Default 1812 - fan on drive shaft

Hi there! I have the above workhorse! Recently I have had the plastic fan on the rear of the driveshaft which cools the tranny shredded! The original happened about 3 years ago had it replaced last year, shredded this past December. Do not know why this is happening.

Had to replace the drive shaft rubber couplings about 8 years ago. Could there be a connection to this fan issue?

Any ideas appreciated as to why this happens!

Fanless in CT

First, welcome to OCC....

The Plastic Fans are fairly durable. My guess it hit something to explode.

(A) Make sure the fan is secured to the Drive Shaft with the mounting bolt.

(B) If you have excessive "wobble" in the Drive Shaft, check (1) the Flex Disc on each end of the drive shaft, and (2) check the Pilot Bushings in the Flex Disc Couplers.

If any parts are worn, replace as necessary.

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.
