Re: Cub Flat Belt Pulley on Early Cub Cadet PTO

Nope.....just unbolt the flange on the back of the tractor, get some slightly longer 3/8" bolts, and bolt the gearbox right on!. Nothing else needed!.

I'm at a loss for words. Jeff was a great guy and spent many hours talking tractors and everything else with us. Although we dont see each other enough, I still feel we are family and the loss of a member is tough. Prayers from the Woodrum family are with the Piersons tonite.
