deck, but not with the 50" I bought locally.

The 44C deck and the 50C deck mount the.....SAME.

I don't understand what the problem is. Everything is where the manual says it should be mounted, but the belt rubs with the 50", but it did not with the 44" deck. The only thing I can figure is the "front support hangers" are too short.

Can't see with the red squiggly lines in that one image.

The ONLY difference between the 44C and the 50C.....is the......Width.

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.
