A flange mount has the bolts in the same plane as the shaft.

I am using a pillow block as well. I wanted to bolt it to the top of the front hydro but the pillow block was a little to tall. I'm using a heavy cast one that is self aligning. I ended up just bolting it to a piece of angle and welding the angle to the frame. I am only planning on using a single belt so I am concerned about that now. Have you sorted out why the belt shred happened? The issue with the rear hydro did you find out why it wasn't driving? (maybe I missed something in the posts)

The front rear was already tapped with bolts in it but the pillow block was too tall. I used 6 inch pulleys to have a little more surface area for the belt. Using a B belt as well.

Due to geometry of my engine/rear axle, my lower pulley is directly over the hydro's filter, so my pulley is limited to 3.5 inch dia. With your larger pulleys and a fatter belt, you may be fine. My belt shredded (I think) when the hydro seized momentarily.

Well that is one impressive build! You can always tell when you've done a great job when people comment, " I didn't know they made such a thing" meaning it looks factory built and not home made. Not much you can't tackle after this project!

I'm guessing you have the donor hydro in place, since it's all buttoned up?

When I had the hydro apart, I did not remove the cylinder blocks from the shafts, but they both turned with the shafts as you'd expect. I suppose the spline(s) could be stripped and my spinning the shafts by hand did not reveal that situation. There was no debris or evidence of metal pieces anywhere inside the unit. The pinion out the back of the motor block looks good and is coupled to the motor block shaft.

Yes, removing the rear cover is next.

The rear axle has been working up to this point fine, and was working just a couple weeks ago when I had both axles off the floor to sync them better. Engine running, both axles worked as expected.

It's got to be something simple. Hope it's the filter. Will replace that tomorrow. Also need to check the suction tube to make sure it's not plugged somehow. Should have checked that when I had it apart...
Let us know. That is puzzling.

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.
