Cadet numbers off engine and rear-end

Posted by BS Acres (Members) at Mar 16 2009, 09:47 AM. 8 comments

Hey guys. Let me start out by saying this web site is awsome. Its nice to have a place to go and look at the other stuff thats out there and maybe get a new idea or two.

Ive had my cadet now for 17 years. I have never been able to get a actual ID on the year and model. We Grandpa bought he was told it was a 72 and when I picked up some part last spring they said it was a 69. Any way its now sitting in the shop completly broke down to re painted and motor gone through. But I found the numbers on the tag o motor and the number stamped into the rearend. Just trying to get some info on this tractor. I plan on building a loader for it and would like to see if there is a pto that goes on this unit or if I am going to have to design something for it. My mower deck is shot. Pulleys have worn out and now one here in Minnesota can get me part.(so the tell me.) So I found your great site and thought maybe someone here can help.

Numbers on motor tag
Spec # 46611D

Numbers on stamped in Rearend on a raised block 112780
Numbers forged in casting are 38508R1

I thank you all for taking the time to read and post here.
BS ACRES. :Cub6 what my machine looks like. except it has a homemade fenders in rear

147 front axel

Posted by jeff0862 (Members) at Mar 15 2009, 08:37 PM. 13 comments

I noticed when I was running the tractor that the front axel had some play underneath where the pin comes out of the back where it comes through the frame.
Now that I have the tractor torn down I removed the axel. The pin was tight where it goes through the front of the frame and tight through the axel. but is ovaled out on the back end of the frame. It dosn't appear like it should be this way. I was thinking a fix could be to weld a couple of 5/8 ID washers to the frame. Are there any other fixes?
Thanks Jeff

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.
